AIYEP Work Experience

Organisations in Australia and Indonesia support the Australia-Indonesia Youth Program ( AIYEP) by offering participants  a short term work experience placement. 

In 2024, we are seeking organisations in Canberra to host AIYEP participants from Indonesia on a

three-week placement from 11 November to 29 November.

A work placement is  a key learning experience for AIYEP participants. Australian and Indonesian organisations offer in-country placements to individual participants who work on a project for three weeks. Fostering the cross cultural learning aspects of the program, Indonesian participants are hosted by Australian organisations while Australian participants undertake their placement with an Indonesian organisation. 

AIYEP participants come from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds. Value Learning supports each organisation to develop suitable workplan while guiding participants on workplace norms and expectations. The organisations listed below have offered past and possible work opportunities to AIYEP.

The Australia Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) is a fully funded program sponsored by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, offering the opportunity for young people aged 21-25 from Indonesia and Australia to spend time in both countries learning about each other's cultures, and expanding their personal and professional network across the Australia-Indonesia diplomatic, academic and business world.

Why offer a short term work placement ?

For Australian organisations this program offers the opportunity to engage in a high quality personal, cultural and professional exchange, sharing their experience of diverse aspects of Australian work culture with young representatives from Indonesia. In 2024, this experience will take place over three weeks in Canberra and participants are expected to engage in 30 hours of work per week during the full time placement.


What does an
AIYEPer do during the work placement?

In 2024, AIYEPers will work in organisations in Canberra while developing intercultural skills and learning about Australian work and organisational culture.


Value Learning provides support for you to develop a work plan suitable for an AIYEP placement, and we also support and train AIYEPers in Australian workplace norms and expectations.
