Role Title: Research Intern: Integrity Framework
Organisation: WA Recovery College Alliance
Internship Period: Winter (June - July)
The intern will be working closely with the WA Recovery College Principal, Naomi Carter, and also supported by the Education sub-committee of the Recovery College WA Board. There may be interaction with other key stakeholders and WA Recovery College staff as required. The primary function of the role is to undertake a literature review to outline contemporary thinking and evidence to support the domains and elements of the College's Integrity Framework. The aim of the Integrity Framework is to guide co-development of courses, encourage community integration, uphold education standards, ensure quality of courses developed and drive values based behaviours.
Once the literature review is complete, the next step would be to co-design content to develop a comprehensive strategic framework for College educators and external stakeholders. Handover notes are to be prepared for subsequent volunteers should this phase of the project be incomplete at the end of the internship.
The WA Recovery College aims to create opportunities for anyone in the community looking to connect, explore and transform their lives through education. Across the world, Recovery Colleges have demonstrated that an educational approach can be successful in supporting people to overcome barriers including challenges related to mental health, substance use and other life issues. We recognise that our students bring a diverse range of experiences and we acknowledge they are the experts in their own lives, bringing as much to the classroom as our educators. We partner with the local community, prioritising local participation in response to local need.
