Graduate research tells us that tertiary students with disability find it more difficult to secure employment opportunities after graduation.
56 per cent of students with disability report being in full time employment, four months after completion. That’s over 18 per cent lower than the average statistic for all graduates (69%).
AND’s Stepping Into program is a paid internship scheme that matches talented university students with disability with roles in leading Australian businesses.
For students, it's a chance to gain vital work experience during study. For businesses it's a talent pipeline that helps cultivate an inclusive and diverse workplace culture.
We caught up with some past interns to find out what they learnt from the experience.
