Interns Australia is the support and advocacy body for interns and students undergoing work placements in Australia. Founded in 2013, we are committed to building awareness amongst employers, industry, governments and the community of the value of creating a strong culture of quality and equitable internships.
To do this, Interns Australia operates across three areas:
- Research: We conduct research to gain quantitative and qualitative data on internship-related issues.
- Consulting and lobbying: We engage with employers, industry and government to promote and facilitate best practice internships and to lobby for law reform to protect interns.
- Education: We raise awareness of issues affecting interns and the value of genuine and worthwhile internships among students, interns, employers, the community and other stakeholders.
