INSTEP/Workplace Learning is a joint school and industry work placement strategy enabling motivated Years 11 and 12 students to work towards secondary graduation using school, workplace learning and in some cases TAFE style learning environments. This valuable program is different to work experience-rather than observe what goes on, students are given the opportunity to complete tasks related to their vocational course, whilst at the same time take part in relevant, real but supervised work.


Madalah Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation that offers secondary, transition and tertiary education scholarships at Australia's leading boarding schools and universities for Indigenous students from remote, rural and regional communities.

Regal Theatre 

In 2010 Iona Presentation College staged its first musical in association with theRegal Theatre in Subiaco. Since that time, Iona has staged seven productions at The Regal. In 2016, Iona staged Annie and sold out with over 5000 people attending the show over five performances. This successful association between Iona and the Regal Theatre is a great example of how education and industry partnerships are successfully shaping the contemporary arts education landscape and providing schools and industry with new audiences and new opportunities for the aspiring performers of the future.

University of Western Australia

For the past five years, Iona has been in partnership with the University of Western Australia in our Reciprocal Mentoring Program, where student teachers in the areas of Design, Visual Arts and Media visit Iona to provide mentoring and tuition to our girls in Production Arts.

WA Youth Theatre Company 

In 2015 Iona Performing Arts department fostered links between our students and WA Youth Theatre Company. The company took up residence at the MosArts (Mosman Park Arts Foundation) and the close proximity to Iona made the collaboration a relatively easy one to maintain. The training program offered by the company provides an opportunity for young people to develop their performance skills and learn the craft through the instruction of professional actors, teachers and arts workers.  The training also allows students to build new creative communities, friendships and personal confidence as well as experience the performance industry as a young person.
