A start-up has launched a program where participants pay $1,500 and go to work for an ASX-listed corporation.

The company, Paper Plane, says this is not an internship program, but a “learning platform of the future” that consists of a mix of life coaching, digital workshops with “industry experts”, and actual work for the partner company – around 35 hours in total. The weekly breakdown is three hours of workshops, five hours of work, and some mentoring. All up it goes for seven weeks. The entire course takes place online – the participants never go to the office of the business they are working for.
