ABOUT THE ACADEMY

Young Australians are the future of our industry. The Austral Academy was launched to connect with young Aussies and amplify the visibility of the many exciting opportunities, pathways, and professional careers available in the seafood industry.

We achieve this through on-site school visits and careers expos throughout Australia, in addition to engaging Austral’s experienced team of General Managers and Operations leaders who provide mentoring, support, and on-the-job training to our Academy members!

SCHOOL & CAREERS EVENTS

We launched the Academy in mid-2022, and it's been hugely popular with schools, teachers, kids, and careers expos since then!

In 2024 we're going even bigger, and we're continuously increasing our engagements with schools, training organisations and event organisers to connect with more young Australians looking for alternative career options.
