People with degree qualifications or higher are required to help tutor and support adult students from ‘most disadvantaged’ backgrounds who wish to study at university.

The Clemente Fitzroy program (ACU in partnership with CatholicCare) provides a pathway into tertiary education, allowing adult students the opportunity to engage with study, to realise possibilities and achieve their 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, requiring people with empathy, support and an appreciation of the demands of academic study.
