Antipodeans Abroad would like to invite students to participate in valuable volunteer placements in India or South Africa during their holidays. Antipodeans’ UniBreak Program offers students 4-week volunteer placements where they can gain meaningful personal and professional experience abroad. South Africa – Learn responsible business & work with disadvantaged students Students can volunteer their time in the Mandela Park Township on the outskirts of Cape Town. Depending on students interests and experience they can be involved in teaching and care work projects with a locally run NGO for disadvantaged children or work with a socially responsible business focussing on women’s empowerment. This placement builds lasting relationships with the community and offers invaluable insight into South Africa’s culture and history. India – Teach children in tribal villages Students can help improve the lives of children by helping teach in local tribal villages surrounding Udaipur. Many schools struggle from a lack of staff and resources, with sometimes up to 40 children in each class. Student’s time will be spent assisting local teachers with English and maths lessons, while providing individual care for the children. Places are limited. Applications close 24 April 2015 for June/July holiday projects. Students can obtain further information via the following: • Register for Info Night • Sign up for further information • Apply online Download 2015 project fact sheet I have included information on why Antipodeans Abroad placements have a very strong reputation within Australian universities at the end of this email along with two testimonials from Lecturers who have had direct experience with the program. Students can also contact me at nikola@antipodeans.com.au for further information. With thanks for your assistance. Warm regards, Nikola Turnbull UniBreak Program Manager Why Antipodeans Abroad • Antipodeans Abroad has been offering tertiary and high school students international work and volunteer projects for over 23 years. • Our UniBreak program provides students real world skills and experience – all while genuinely benefiting local communities abroad. • We take care of all placement planning and prepare students with training workshops before they depart. • We are experts in safety and risk management and provide students with 24 hour back up while they are away. • Our experienced local In-Country Partners ensure that placements run smoothly and are beneficial and sustainable for the local community. ‘For any individual or organisation contemplating any sort of study tour or UniBreak – be it educational or volunteering, I cannot speak highly enough of Antipodeans and what they can offer.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR ‘BRING YOUR BILLS’ DAYS VOLUNTEERS Footscray Community Legal Centre ('FCLC') is looking for student volunteers to assist with the running of our next Bring Your Bills ('BYB') Day in Braybrook. Date: Thursday 26 March 2015 Time: 10:30am to 4:30pm (Volunteers need to arrive at 10:00am to assist with setting up etc. and would be expected to stay after the event until 5:00pm or so to assist with packing down) Venue: Braybrook Community Hub, 107 Churchill Avenue, Braybrook, VIC 3019 Volunteers would be required to attend a brief training session at FCLC (72 Buckley St, Footscray) on Tuesday 24 March 2015 at 2:30 to 4:30pm. FCLC hopes to run other BYB days; one during each April, May and June. Although the exact dates are yet to be set, ideally volunteers would express an interest in committing to volunteering at the other dates, pending no clashes with university or other commitments. BACKGROUND Footscray Community Legal Centre (‘FCLC’) provides legal and financial counselling services to people who live, work or study in the City of Maribyrnong. FCLC targets and works extensively with refugee and new settler communities in the West, and runs a range of community legal education (‘CLE’) programs. As a result of FCLC’s casework and feedback from CLE programs, it was identified that many people do not understand their basic consumer rights with regard to the provision of energy, water and telecommunications services. It was also apparent that many people are not aware of the complaint resolution structures available to them, such as the Energy and Water Ombudsman. Those that were aware of the structures expressed that they would be too afraid to contact their energy retailer or an ombudsman etc. for fear of repercussions. It was concluded that a service was needed that could meet and address the needs of such people in a tailored ‘one stop shop’ information day. The Bring Your Bills (‘BYB’) initiative was born. BYB days bring together various communities, government and dispute resolution agencies at a central location for one business day. We are expecting representatives from the Energy and Water Ombudsman Victoria (EWOV), City West Water, The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO), Environment Victoria, Centrelink, Department of Justice- Sheriff’s Office and others. ABOUT THE ROLE Volunteers will be the first point of contact for clients on the day. They will assist with ushering of clients, and undertake ‘intake interviews’ including client’s details and determining which agency/ies they need to see for advice. Clients may require the use of an on-site or telephone interpreter which the volunteer will organise. This will be a great opportunity for students to meet representatives from ombudsman schemes and government agencies, to be involved in their community and to gain experience dealing with people from a range of backgrounds. Successful involvement in the day will also be a great resume/CV item; FCLC will be happy to act as a reference for future job applications. Volunteers will be provided with tea, coffee, snacks and lunch. HOW TO APPLY Email your CV/resume to becky@footscrayclc.org.au along with a brief statement in the body of the email as to why you think you would be suited for this role and whether or not you would be able to volunteer at future BYB days pending the actual dates. Please also include your contact details and your availability for a brief telephone interview on Thursday 19 March 2015. QUESTIONS/QUERIES Please email any questions or queries about the role to becky@footscrayclc.org.au Due to the volume of calls that FCLC experiences on a day to day basis from potential clients, we ask that you do not call but instead email as above. APPLICATIONS CLOSE WEDNESDAY 18 MARCH 2015 at 11:59PM Su Robertson Lecturer I Clinical Programs Associate, Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing College of Law and Justice Victoria University Room RO309, City Queen Campus Phone 61 3 9919 1823

A message on plagiarism from the Dean, Professor Andrew Clarke: Students are reminded that plagiarism in all its forms will not be accepted in the University or College of Law and Justice. Plagiarism is a form of student academic misconduct which can have serious consequences for all students, but particularly law students, who are required to disclose any matters relating to student misconduct prior to admission as a lawyer. Do not be tempted to plagiarise or engage in any form of student misconduct. If you are struggling with your studies a number of support mechanisms are available to you. Q: What is plagiarism? A: Plagiarism includes (but is not limited to) insufficient referencing and insufficient acknowledgement of the work of another; ‘cut and pastes’ from the internet or other sources; collaboration (where the task is an individual one); collusion; copying the work of others including past and present students and submitting work produced by another (including the use of Australian or international website services offering to prepare university assignments). Q: How is plagiarism detected? A: Staff detect plagiarism in a number of ways, including using turnitin software, being alert to inconsistencies in writing style in a students work, cross marking assessment tasks across different tute groups, alerts from staff members in other units and having a strong familiarity with the relevant materials connected to each assessment task they set. Q: What will happen if a staff member suspect’s plagiarism may have occurred? A: As a first step, the matter will be referred to me as the Dean of the College of Law & Justice for review in accordance with the Student Misconduct Regulations. A final point: Students are reminded that with each assignment they submit, they are required to sign a cover sheet which declares that they have not plagiarised the work of others nor participated in collusion and have properly acknowledged the work of others by way of proper referencing. Like all signed declarations, this should be read very carefully and taken seriously.
