Indigenous Tailored Academic Program (ITAP)

WIC - Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS) banner image

ITAP is an academic support initiative of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C), which aims to improve educational outcomes for Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students. Tutors are recruited and appointed to eligible students by Woolyungah Indigenous Centre (WIC). In delivering the ITAP program, WIC follows guidelines set out in our funding agreement with PM&C.

The principal goal of ITAP is to explicitly connect Australian 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 enable students to participate equitably and compete at the level of their peers in their chosen program of study.

At WIC, we value the role of our tutors and strive to employ highly qualified tutors for our students.
