Work Based Projects


To ensure that participants apply learnings within their organisations and wider community, participation in Short Course Awards is underpinned by a work-based project. All participants are required to develop and implement a small project which is related to the course topic and learning objectives and utilises the knowledge and skills gained from the course to contribute to their organisation and its priorities.

The proposed project should describe a change in policy, systems, processes or delivery of services within an organisational context. Projects must be achievable in a six to 12-month period and not require additional funding or resources from the employer/organisation. Australia Awards will not provide additional funding for work-based projects.

Focus areas of projects are determined in consultation with the participant and their employer, taking into consideration organisational needs and desired outputs and outcomes. It is important that projects are endorsed by the organisation before participants commence.
