Course Leaders

Our Leaders

We generally have around 80-90 Leaders each year, some of whom have been Leaders for many years, others who will offer our members their time and their enthusiasm for a short time. Our Leaders keep our U3A thriving and it’s self-evident that without people volunteering to be Leaders, our organisation could not continue to offer such wonderful opportunities to keep on learning and keep on looking after ourselves whilst enjoying the pleasure of social connection with others.

How do I decide if I want to become a leader?

The first step need only be to make contact with our Course Co-ordinator who helps people develop their ideas into Courses. Making contact DOES NOT commit you to becoming a Leader. It simply gives you a chance to talk.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions which may help you decide to make contact with us.

Your courses run for a year but I’m not sure I can make that commitment. What should I do?

  • Yes, many of our Courses do run for 32 weeks over 4 Terms but many also run for 1 or 2 terms and some run once per month. Our time frames are very flexible and the Course Co-ordinator will work with you to offer your course in the way that best suits you if you decide to become a Leader.

I have an interest about which I’m passionate but is it the kind of thing you’re looking for?

  • Probably, yes. If you have an interest that has become a passion and you’d like to share it, then the chances are that many of our members would love to enrol in your course.

I don’t know if I’m confident enough to be a Leader on my own. Could I share the role with a friend?

  • Yes! Our Couse Co-ordinator will help you work out these details.

Our Course Co-ordinator can be contacted initially via courses@eastlakes.u3anet.org.au

We look forward to hearing from you.
