Last year, the Mill House was supported by the University of Canberra Foundation to develop a student-led social enterprise professional consultancy. The aim was to provide quality support to start-up social and Indigenous business while also creating meaningful Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities for tertiary students from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Our pilot started in January and ran through the end of Semester 2, 2019 (July). The detailed aims and the results of the pilot are described in the Evaluation Report below.
