About the job

The Aboriginal Pathway Program is an 18 month pathway program that supports students with no previous qualifications for university study. The program is open to all people who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and can lead to entry into a university degree at the University of South Australia.

The AP program builds the skills students need to study successfully at a tertiary level. All students undertake general courses to develop their tertiary learning, computing and academic literacy skills. As an AP Metropolitan Tutor, you will provide high quality teaching and learning experiences for students enrolled into the AP program.

*Applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged.

Skills and Experience

You will have relevant tertiary qualifications, together with demonstrated ability and experience in using a range of contemporary approaches to deliver teaching materials, and implement grade moderation and student consultation. A sound understanding of the needs of Aboriginal students undertaking enabling courses, an understanding of the challenges associated with geographically distributed teams, and an ability to adopt a problem-solving approach to effective program delivery are also essential requirements of the position.
