What is it?
Industry Experience is where you apply your classroom learning to real world situations, through competing internships or voluntary opportunities. We work hard to ensure that our students have access to a wide range of industry experience opportunities that allow them to apply their learning to real world situations. The ACPE Industry experience program is made up of paid and unpaid roles across volunteering, internship and course related opportunities. Industry Experience is key for students to create their own professional networks, build their confidence out in the professional world and sets them up for every opportunity to gain paid employment both during your time as a student and upon completion of your studies. We know it can seem daunting, getting out there in the professional world, however we are here to support each and every student to ensure they feel ready and comfortable to take this next step! ACPE’s partnerhsip network provides unpaid and paid opportunities that allow you to gain such Industry Experience while studying. Our advice, make the most of this opportunity to learn from some of the leading minds and organisations in Sport, Health, Fitness, Education and Dance across NSW.
How to get started
We are committed to supporting our students to ensure that they feel ready to take this next step – we do not just send students out there, we meet with them, work through their strengths and weaknesses and more. We manage our exclusive ACPE jobs board called The ACPE Careers Hub. The ACPE Careers Hub has been designed to allow ACPE students to apply for a wide range of voluntary, internship and paid Industry Experience opportunities with our valuable Industry Network which is made up of schools, sports organisations, sports teams, dance studios, councils and many more. As always, we are happy to support all ACPE Students in preparing their application, providing general career advice and discussing future opportunities.
