One or more members of your organisation should act as a supervisor to the student undertaking an internship. Ideally, the work has meaningful outcomes for both the student and your organisation. Many student placements ultimately lead to employment opportunities after formal internship has completed.
You can advertise an opportunity at any time throughout the year. Once you apply to host an intern, the process begins. The Partnerships and Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Team will circulate your notice to students. Students then apply directly to you, and you carry out your own selection process.
Your organisation, the student and RMIT will sign a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Agreement before any vocational placement begins. Your nominated workplace supervisor will orientate the student, provide ongoing performance feedback and liaise with the student’s course coordinator at RMIT if required.
If you require a more tailored approach and would like to explore our partnership opportunities, please contact our team.
