Tutors - Melbourne University Health Initiative

SWOT Subject Tutor (SWOT Week)
Student Welfare Outreach Team
Background
Purpose
The Melbourne University Health Initiative
(MUHI) is an independent registered Australian
charity run by young people. We are concerned
with local and global health inequality and aim to
make a constructive difference towards the
health issues that continue to confront us all.
MUHI’s Student Welfare Outreach Team (SWOT)
is a high school outreach program that aims to
improve the educational outcomes of students
underrepresented at universities across
Australia. This is predominantly through
academic programs, mentoring support and
community engagement activities. Now in its
19th year of operation, the SWOT program
provides support to hundreds of students each
year and is expanding its outreach activities in
2015.
Each subject team for SWOT VCE Revision Week
will consist of a Subject Manager, Assistant
Lecturers and Tutors. Tutors will collaborate
with their team to prepare and deliver a day of
VCE interactive classroom-based tutorials. These
will aim to give students the opportunity to
practice exam style questions and consolidate
knowledge before their final year 12
examinations.
The SWOT VCE Revision Week provide
volunteers with a unique opportunity to display
their leadership and communication skills and an
opportunity to meet and learn from over 90
other like minded, passionate tutors.
Your chosen subject will run for one day
between the 28th of September to the 2nd of
October, at the University of Melbourne,
Parkville Campus. The week will be consistent
with SWOT’s vision for wider community access
to equitable education and will enable intimate
engagement with students.
