Volunteer learning partners are needed at the Melbourne Campus to mentor and support adult students participating in the Clemente program.
Are you looking for a rewarding opportunity at ACU? People with degree qualifications or higher are required to help mentor and support adult students from disadvantaged backgrounds who have never had the chance to access tertiary study.
The Clemente program (ACU in partnership with CatholicCare) provides a pathway into tertiary education, allowing adult students the opportunity to engage with study for the first time, to help reach their full potential.
The Learning Partner will be matched with an adult student to provide tutoring support, direction and encouragement at weekly sessions, over 13 weeks in Semester 2.
This is a rewarding and challenging role in a proven successful program and requires people with high levels of empathy and support who understand the demands of academic study.
