Expression of interest sought for an experienced after-hours casual Study Skills Facilitator to join the Academic Language and Learning Success Program (ALLSP).

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is ranked 43rd in the top 250 universities under 50 years of age in the world and is identified by Times Higher Education as one of an elite global group of rising stars, a new generation of challenger universities quickly rising in world rankings.

The Academic Language and Learning Success Program is part of Student Engagement. This area reports to the Pro Vice-Chancellor Student Engagement & Success portfolio and is responsible for supporting CDU students to achieve in all aspects of student life through well-developed support programs and services in a range of areas, including student academic support (such as the Academic Language and Learning Success Program(ALLSP), PASS and online tutoring services), student engagement, student counselling, disabilities support, off-campus accommodation, and the Children’s University and ASPIRE pathway programmes.

As a Study Skills Facilitator, you will support and advise students using a range of methods, resources and styles to improve students’ academic outcomes and will work in a dynamic environment to develop students’ academic language and learning outcomes in a range of disciplines. The after-hours service is offered Monday-Thursday evenings (5:00pm–9:30 pm) and/or weekends (12:30-5:00pm).

This role will suit an enthusiastic, dynamic and experienced educator who is passionate about developing students’ learning and communication for university and beyond. It will be imperative that you are able to work autonomously with initiative and maintain self-motivation and discipline, and that you can adapt your skills and develop strategies for working with students from diverse groups undertaking (or transitioning to) university study.

You will hold a relevant postgraduate qualification and/or possess equivalent experience and a teaching qualification in adult education, and your employment history will include recent experience providing support for students in Academic Language and Learning, preferably with the ability to use flexible delivery modes to suit student needs.
