Academic mentoring

High school students receiving academic mentoringCurtin AHEAD’s Academic Mentor program supplies public secondary and primary schools, and community organisations, with skilled pre-service educators and mentors who have a passion for working with students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Select Curtin University students become Academic Mentors after completing compulsory training and clearances. For up to five hours a week, the Academic Mentors come onto the school campus and give individual students academic tutoring or more general academic classroom support in specific subject areas.

Curtin AHEAD provides this support at no cost to partner schools or community organisations.

To find out more about the program, contact Charles Flodin, AHEAD in Schools Program Coordinator.
