This week I attended an evening event to recognise and thank the 2010 Victoria University Campus Coaches. These coaches support and help new students during their first few weeks at Uni. All part of a superb orientation programme. The 90 coaches helped 950 new students. A job well done and along the way they developed attributes today’s employers are looking for. They were trained fully and their involvement with the programme enhanced their communication, interpersonal, leadership, teamwork, initiative and problem solving skills.

Some of the Campus Coaches will also be a part of the Victoria Plus Award programme where the points they gain from this student support work goes towards their activities component.

Maybe you would like to apply to be a Campus Coach for next year -look out for the job advertisement in November on CareerHub. I have talked to the Coaches about the role and they are all really positive and have learnt heaps.
