About the Centre of Enabling Pathways

Aspiration, Inclusion and Opportunity – Providing Access to Higher Education


The flagship program for the Centre of Enabling Pathways is the UniReady Enabling Program. The UniReady Program is an open-access pathway that provides an alternate eligibility pathway to university for students who successfully complete the program. Students who come via this pathway do not have entry qualifications and come with a range of educational backgrounds. The program is also delivered via OUA and UniReady in Schools to over 3000 students a year. The course is offered online and internal and is one semester long when studied full-time. It runs over 2 semesters and includes a small summer course. OUA is run over 4 study periods and UniReady in Schools run individual course deliveries as required.

Your new role

The role of this position is to act as the main point of contact for all inquiries related to current and prospective students who are seeking information about the Centre of Enabling Pathways. The enquiries can range from applying for the program, information on pathways to undergraduate courses to enrolling for units, submitting assessment extensions, and finally transitioning into a Curtin undergraduate course. The position is part of the UniReady students’ lifecycle and experience at Curtin. This involves handling a high volume of interactions through various channels such as face-to-face, phone calls, and a customer relationship management system. Furthermore, the individual in this position is responsible for updating and maintaining records, processing and producing official documentation, and performing any associated administrative tasks as required.

  • Maintain updated knowledge on all Curtin courses, including entry requirements, applications, enrolment, scholarships, fees, timetable, exams, and assessment extensions to enable pathways.
  • Refer complex enquiries regarding alternative pathway options for applicants who do not meet automatic admission criteria to the central admissions area.
  • Provide a quality customer service to all customers by telephone, email, and face-to-face i.e. answering queries, and supporting customers, ensuring they are provided with correct, consistent and timely advice.
  • Maintain accurate records in the customer relationship management system (CRM) and student management system.
  • Provide advice and support to students to manage their own offer, enrolment and class registration using student self-management facilities.
You will ideally have:
  • Strong commitment to customer service and helping individuals achieve their educational goals.
  • A personable and friendly disposition, with demonstrated experience in delivering high quality customer service.
  • Great organisational skills and attention to detail.
  • Proven ability to interpret and apply your expertise in line with policy, procedures and guidelines.
  • Accuracy in data entry, information retrieval and excellent computer skills.
  • No reservations about being part of a supportive team which thrives on meeting goals and deadlines.
  • Working With Children Check (or willing to obtain)
  • Experience in student-related customer services or similar
