Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS)
The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS) is a vital part of our Learning Development Program. ITAS offers Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students the opportunity to apply for supplementary tuition either one-to-one or in small groups for up to two hours per week.
ITAS is funded under a contract between UTS and the Commonwealth Government administrated by the National Indigenous Australian Agency.

Apply to be an ITAS Tutor
The role of the ITAS tutor is to assist Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students to participate equitably in their chosen field of study. This is achieved by tutors unpacking and clarifying subject content and delivering a customised tutoring program to meet the individual needs of the student(s).
