It's a mutually beneficial partnership that helps shape a better future for both students and the industry.

What is the Industry Partnership Reward Program?

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.

Course Advisory Committee (CAC)

The CAC members are chosen to ensure specialists and experts in both pedagogy and specific learning fields enhance our learners' needs. The CAC operates independently of the Academic Committee, maintaining and overseeing the quality of APC courses, specifically related to its curriculum. 

As a valued CAC member, your role is to provide specialised insights and advice, contributing to the refinement of APC courses, particularly in terms of curriculum and the overall learner experience. Your industry-specific expertise will be instrumental in offering guidance for the development and ongoing revision of APC courses.



As a speaker, you have the option of preparing a 25-minute TED-style live or pre-recorded session. If you choose the pre-recorded option, you will need to be available on the day for the Live Q&A with our students following your presentation.

Work Integrated Learning Programs: 

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.  Read more...

By choosing to participate as a stakeholder in our Work Placement program, you are choosing to actively contribute to the development of future professionals and play a crucial role in shaping their practical skills and industry knowledge. This collaboration not only enhances the educational journey of our students but also establishes a meaningful connection between your organisation and the next generation of skilled professionals.

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 needs. This allows students to apply the experience they have gained from their qualifications in a real-world setting. They can put their skills to the test, practising teamwork and collaboration with industry stakeholders to bring an idea, concept, or business plan to life.

By choosing to participate you not only contribute to the professional development of our high-performing students but also gain valuable insights and innovative solutions for your business. Read more...
