About the Role

COTA Queensland (Council on the Ageing) has successfully run Community Education programs with seniors groups for two decades, delivering information and behaviour change sessions that provide accurate, independent and relevant resources to meet the needs of older Queenslanders.

• Project Development: Work with the COTA Community Education team, including the peer educators, as well as with external project partners to co-design and pilot interactive informative sessions for seniors and accompanying information and referral resources.
• Project Implementation: Work with peer educators to implement the new education sessions, including organising and running training workshops.
• Monitoring and Evaluation: Monitor implementation of the project plans and take a leading role in project evaluation, including writing of final reports.
• Volunteer Support: Provide support and training to COTA Queensland peer educators in relation to the project.
• Collaboration: Build on and support other COTA Queensland activities as required.
