AFL SportsReady aims to link employers who are looking to engage with an Indigenous student in order to provide meaningful employment experience for 10 weeks per year. This opportunity assists students in achieving not only a great education and a practical experience within their chosen field, but will also contribute to your workplace diversity.
AFL SportsReady will provide access to mentoring support to students throughout the year and can also assist in providing services to employers, such as additional support and cultural awareness training for supervisors and staff.
As an employer, you will be required to provide 10 weeks of paid employment for the student throughout the year. This can be undertaken as a ‘block’ at the end of the academic year (for example Dec – Feb) or may be done on a more regular basis during the study semester (such as once a week). This can be arranged directly between you and the student, once they are successfully engaged in the program.
Whether you want to have a particular student in mind, want to offer an opportunity to eligible students or simply want your organisation to contribute to the education, upskilling and reconciliation of our Indigenous community, please complete your details below and one of our Cadetship team will be in contact with you.
