Students from recently arrived refugee backgrounds are extremely driven to do well in school and to rescue their families out of disadvantage and poverty.

Your role will be to help coordinate the Access Program in NSW, whilst working very closely with Anneke, who is the Sydney Program Manager. Your responsibilities include:

  • Overseeing the program to ensure that it is serving the students well.

  • Promotion and Marketing: to ensure that we recruit new tutors and new students regularly and consistently.

  • Interview tutors to ensure that they are passionate, supportive, and care about social justice.

  • Partnerships with relevant stakeholders.

    • Ensure that mentors are well trained.

    • Organise semi-annual training for tutors

    • Ensuring that all mentors have WWCC’s

    • Ensure that all mentors are well supported
