Academic Support Officer

Aurora Education Foundation
  • Unique Indigenous education program in progressive for-purpose organisation
  • Work closely program participants
  • Based at St Catherine’s College, Crawley

At Aurora, our goal is for every Indigenous student to access the right educational opportunities so they realise their academic potential. For some, that’s completing Year 12 and for others, that’s a PhD from Harvard. We’re aiming to shift the paradigm about what is possible for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians; starting with students in Year 8 with our high school program, all the way through to post-graduate studies at international universities with our scholarships program. Our programs are long-term, independently evaluated and outcome driven. We don’t see ourselves as a ‘quick fix’ to these complex issues and the results show that our programs work – investing in potential to inspire excellence and transform lives.

Our High School Program works with Indigenous students from Year 8 and until Year 13. We provide academic enrichment through our school holiday camps, wrap-around support and ongoing contact and engagement between camps. The Program focuses not just on the academic side of things but also cultural identity, and places Aboriginal ways of learning at its core.

This role plays a critical part in the wraparound, academic support that our students receive. In this role, you will establish systems and processes to track how our students are doing, organise additional supports (such as tutoring, computers, etc) and administer our Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS is critical for our data collection and analysis, which in turn, will help determine the right supports and interventions for our students.

This is a role for someone who is passionate about the role that education can play in achieving social justice and enhanced life outcomes. To succeed, you will have strong administrative and organisational skills, you will be great with technology, bring a good analytical bent to your work and genuinely enjoy collaborating with your team members. You will also be comfortable dealing with a range of external stakeholders including our students and their families, teachers, and providers of support services.

Our programs have achieved unparalleled success and this is an opportunity for you to be part of that narrative of excellence. We offer a values-driven, team environment, where we are each committed to the purpose of our organisation. You will be well-supported with regular professional development activities and will be welcomed into a collegiate team. In addition to a competitive salary, you will have immediate access to salary packaging.

To be Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander is a genuine occupational requirement for this position under Clause 50 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (WA).
