An internship at SCOA will give you the opportunity to see first-hand how a national peak organisation operates. You will be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the organisation, with a focus on research and policy development.
The time spent on a SCOA internship will shape your research skills by allowing you to put methods learnt through a university setting into a ‘real world’ situation. The work to be undertaken will be part of real and ongoing projects currently being completed by SCOA staff. You will be able to develop your team work skills by working in a small team.
SCOA aims to ensure interns receive a meaningful experience developing their skills for future employment. Intern projects vary depending on SCOA’s current activities. Each intern will be provided with a project brief tailored to their internship. Interns may be asked to undertake ad hoc activities and attend various sector meetings and consultations. These additional tasks will provide insight into the settlement sector.
At times you will be required to work independently, so a certain level of autonomy is expected for this internship. The team is very supportive of each other, and are committed to creating a learning environment for those completing an internship with SCOA.
