Education Officer Role
The Education Officer promotes excellence in education at Massey Auckland by championing the class advocates programme, working alongside education services, and providing feedback to national educational boards.
Students considering this position will need to commit to a minimum of 8 hours a week for their term of office on Association related activity including negotiated regular office hours.
An honorarium of up to $3,500 gross is associated with this position. (This is the pro-rated amount for the balance of the term of office). A full role description is below.
"I've loved having the opportunity to advocate for students on all education related issues, gathering and providing student feedback to the boards I sit on and in response to Massey's proposed changes. Being able to ensure that student voice is heard, and to influence both changes within Massey and the ASA, is so rewarding. I've learned so much about governance in this unique role and have also really enjoyed meeting a range of people, from those working in other associations, the staff in Massey's own services such as the Teaching and Learning and the Chaplaincy Centres, and of course other students!", 2020 Education Executive, Sophie Stone
