Indigenous Cadetship

Updated: 13 January 2011

The Indigenous Cadetship Support (ICS) is part of the Australian Government's Indigenous Economic Development Strategy and aims to improve the professional employment prospects of Indigenous Australians. It links Indigenous tertiary students with employers in a cadetship arrangement involving full-time study and work placements. Cadetships enable Indigenous students to gain the professional qualifications and experience needed for a range of jobs in the private, public and community sectors and move into employment on completion of their studies. It can also assist employers to identify potential Indigenous employees.
