Business community and universities unite to boost graduate skills and employability

ACCI and IRU’s groundbreaking project designed to encourage businesses to engage with universities, and provide industry relevant experiences for students, will be launched by Senator Chris Evans on Monday 28 February from 9.30am at Parliament House, Canberra.

Senator Evans will address the IRU Vice-Chancellors, Senior ACCI Executives, project group members from the IRU member universities and representatives from the State and Territory Chambers and industry associations involved in the project.

Working together ACCI and IRU have developed a suite of seven case studies from a range of businesses across Australia, which informs employers about the possibilities and benefits of providing work integrated learning placements for students.
