Industry Partnership Rewards Program 

Marketing and communication students at the Australian Pacific College

APC Education Group strives to expand its brand presence and create opportunities for engagement and learning in the real world for our students. We continue to create industry partnerships by articulating our programs that bring mutual benefit to all involved. 

These opportunities include the development of Work Integrated Learning Programs (ProjectBase, Work Placement), seminars, conferences and work experience placements for APC students.

Here are some common FAQs:

Work Integrated Learning Programs comprise of:


Our ProjectBase program is designed to engage our high-performing students with local businesses and industry professionals to enhance their employability skills and offer them hands-on experience in the current workplace.

This is an 8 week program, at no cost to you, where our students volunteer their ideas in response to your business projects while being assisted by our academic team throughout the program. This allows students to apply the experiences and expertise that they have gained from their qualifications in a real-world setting. They can put their skills to the test and practice teamwork and collaboration with industry stakeholders to bring an idea, concept, or business plan to life.

Work Placement 

Work Placement is an important part of Vocational Education courses, where students have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a real-world business environment and learn from experts in the industry.

Students will be required to complete coursework alongside their work placement. This is specified within the course and subject documents and may include project work and reflective journals for the duration of their work placement experience. These activities are graded components of the course and serve as a way for APC to offer continuous support and guidance to students on a weekly basis during their work placement.

ProjectBase is delivered on campus, while Work Placement can be remote or in-house.
