Celebrating 10 Years - Whitehorse Tertiary Business Skills Program

The Whitehorse Tertiary Business Skills Program is an innovative student internship that matches second, third year and postgraduate students from Deakin Business School with local businesses.

2018 celebrated 10 years of this program with the milestone being further elevated through achieving a silver award at the prestigious 2018 National Local Government Innovation Awards.  This reflects the successful collaboration between Whitehorse City Council, Deakin University, local businesses and students.

This year’s program concluded with a milestone presentation event held at Deakin University with Burke and Beyond, Taralye and the Whitehorse Business Group recognised for their continuous involvement, contribution and commitment to the program.

For further information on this program please visit the Whitehorse Tertiary Business Skills Program page on this website.

We take this opportunity to thank the 2018 business participants and look forward to your ongoing involvement in the 2019 program.
