HEO3 – Paid Mentor Position (Casual Contract, 12 months)
Under routine supervision, the Mentor will provide support for students who are experiencing difficulties with their studies due to the impact of their disability. The type and extent of support will vary from student to student but may include providing assistance in orientating students to university such as assisting with systems, wayfinding, organisation skills and liaising with academic staff. Mentors will firstly meet with the student and the Disability Advisor but will then work one on one with the student as required.
