This workplace support networking program is not part of the course you are enrolled in as part of your current student visa. We are looking for students who want to stay in Australia and work to get the experience required to apply for a Skilled Visa in the hospitality and tourism industry (in Queensland) to help the industry recover from the effects COVID-19 has had on Queensland Businesses.

This is a free workplace support program for you, and while it has been developed by trainers working in international student education, it is not funded or associated with any CRICOS registered training provider. It is subject to the work restrictions of your student Visa. You can discuss with the college you are enrolled with to find out how you can use your work experience to help you progress through your studies.

This program is only available now thanks to the Australian businesses that have helped us over the past few years to improve the quality of training for all students in Australia.

Fill out the form below to apply for the program, and we will email you the next steps in the selection process to confirm your interest in the program.
