U3A Ararat gratefully acknowledges the time and effort all our tutors put into their subjects. We offer those tutors who do not participate in other U3A activities an Honorary Membership which must be signed for insurance purposes.
TUTORS are members of U3A and are unpaid.
Tutors are covered by insurance and everyone is covered by public liability.
Tutors/leaders must sign in and out for their class at the Melbourne Polytechnic Training Centre (MPTC) building in the book on the barrel by the front door at MPTC.
You will be allocated a room in relation to the overall program. There may be occasions when you are asked to change rooms as of course MP has first preference.
Attendance folder is in the U3A library room. Please place your record in this folder at the end of each session. Spare records are in this folder, too. Tutors taking classes at venues other than MPTC should place their records in this folder at end of term. Records are important for many reasons including assessment of numbers and for future funding, and also things like an injury report.
If there are any urgent/safety issues phone Peter Dunn Non urgent issues speak with Program Manager Margaret Burbidge or Secretary Lee Albert
Any changes to times/dates, please contact Program Manager Margaret Burbidge.
U3A box for tea and coffee making is in the kitchen and available for all at any time, free of charge. Ensure the room is left as you found it
Contacting class members – Tutors will need a system of notifying class members of any changes due to illness, absence etc.
