Engaging student talent

We connect your business with our exceptional students from diverse backgrounds to deliver projects in your workplace.

Work Based Learning creates a mutually beneficial partnership between business and student.

It connects our highly adaptive students within a professional practice to learn industry specific skills and deliver exceptional results on your key projects and programs.

We understand Work Based Learning can be complicated. We know businesses don’t operate like universities and organisations often need talent from multiple areas of expertise to deliver projects.

That’s why we’ve consolidated our Work Based Learning program into one central team that provides you with the smarts of a university with the agility of a consultancy.

Our centralised approach means you can access a diversity of students across multiple knowledge areas from one place.

Whether you need five or 15, we can connect you with the right students who can immediately put their knowledge towards delivering specific projects in your workplace.

We’ll also help you navigate Fair Work and manage the complexity of term-driven students in project-driven workplaces, making sure students are delivering core projects when you need them.

Best of all, our students are exceptional.
