Student Mentoring Programs

Earn CECs for student mentoring

AUSactive has launched its new CEC recognition initiative for AUSactive Professionals who participate in Mentorship Programs delivered by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).

A strong support base for students is essential for ensuring a safe practice environment and achieving positive skill development in readiness to commence a career in the health and fitness industry. At the same time, the process of delivering structured mentoring offers valuable career and professional development for the professional mentor.

Why should I become a mentor?

  • For AUSactive Professionals, this initiative offers you:
  • Recognition of your qualification and experience as a professional
  • Opportunities for relationship development with local RTOs and the education sector
  • The chance to ‘give back’ to the next generation of industry professionals
  • The opportunity to diversify how you gain your CECs for professional registration

How will I be recognised?

If you are a Level 2 or 3 AUSactive Professional, you’ll be eligible for Continuing Education Credits when you deliver a CEC approved student mentoring program through an RTO Mentorship program. Credits will be allocated as follows:
  • 1 CEC per 10 hours of placement (this must be with one student)
  • The maximum CECs that can be earned in any given two year registration period is:
    • Level 2 AUSactive Professionals | up to 4 CECs
    • Level 3 AUSactive Professionals | up to 10 CECs

To receive CEC recognition as a mentor, you must:

  • Hold a minimum Level 2 Professional Registration (the registration categories you hold must be relevant to the skills and knowledge you are teaching)
  • Have a minimum of 2 years of experience in the field that you will be teaching
  • Have documentation detailing your mentoring role as part of a CEC approved student mentoring program

Promote your program or event

Registered Training Organisations can apply here to have CECs allocated to their Mentoring Programs.
