  • academic excellence

All members of the College share this commitment and hold these aspirations. The College’s academic program is central to the realisation of this vision of a learning community.

Casual Tutor Positions

We welcome expressions of interest in casual tutoring at Ormond College throughout the year and CVs are held in the expectation that opportunities may arise unexpectedly. Whilst most of our tutors are graduates or teachers with contemporary experience of courses offered by the University of Melbourne, we also consider applications from graduates working outside the University and from non-graduates with proven teaching experience and established knowledge and skills in a particular field.

Pay & Conditions

Tutors are paid on an hourly basis for all scheduled tutorials and individual consultations. Tutors are also expected to participate in the Ormond tutors’ community of practice, through which tutors share their expertise and discuss their experiences in order to improve the quality of teaching at Ormond.

For information about conditions, pay, workload, expectations and training, please contact the Learning & Community Office on T: 61 3 9344 1126.
