The Engineering Pathway Industry Cadetship (EPIC) is an 18-month program for refugee and asylum seeker engineers working on major transport infrastructure projects.
The Engineering Pathway Industry Cadetship (EPIC) is delivered by the Training for the Future, a Level Crossing Removal Project initiative.
The Engineering Pathway Industry Cadetship (EPIC) is an 18-month program for refugee and asylum seeker engineers working on major transport infrastructure projects. There are 19 cadets currently taking part in the program.
The industry-first program aims to bridge the gap faced by new Australians in matching their international qualifications to Australian workforce requirements.
Cadets receive on-the-job training, support and mentoring and also complete a postgraduate Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Engineering Management through Swinburne University.
The Graduate Certificate, combined with their international qualifications and the workplace experience gained through the program, will kick-start the cadet’s careers in engineering in Victoria.
The paid cadetship provides valuable local work experience and access to industry networks – addressing the barriers often faced by new Australians in accessing professional employment.
Led by the Level Crossing Removal Project, employers from across State Government and private industry have signed on to support these vital roles across transport infrastructure and construction.
Applications for 2023 are now closed.
50 cadets have been employed through the program to date.
This program is run by Training for the Future through the Level Crossing Removal Project – a project office of Major Transport Infrastructure Authority delivering Victoria’s Big Build.
