Beacon Students

Driving Opportunity with the Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation is proud to partner with The Beacon Foundation to provide work experience opportunities for young students, who are at Beacon Foundation Member schools.

The aim of this program is to provide young people the ability to gain work experience, skills and confidence, as part of a longer term strategy to increase employment opportunities.

The Beacon Foundation has an established track record of inspiring students to either stay in school and increase their educational engagement or to choose a positive pathway that enables successful transition to employment, further education or training.

The Beacon Foundation will identify appropriate placement candidates, and guide them through the application, selection and training process. This is a work experience opportunity, not paid work. It is an opportunity for young people to discover and explore potential career options.

A number of our event suppliers have been generous in supporting this initiative by providing placement opportunities within a variety of areas and industries.

  • Confederation of Australian Motorsport

This first year is a trial, and as such placement numbers are limited, so Beacon will ensure the best fit between applicants and opportunities.

We’re proud to offer this program to help the community in which we all live and work, and hope that we can make a positive difference.

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED Thank you for your interest.
