Indigenous Tailored Academic Program (ITAP)

Are you passionate about helping people and giving back to the UOW community? We are looking for someone like you!

The Indigenous Tailored Academic Program (ITAP) is an academic support initiative by Woolyungah Indigenous Centre (WIC) and aims to improve educational outcomes for Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students studying at UOW. The principal goal of ITAP is to explicitly connect Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students with the supports most appropriate to their individual needs and moves away from a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. These supports assist in enabling students to participate equitably and compete at the level of their peers in their chosen program of study. A core part of this program is the offer of one-on-one tutoring whilst students are enrolled at UOW. We have a number of students studying a diverse range of degrees who require a tutor to help them reach their goals. Students are eligible to receive 2 hours of tutoring per subject per week. When recruiting tutors we look for;

  • A passion to help Indigenous students
  • Time and flexibility to tutor
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to exercise judgment effectively
  • At least a high credit , distinction or high distinction average in their studies
  • The ability to build rapport

The ITAP Tutor role is a paid position. If you can see yourself contributing positively to a student’s journey by sharing your own, please email itas-wic@uow.edu.au for more information.
