Role

 

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually 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.

Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices.  Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.  Assistance is readily available when problems arise.  An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others.  More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

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 employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1.  Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.

Responsibilities

  • Provides coordination support to teachers through rostering and the organisation of the work of a team of aides, including supervision and guidance.
  • Conducts routine presentations to parents to assist teachers in communicating objectives and outcomes relating to educational programs and/or students.
  • Liaise with external providers of support services.
  • Provide medical intervention support that involves a specific medical condition approved by the Department, requires specialised training/instruction that requires regular updating and has clearly defined responsibility for the administration of such support.

Who May Apply

Individuals with the aptitude, experience and/or qualifications to fulfill the specific requirements of the position.

EEO AND OHS Commitment

The Department of Education and Training is committed to the principles of equal opportunity, and diversity and inclusion for all. We value diversity and inclusion in all forms – gender, religion, ethnicity, LGBTIQ+, disability and neurodiversity. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for roles within the Department.  The Department recognises that the provision of family friendly, supportive, safe and harassment free workplaces is essential to high performance and promotes flexible work, diversity and safety across all schools and Department workplaces.

Child Safe Standards

Victorian government schools are child safe environments. Our schools actively promote the safety and wellbeing of all students, and all school staff are committed to protecting students from abuse or harm in the school environment, in accordance with their legal obligations including child safe standards. All schools have a Child Safety Code of Conduct consistent with the Department’s exemplar available at http://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/programs/health/protect/Pages/childsafestandards.aspx

DET Values

The Department’s employees commit to upholding DET’s Values: Responsiveness, Integrity, Impartiality, Accountability, Respect, Leadership and Human Rights. DET’s Values complement each school’s own values and underpin the behaviours the community expects of Victorian public sector employees, including those who work in Victorian Government Schools.

Location Profile

Broadmeadows Primary School offers a unique educational environment where the underlying belief that every student can learn is at the heart of everything we do. We have an enrolment of 270 students and a staff of 22 teachers, 10 Education Support staff and 2.6 Principal Class members.

Children are guaranteed a smooth transition into primary school with our on site kindergarten. Foundation teachers work closely with the kindergarten to provide an engaging and welcoming transition program into school.

Our students are encouraged to ‘Aim High’ and to do their best. Our values; Kindness, Respect and Learning Together, demonstrate how we provide a caring environment in which children can thrive. Our Learning Behaviours are front and centre of everything we do, and children are taught the strategies to take control of their learning and regulate their behaviour. Our calm and engaging environment ensures students are nurtured and their wellbeing is always monitored and evaluated.

 

Broadmeadows Primary School has an increasing number of EAL students. New arrivals attend the Collingwood English Language Centre and are supported by an EAL teacher when they transition to mainstream. Our school speech pathologist works with teacher aides to implement a Speech Therapy Assistance Program in Foundation, Year 1 and 2. We have a Language Discovery Program in Foundation to strategically introduce new vocabulary and build language skills. There is a Literacy Learning Intervention Program in Years 1 - 4.

We believe that every student is special and tailor our teaching to identify and maximise their strengths and address areas for development. The school provides a safe learning environment. The use of our emotion walls help to highlight to both staff and students issues they may have otherwise been unaware of. Students are also conscious of how negative treatment of others impacts not just on individuals, but on the community as a whole.

 

The school offers specialist subjects in Physical Education, Visual Arts, Spanish and Performing Arts. Our school choir practises weekly at lunchtimes and performs at whole school events and assemblies.

We have a strong connection with our neighbouring Secondary School and this allows students to confidently transition to Year 7.  Our students participate in the Secondary School’s bi-annual musical production, music concerts, and they attend the after school science activities at Hume Central Secondary.
