Role

This position does not generally require attendance during school holiday periods unless specifically requested by and agreed with the Principal.

An education support class position at this range will perform tasks that are carried out in accordance with guidelines, accepted practice, and school policy under supervision and direction. This may include coordination of other education support class staff within the work area or educational program.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students but must not include duties of a teacher as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor. Supervision of students can be required individually or in groups up to 4 in controlled circumstances and where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Certification and/or qualifications of up to three years can be required at this level (noting that Registered Nurse is not included at this level, the first level for which is Level 1 range 3).

A role at this range may include:

  • Specific support tasks to achieve outcomes. Typically, this will involve accountability for a single function, (e.g. ensuring data is properly maintained) or the co-ordination of a work area under the direction of the principal or a manager.
  • Assisting teachers, within an educational program, by undertaking specific support tasks or the coordination of the support function.
  • Supervised health and wellbeing support tasks, medical intervention support tasks, or other specialised student/teacher support roles (e.g. enrolled nurses performing the role as described in schedule 3). These roles require specific qualifications and/or training, including roles where further training must be undertaken from time to time. The role is for a specific purpose, for which there will be direct accountability as opposed to support roles that are carried out by a range of staff performing routine tasks under direction.
  • Technical tasks that require a sound knowledge of basic technical and/or scientific principles that are used to develop and adapt work methods and make judgements where there are clear guidelines and limited options. Routine technical support in libraries, science, and information technology would be typical examples.

An education support class position at this range commencing at the base will initially be limited to undertaking routine tasks that are carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established, and direction is readily available. Subject to any specific qualification and/or training requirement, an education support class employee employed in this range may be progressively required to undertake coordination, specialised student/teacher support tasks, or technical tasks as experience in the role is gained.

Responsibilities

The responsibilities of this position will be:

  • Deliver administrative services within the school.
  • Maintain school's records system, including computerised student, staff and school records.
  • Manage client reception.
  • Deliver exemplary customer service and prepare written communcation of a professional standard.
  • Ensure knowledge of College events queries can be addressed to a high level.
  • Answer incoming calls to the College and refer them to the appropriate staff member.
  • Assist with communication between parents, students, teachers, other staff and members of the wider community.
  • Ensure work areas and the reception spaces are maintained in a clean, safe and ready to use condition.
  • First Aid - apply first aid to students and staff.  Maintain first aid room and supplies.  Maintain accurate first aid records and follow College and Department policies and procedures.  
  • Filing and archiving.
  • Administer functions as assigned, such as facilities hire, accounts payable and finance support, camps and excursion support, student records (International Student Program and Local students) enrolment support, marketing support, College event support, accounts receivable.
  • Provide general administrative, finance and HR support to the Business Manager.
  • Utilise College platforms correctly such as Compass, Teams and CASES21.
  • Administer and maintain Excel spreadsheets to support assigned duties.
  • Other general and administrative duties as directed by the Business Manager or Principal Team.
