The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is again seeking expressions of interest from O&M specialists to work as O&M techniques tutors on the Graduate Diploma of Orientation and Mobility Course in 2024.

Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest in working on the O&M Techniques student intensives in 2023 – we had a smaller group of students in 2023 and we did not require all offers to assist but we value your interest in contributing to the future of our profession and for those who did assist we value the support you gave us and hope you enjoyed the experience.

In 2024 the O&M program will run 2 separate Intensives on the UNSW campus in Sydney (Kensington), the first 19th Feb – 1st March and the second 20th May – 7th June.  We are seeking expressions of interest from O&M specialists who may be interested in working for a small part of this time or even across the entire period of one or both intensives.
