Indigenous cadetship support formerly the National Indigenous cadetship project or program (NICP) links Indigenous Australian students with employers in cadetship arrangements involving full-time study and work placements. This enables students to get professional qualifications and experience in a range of jobs and move into ongoing employment when they complete their studies.
Applicants must be Indigenous Australians studying full-time (or enrolled to study full-time) at an Australian TAFE college, registered training organisation or university in a diploma, advanced diploma or their first undergraduate degree. Students undertake a 12-week paid work placement (or equivalent) for each year of their cadetship, usually between academic years.
