The Admissions and Registration Coordinator is a pivotal member of the Student Services Division of the Indigenous Innovation Institute. The Admissions and Registration Coordinator works closely with the Student Life and Well-being Coordinator, the Career Pathways and Placement Coordinator, and reports directly to the Student Services Manager.
The Admissions and Registration Coordinator plays a critical role as the first point of contact for prospective students looking to apply for Technology Council tech training courses, which are designed for Indigenous adult learners interested in careers in the tech and innovation sectors. The ARC is responsible for interviewing students, and has an advisory role in aligning their incoming skills and interests with the best program fit. With online training being our new reality, the Admissions and Registration Coordinator conducts all processes virtually and sets students up with the information they need to succeed in this environment.
This role suits a motivated and enthusiastic individual to support the optimization and implementation of our admissions and registration processes, with a view to scaling up as the Institute grows and develops. This includes the streamlining of administrative work, including form completion and maintenance of student records, and other administrative improvements.
The Admissions and Registration Coordinator also plays a supporting role in the recruitment of students. The ARC works closely with the Career Pathways and Placement Coordinator on ensuring best fit for students and programs in terms of skills development. The ARC is also responsible for all formal student communications regarding the admissions process.
