Faculty Administration Manager   

Who is Tabor: We are a Private Higher Education Provider, providing tertiary education with a Christian perspective within a more personal learning community.  We are not only passionate about our students’ academic growth but also their personal and spiritual growth. Our Faculties include Ministry Practice, Humanities and Social Sciences and Education. At Tabor we focus on the community professions, offering undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and courses that equip teachers, counsellors, youth workers, pastors and ministry workers, musicians and creative writers.

At Tabor we are unashamedly Christian and strive to be personal and user-friendly in our engagement with students and stakeholders.  All that we are and do is infused by a Christian ethos that recognises spiritual formation as essential to flourishing in life and work.

Tabor was founded in 1979 and has grown to a dynamic and vibrant tertiary education centre located in Adelaide.  The Millswood campus is only five minutes south of the city, in a beautiful setting with plenty of free parking and access via public transport.
