Consortium: International Volunteering Australia
International students contribute greatly to Australia’s cultural diversity and richness. It is therefore important to support them throughout their study and in particular their workplace experiences. Volunteering has been proven to be one way work placement for international students can be enhanced. This project aims to improve international students’ workplace experience by providing quality volunteering opportunities prior to, during and after work placement. Such opportunities have potential to enhance engagement between sectors such as building positive relationships between all stakeholders.
