SPACE INDUSTRY WORK EXPERIENCE – YEAR 10 TO 11 STUDENTS

Applications are now open for the 3rd Space Industry Work Experience (SIWE) Program. This structured work experience program organised by the South Australian Space Industry Centre (SASIC) and the Commonwealth funded SA Student Pathways Program within the SA Department for Education allows South Australian secondary school students aged 15 and over to complete two to five days placements (depending on host capacity) with ‘Space Industry’, ‘Space Research’ or ‘Space Skills’ hosts.

Current secondary school students (including 2021 completing Year 12s) who applied in 2019/2020 who were not shortlisted or were placed on a reserve list are invited to apply again. Students who have completed a previous SIWE placement are ineligible to apply. Those who were shortlisted in 2020 and have not yet received a placement due to COVID-19 restrictions will be automatically shortlisted for the 3rd SIWE program and given ‘placement priority’.

Placements for this Space Industry Work Experience pilot program are strictly limited, and all applications will be assessed by a panel of representatives from SASIC and the Department for Education. Applicants will be shortlisted for the positions and interviews may be required to determine the successful final applicants.

Further information can be found at Space Industry Work Experience Program-3 and students must complete all questions and submit all completed/signed documents listed online here. Applicants will be notified by email about their completed application registration within two weeks and advised whether they have been shortlisted after applications have been reviewed by SASIC and the Department for Education personnel by late November, 2021.

Please note it is highly competitive process and students need to devote a lot of effort to their applications to have a chance at success.
