What is ITAS?
ITAS is an academic initiative of the Commonwealth Department of Industry,
Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE).
The program aims to:
• improve academic outcomes for all Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
students by providing supplementary tuition,
• supplement normal teaching efforts and cannot be used to substitute or replace
them,
• accelerate educational outcomes for Indigenous Australians beyond those which
could reasonably be expected from the provider’s core resources alone.
How do Tutors register for ITAS?
• You can go to the SIAS website and print off a ITAS Tutor
Application pack

• You can respond to advertisements placed in the employment
section of the Cairns Post or the Townsville Daily Bulletin
• Be qualified, either through formal education or relevant
experience, to be eligible to deliver tutoring under ITAS TT. In line
with other universities this means the tutor must have a Grade
Point Average (GPA) of 5.0 or above or a result of Credit (65%-74%)
or above in the subject the tutor will be providing tuition for.
• Once completed you need to forward this information to the ITAS
Coordinator/ITAS Officer in Townsville or Cairns
