The ARTIE Academy Tutoring Program sees tertiary education students volunteering their time to attend ARTIE Academy schools with the aim of increasing the confidence and ability of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in their core learning areas.

As outlined in your course profile, students enrolled in EDUC2049 are required to complete field experience.

The ARTIE Academy links with UQ School of Education to provide you with an opportunity to complete the field experience in our schools. As an ARTIE Academy Tutor, your role will be to work in class with primarily Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, assisting them to keep on track with their class work and supporting them through the school term.

UQ Students are required to complete one (1) session per week for ten (10) weeks at their nominated ARTIE Academy School as well as attend the compulsory Professional Development Seminar held on Saturday, 27 July, therefore completing a mandatory eleven (11) sessions total of field experience.

Please be aware of the school term dates below, including any public holidays applicable to your schools. You will be required to make up any missed days due to holidays or illness to complete the course.
