Become a Course Tutor/Activity Leader

Our volunteer tutors and activity (“Let’s Do”) leaders are the backbone of the organisation. They cover a wide variety of subjects and topics that makes U3A Melbourne City stand out from the crowd.

To be a tutor, you don’t necessarily need to have a background in teaching or lecturing, or be an expert in your field! If you are passionate about or have a strong interest in a particular subject – an interest that you think others might share – then consider offering a class in that special interest. As a Let’s Do leader you enable other members to share a common interest in walking, cycling, movies and so on without necessarily teaching anything.

We can help with the practicalities of getting your group established. For tutors, we provide a comprehensive handbook to guide you through the process of group facilitation.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor or Let’s Do leader, please send an email, outlining your idea for a course/activity, to . Don’t forget to include your full contact details.

Teaching equipment

Most venues have the appropriate equipment for teaching needs and our office also has equipment available for loan, including CD and DVD players, data projectors, laptops, speakers, slide projectors, etc.

Course Coordinators/Let’s Do Coordinator

Our coordinators are available to discuss proposals with prospective tutors and Let’s Do leaders, and provide information about all aspects of running a course or activity with U3A Melbourne City. They also organise course promotion in ebulletins, schedule classes, book rooms and arrange tutors meetings.
