Indigenous Cadetship Program

Indigenous Cadetship Program

The University of Wollongong is passionate about creating opportunities for Indigenous Employment. 

The University's Cadetship Program is an initiative of the Employment Equity and Diversity Unit (EED) in response to the objectives outlined in the UOW Indigenous Employment Strategy. 

The program aims to improve the professional employment prospects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within the University of Wollongong and more broadly within the community. 

The Indigenous Cadetship Program is structured as a three year fixed term contract that provides part-time employment and full-time study, as a combination of an undergraduate degree and on the job training.

Appointment to the cadetship is via merit selection at interview. Successful applicants will work under the University’s conditions of employment.

Cadets are mentored by the Indigenous Employment Officer and are also provided with a nominated workplace mentor to support them in balancing their workplace and study commitments at UOW.

The University also has programs for trainees, apprentices and post graduates.
