Interns Australia is the support and advocacy body for interns and students undertaking work placements in Australia. Founded in 2013, we work with interns, employers, industry, governments and the community to promote the value 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.
