Student Mentoring and Tutoring

Exciting news ahead... 2015 will see the official refresh and renewal of Durack's existing Student Mentoring and Tutoring program.

WHAT IS IT?

Dedicated support of our students registered with disabilities and those of Aboriginal descent requiring additional assistance to complete their studies.

HOW DID PEOPLE FIND OUT?

A series of print ads and social media ads were created to gather expressions of interest from the local community. 

WHERE TO FROM HERE?

In early May we received approximately 20 community members for a special orientation session at our Student Services Hub in X Block at our Geraldton Campus.

These participants were briefed on the roles and responsibilities of tutors and mentors for our students.

We are planning to work closely with students, lecturers, community agencies and the tutors/mentors to find the best match, and hence the best outcome for our students.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

Mentors: provide in class support
Tutors: provide one on one out of class support

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?

If you attend Durack as a student, or are a family member of friend of a Durack student who is Aboriginal, or has a disability (remember some disabilities are not so obvious such as depression, poor reading writing skills, dyslexia etc…)... then take up the offer of this extra support.

WHO DO I CONTACT?

Dale Forsyth in Client Services 9956 6124 or email client.services@durack.edu.au

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

We are actively engaging in advertising to promote this program, however we also encourage you to be an ambassador for the program and talk to your family and friends if they are students at Durack and require support..

REMEMBER…

We provide training pathways to great opportunities and better futures… and it starts right here!
