Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship Program

In 2012 USQ commenced the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship Program – an initiative of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Career Development and Employment Strategy and is reflective of the Reconciliation Action Plan. USQ is committed to closing the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and through this Strategy USQ aims to enhance the educational, employment, training and career development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship Program involves the employment of Trainees within USQ Faculty's and Sections on a full-time basis on a Fixed Term Contract within the relevant calendar year. Upon successful completion of the Traineeship, Trainees receive a nationally recognised accredited Certificate III qualification. 

Each work area is committed to providing Trainee's with the support and guidance to carry out their role and fulfill the requirements of the traineeship. 

Further information about the program can be found in the information sheet
