Mrs Elizabeth Ann Moore

As a non-traditional university entry student Elizabeth has experienced the problems associated with the way in which ‘equity’ entry programs were structured following the Australian Federal Government initiative A Fair Chance For All. Following the result of research into student perceptions of university life and learning, Elizabeth used the research results as a framework for developing the highly successful Unifocus program. Following the success of this program, Daniel McGill and Elizabeth developed the EngFocus program, a vibrant articulation program for non-TEE, Vocational, Educational and Training students.

Daniel McGill

Daniel works with first and final year Engineering students while keeping a focus on high school students making the transition into University. He has also worked extensively on University bridging/access courses for mature-age students.
