Role

The position encompasses the responsibilities of Careers Leader:

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services. The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.

Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved. This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy.  Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3.  Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility.  Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases.  Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.

This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years.  Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered.  Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.  Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employees position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Responsibilities

Provide support and present at information evenings, for both parents and students, including year level camps and activities.

Develop cooperative relationships with staff, students, families, the wider community and other key stakeholders.

File notes, records and diary entries are up to date and detailed as directed by the college.

Support and encourage past students to support alumni initiative.

Support and track the successful transition to further education and employment and other destination data reports accurately to remain compliant with DET mandated requirements.

Monitor and lead the completion of MIPS, Career Action Plans, Course Counselling, Mock Job Interviews, VTAC, SEAS, Scholarships and Year 12 interviews to ascertain pathway intentions and collaborate with key stakeholders.

Attend professional development programs, including connecting with and developing networks to upskill knowledge in career and pathway programs - Alumni, VET clusters etc.

Liaise with key personnel ot organise, implement and participate actively in various Careers curriculum programs Years 7-12.

Maintain a current understanding of programs and support services suited to "at risk" students.

Work collaboratively with the key stakeholders to support student work placements, VET studies, Alumni participation and other opportunities.

Administrative duties related to the implementation and running of the College's Work Experience program.

Complete one on one careers counselling sessions with students and support careers related materials they may need eg resumes.

As required provide relevant statistics to the school and DET.

Other duties as required within the ES1-3 classification and award.

Location Profile

Melbourne Girls' College (MGC) was established in 1994 on the banks of the Yarra River in Richmond, Victoria and is a leader in innovative girls' education. It provides enrolment opportunities for local, wider-Melbourne and international students to study inquiry and trans-disciplinary units in Years 7-9 followed by a large number of Year 10, VCE and VET subjects in the senior years.

The College is constantly evolving programs and learning schedules to ensure students are future-ready with an emphasis on persistence, team work, respect for diversity and personal best. Our 1400 students are taught and nurtured by excellent staff, parents, peers and mentors.
The achievements of MGC are certainly in academic results but a broader definition of success ensures social, emotional, sporting and artistic success are central to being a student of the College. The English, Humanities, Languages, STEAM, International and Wellbeing Programs are designed to build in each girl the skills to collaborate and inquire at ever more sophisticated levels.

In recent years MGC has developed a range of new facilities including The Gillard Centre which houses a flexible learning, hospitality and meeting space and provides river access for our exemplary rowing program. The College currently has plans for a STEAM and new 400 seat Performing Arts Centre to serve both the school and the wider Richmond community.
The students of Melbourne Girls’ College are global citizens conscious of the unique lessons attending a school educating young people from diverse backgrounds and over sixty nationalities can bring. Our community, in collaboration with key tertiary and local partners, is an inquiring, outward-looking school of excellence.
