Quant & Econ PASS Leader applications 2019

The School of Economics is seeking Leaders for the Peer Assisted Support Scheme (PASS) in 2019.

Applications are now open for positions as:

  1. Quant PASS leaders
  2. Econ PASS leaders

Quant PASS Leaders

Quant PASS leaders will run study support groups in one or more of these courses:

  • ECON1203 Business and Economic Statistics (BES)
  • ECON1202 Quantitative Analysis for Business and Economics (QABE)
  • ECON2206 Introductory Econometrics
  • ECON5257 Introductory Statistics and Data Analysis
  • COMM5005 Quantitative Methods for Business
  • COMM5011 Data Analysis for Business

The postgraduate courses have similar content to the undergraduate ones. Hours are likely to vary over the three terms as only ECON1203 is offered in Term 2. Applicants for Quant PASS positions are required to have gained a grade of at least 75 in ECON1203 and any other undergraduate course for which they wish to be considered no later than the end of semester 2 2018. Approximately 9 new leaders are required.

Econ PASS leaders

Econ PASS leaders will run study groups in either:

  • ECON1101 Microeconomics 1 or
  • ECON1102 Macroeconomics 1 

Hours may vary over the three terms as ECON1102 is only offered in Terms 1 and 2, 2019. Students with results of at least 75 in these courses by the end of semester 2 2018 are eligible to apply. Approximately 5 new leaders are required.

Interviews and application process

Interviews for leader positions will be held on Thursday 22 November or Friday 23 November, 2018. Interviewees will be contacted by phone or email as soon as possible after the closing date (November 11) to arrange a suitable time. 

Successful applicants must be available to take part in training on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 February 2019.  Once Term 1 begins leaders will be required to attend a regular weekly meeting and to prepare for and run one or more weekly study groups.  PASS requires both commitment from leaders and enough flexibility in their timetables to organise meeting and class times.  This flexibility is difficult to achieve for those who have more than one day of work arranged in addition to their PASS and study commitments.  We are not able to consider those who work for two or more whole weekdays per week.
