Work Integrated Learning
Remote Internship Program

Remote internships offer the same learnings and experiences of a traditional office-based internship.

 

 

Outcome.Life has developed a remote internship model which is providing additional skills to students and graduates as communication and accountability is even more prevalent in creating successful internship outcomes.

 

We have identified several key support mechanisms designed to help both students and host company supervisors deliver an exceptional internship outcome and provide the necessary soft skill & technical skills required for students to excel in their future careers.

Pre-Internship Preparation

Software & Programs

We work with our Host Companies closely to understanding as much about the internship as possible. 

This includes software and programs they use internally so we can provide pre-internship support to all students in preparation for their internship.

 

Training Plans

Students are provided with an overall 12-Week training plan showing roles & responsibilities as well as learning outcomes.

This is then cut into weekly and daily internship plans in order to keep students on track and to deliver in accordance with their educational course requirements.

Outcome.Life support both students and host companies with best practice guidelines during the internship.

Outcome.Life Support

The remote internship model also allows the team at Outcome.Life to jump on these calls to check in with the host companies and interns to hear about what they have been doing.

 

Post Internship Requirements

Daily Logbooks

Using our proprietary software InternMatch, students are required to complete a daily logbook specifying the requirements and outcomes for each day of their internship.

These daily logbooks are approved or rejected each day by their internship supervisor to validate their experience and to keep all interns on track.

Students are then able to update their entries based on the feedback of their supervisor.

Udani is completing an internship with GADA Technology – learning about automated testing.

GADA Technology create custom software for business’ all around the world.

Working in a business is more than just completing tasks associated to the role. 

We encourage students and host companies to plan fun social activities to help form personal professional relationships for both the intern and their teams.

What our students say

"Due to COVID-19, my internship started in the office but I was then asked to work from home. I loved this as I was able to video call with my team each day and even had 'virtual coffee's' with my supervisor."
