As a tutor your responsibilities include preparing and delivering tutorials or studio classes during the teaching period, in each subject in which you are tutoring. You may also be required to contribute to the marking of all assessments and the collation of results. You may need to attend 1-2 hour subject meetings throughout the semester, as required as well as tutor briefing before the start of the semester.
The University of Melbourne is a child safe organisation. You may be required to hold a valid Working with Children Check as a condition of employment in this role.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate appropriate academic background: typically we would expect an undergraduate degree with studies in the appropriate fields, plus suitable postgraduate qualifications or current admission in a postgraduate course in those fields. Applicants must demonstrate good organisation, communication and presentation skills. Professional experience in the field is also encouraged.
Your subject preference may be used by the assessors when making their selection. Please contact the subject coordinator to discuss your preference to teach in the subjects you are applying for, if you are concerned that the preference may disadvantage you.
If you would like to find out more about the specific skills required to teach in a subject or the subject content, please consult the subject entry in the University Handbook or contact the subject coordinator directly.
Current pay scales for casual tutors can be found here.
Before you apply
When available, please check tutorial/studio class times for the specific subject for which you intend to submit an application, to see if they match your availability. You can search the published class times for specific subjects in the University timetable. Alternatively, you can also click on the ‘View timetable’ link in the specific subject Handbook entry.
The University is currently preparing for possible scenarios for Semester 2, 2020, including:
- Commencement of Semester 2 fully online for all students if necessary
- A gradual resumption of some face-to-face teaching, potentially from the beginning of the semester, should the government sufficiently relax physical distancing requirements. This resumption would likely involve a combination of face-to-face and online teaching (mixed-mode delivery)
- Full online teaching and assessment arrangements for all of Semester 2, 2020 where necessary.
All applicants for sessional positions in ABP for semester 2, 2020 should be prepared to work under any of the above scenarios.
