Become a facilitator

Could you be the next UniPASS facilitator? Read on and see what we're looking for.

What facilitators say

"Being able to participate in UniPASS was a great opportunity for me. It was very rewarding to work with first year students and see them grow over the semester, both in their subject knowledge and their relationships with one another and with me. I was able to revise my own understanding of the content while assisting others.

I feel like I have developed some very relevant work skills including facilitation, communication, organisation and time management. I very much enjoyed being part of the program."

- Rachel, Former Peer Facilitator

What does it take to become a UniPASS facilitator?

We're looking for you if you:

  1. will be in the 2nd to 4th year of your course
  2. have a credit average across your course
  3. achieved a distinction or above in the relevant UniPASS subject
  4. possess good communication and interpersonal skills
  5. are available to attend training the week prior to Orientation, and facilitate at least 1 UniPASS session for 11 to 12 weeks of the semester, and
  6. are available to attend week 1 lectures (and other weeks where necessary) to promote the program.

Why should I apply?

Becoming a UniPASS facilitator is more than just a job (but yes, you do get paid!).

  1. Enhance your knowledge and understanding of subject matter.
  2. Develop your communication, public speaking, leadership and teamwork skills.
  3. Network with Curtin staff.

Facilitators are paid casual roles at Curtin, and require a high level of training and commitment. Initial training and occasional UniPASS volunteering opportunities are unpaid, so facilitators are also eligible for the Curtin Extra Certificate.

Past facilitators have also commented on how their experience as a facilitator helped them get a job with their employer of choice after graduation.

How to apply

To apply, send the following documents to

  1. Brief resume (max 2 pages) including details of your university and community involvement and all work experience to date.
  2. One page cover letter detailing the personal qualities you feel you bring to the role and the program as a whole.
  3. A copy of your academic record to date.

Applicants will be shortlisted based on their resume, cover letter and academic record, with each being given equal weighting. If you are successful in gaining an interview, you'll need to demonstrate a good understanding of the challenges faced by new undergraduate students and will also need to be able to obtain a police clearance.
