Role

The classroom teacher classification comprises two salary ranges- range 1 and range 2.  The primary focus of the classroom teacher is on the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes.  The classroom teacher engages in critical reflection and inquiry in order to improve knowledge and skills to effectively engage students and improve their learning. 

As the classroom teacher gains experience his or her contribution to the school program beyond the classroom increases. All classroom teachers may be required to undertake other duties in addition to their rostered teaching duties provided the responsibility is appropriate to the salary range, qualifications, training and experience of the teacher.


Classroom teacher Range 2
Range 2 classroom teachers play a significant role in assisting the school to improve student performance and educational outcomes determined by the school strategic plan and state-wide priorities and contributing to the development and implementation of school policies and priorities.

A critical component of this work will focus on increasing the knowledge base of staff within their school about student learning and high quality instruction to assist their school to define quality teacher practice.

Range 2 classroom teachers will be expected to:
- Have the content knowledge and pedagogical practice to meet the diverse needs of all students
- Model exemplary classroom practice and mentor/coach other teachers in the school to engage in critical reflection of their practice and to support staff to expand their capacity
- Provide expert advice about the content, processes and strategies that will shape individual and school professional learning
- Supervise and train one or more student teachers
- Assist staff to use student data to inform teaching approaches that enable targets related to improving student learning outcomes to be achieved.


Classroom teacher Range 1
The primary focus of the range 1 classroom teacher is on further developing skills and competencies to become an effective classroom practitioner with structured support and guidance from teachers at higher levels and the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes. These teachers teach a range of students/classes and are accountable for the effective delivery of their programs.  Range 1 classroom teachers are skilled teachers who operate under general direction within clear guidelines following established work practices and documented priorities and may have responsibility for the supervision and training of one or more student teachers.

At range 1, teachers participate in the development of school policies and programs and assist in the implementation of school priorities. 
The focus of a range 1 classroom teacher is on classroom management, subject content and teaching practice.  New entrants to the teaching profession in their initial teaching years receive structured support, mentoring and guidance from teachers at higher levels.

Under guidance, new entrants to the teaching profession will plan and teach student groups in one or more subjects and are expected to participate in induction programs and other professional learning activities that are designed to ensure the integration of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy across the school.

Teachers at range 1 are responsible for teaching their own classes and may also assist and participate in policy development, project teams and the organisation of co-curricula activities.

  • Direct teaching of groups of students and individual students;

Location Profile

Mansfield Secondary College, is a small, rural Victorian school, close to Mt Buller and the snow fields, which offers a wide range of education and training programs to support our students as they transition into adulthood.

Mansfield community is characterised by people with a constructive and supportive attitude. Tourism and our pristine environment drive our economy, leading to a vibrant community with a strong arts, environment and cultural focus. Mansfield is one of the fastest growing shires in the country.

COLLEGE VISION: A dynamic learning environment where the whole community takes responsibility in preparing for the future.

COLLEGE VALUES: The College is committed to a Positive Behaviours program, which aims to encourage student performance and lift engagement by explicitly teaching desired behaviours and using all opportunities to reward student efforts and performance. The program underpins an evolution of a school culture which is based on mutual respect.

CURRICULUM: The College is responsive to the Victorian Curriculum 7-10. Year 7 and 8 students study a common curriculum, both supporting key skill development and enabling exploration of a range of discipline areas. To aid transition, experienced staff work with students to develop student’s knowledge and skills and to help build social capabilities in a new environment. Year 7 and 8 is about consolidation.

Year 9 and 10 students access core units across Science, English, Mathematics and Humanities. A breadth of subject electives, beyond the core units, enables students to engage with a range of different learning and leadership opportunities, working to extend and develop in their areas of passion. Middle school is about exploration.

Senior students from Years 10 to 12 can elect alternative pathways by selecting from a broad range of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) units, or undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). The College is recognised for successfully linking these studies to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Australian School Based Apprenticeship programs. Senior school is about narrowing and focusing effort, with excellence and progression a constant focus.

COLLEGE TEACHERS AND STAFF: The relatively small size of the College enables staff to extend additional support to individual students and to create an enriched learning environment. Counselling and support is provided for students from a range of professionals including Year Level Co-ordinators, social workers, psychologists and a school nurse.

STRATEGIC PLAN: The College Strategic Plan aims to improve student learning and engagement, teacher education and facilities. The Strategic Plan is available at the College website.

FACILITIES: In February 2022 the College opened a new STEAM building and a community sports precinct providing high quality sporting facilities for our students as well as a service to the Mansfield Community. Other recently built facilities include Language, Hospitality and Music Centres. The indigenous Bagungga Garden was created by our 2019
School for Student Leadership’s students and provides an outdoor classroom setting. Students with a disability are supported with a purpose-built low-sensory space to enable students to re-charge and re-engage.
