eMentoring Program

The focus of mentoring at Aurora College is to encourage self-confidence and resilience in our students, to broaden their awareness of opportunities, and to enhance their career planning and long-term academic outcomes.

Mentoring is a key feature of the learning experiences available to students at Aurora College through our virtual learning environments.

The  Aurora  e-mentoring program is a flexible model aimed at supporting gifted and talented students in rural and remote communities to:

  • Better understand their skills, values and interests;
  • Explore a variety of academic and career options; and
  • Further develop their social and emotional wellbeing.

Mentoring sessions take place during school hours under teacher supervision.

Students who wish to participate in the mentoring program require parental consent and need to be able to show that they can keep up with their school work.

Further information about our mentoring program is available in the Mentoring Handbook.

If students would like to participate in the mentoring program please complete the online student profile and return the permission note to the Aurora College coordinating office via email.
