Simon Viereck Uncategorized

Mental Health Community Coalition ACT (MHCC ACT), as the Lead Agency of a Consortium, is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) in two management positions to lead a trial of a Recovery College in the ACT.

What is the Recovery College Trial?

The ACT Government has allocated funding for a 2 year trial of a Recovery College in the ACT. The project will be delivered by a Consortium combining the expertise of ACT Mental Health Consumer Network, Carers ACT, Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), ACT Health, and MHCC ACT.

The Trial will run from September 2018 to September 2020. It is anticipated that the Recovery College will open for the first semester in February 2019 with the number of courses gradually increasing over the following semesters. The location of the Canberra Recovery College is likely to be on the Bruce CIT Campus.

What are the positions available?

The Recovery College Manager will be responsible for development and delivery of the project, with a particular focus on governance and administrative structures, venue and equipment, and other operational requirements. The RC Manager will also implement an evaluation framework (in development) and actively seek opportunities for further funding.

The Recovery College Education Manager will be responsible for development and delivery of College curriculum and courses, including development of course co-design and co-production processes and student learning plans. The Education Manager will provide student liaison, and source and oversee student placements and volunteers.

Both positions are time-limited 24 month contracts.
