FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The internship is unpaid.

Unpaid internships are legal in Australia if they are part of a vocational placement as defined by the Fair Work Act 2009, which is why we started the Work Readiness Program. Most unpaid internships or voluntary work that is not for a registered organisation is illegal and can result in legal action.

Please see the Fair Work Australia website for more information on the rules around work experience and internships.

The Space Tank x Outcome.Life program is a learning experience, created for you to gain hands-on design experience in a safe, supportive and accessible way.

You can leverage this experience for future job applications and show your potential employers that you have real-life, design-driven project experience.

We believe that doing an internship can dramatically increase the chances of getting a paid job as it can differentiate you from your peers in a competitive graduate market.

Nationally, approximately 90% of people who complete an internship begin working within their field of study within 6 months.

We provide two certificates for completion of this internship.

When you complete the accredited online course via our Registered Training Organisation, Outcome Academy (RTO number 45564), you will receive a Statement of Attainment for the accredited unit, BSBIND201 Work effectively in a business environment.

At the conclusion of your internship, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. You can also use your plans, drawings and designs in your professional portfolio.
