Role

[Attendance requirement for this position]

Performs and/or supervises tasks that are carried out in accordance with guidelines, accepted practice and school policy.  This may include the supervision and coordination of other education support class staff within the work area or educational program.  Supervision and coordination would be limited to ensuring routine tasks are performed to required standards.  Input into identifying training needs and development of education support class staff within the work area or educational program becomes an important feature at range 2.

Specialised support to achieve specific outcomes is a feature of range 2.  Typically this will involve accountability for a single function, (e.g. ensuring data is properly maintained) or the operation of a work area (e.g. managing the day to day operation of a school office) under the direction of the principal or another senior manager.

Provides support to teachers and students that is beyond the routine support provided at education support class Level 1, range 1.  Within an educational program assists teachers with the coordination of the support function, such as directing/organising the work of other support staff or providing a specialist support role. 

Undertakes medical intervention support tasks or other specialised student/teacher support roles that require specific training that must be updated 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.

Performs 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 laboratories would be typical examples.

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.

Responsibilities

  • Assist students on an individual or group basis in specific learning areas.
  • Assist with the communication between students and teachers, particularly the interpretation of instructions.
  • Provide basic physical and emotional care for students.
  • Participate in team meetings.
  • Assist with toileting, meals, lifting, and administration of medication to students requiring special care.
  • Assist with the supervision of pupils in playgrounds, at camps, on excursions, in sporting activities, therapy activities and life skills.
  • Assist in the preparation of student resources and equipment.
  • Prepare basic curriculum support resources.
  • Set up and put away equipment and materials in support of teaching programs.
  • Observe students and draw the attention of the teacher to them where necessary.
  • Participate in the monitoring and evaluation of programs and evaluation of individual student involvement and achievement.
  • Assist with communication between teachers and non-English speaking parents/students.
  • Assist in the translation of documents.
  • Assist students with the preparation and service of meals.
  • Ensure work areas and materials, equipment and appliances are maintained in a clean and ready to use condition.

Location Profile

Elliminyt Primary School is a highly inclusive, nurturing learning community that fosters life-long learning through motivated, responsible students who are engaged and involved in their learning environment.  We educate and nurture the ‘whole child’; developing academic, social and emotional competencies as part of the learning experience, supported by our core school values of Honesty, Respect, Personal Best and Responsibility.

English and Mathematics constitute the core of our curriculum program, as they are the building blocks on which other curriculum studies are built. All children will progress at different speeds, but the important thing is that they all work and learn to the best of their ability and feel appropriately challenged and successful in their learning. Teaching and learning programs are delivered through the flexible grouping of students that allows learning to take place at the appropriate level for each and every individual. Stimulating programs in areas such as The Arts, Physical Education, Science and Indonesian enrich the daily lives of all pupils.

Parents play a significant role in their child’s development as part of the Elliminyt Primary School community. When students enter our school in Prep (or any other level) we join with their parents in supporting their child through 7 years of education both academically as well as socially and emotionally. We are very fortunate to have an active, hard working Parents and Friends Association that enrich the experiences and opportunities we can provide for our students, working alongside our dynamic School Council.

We have high expectations for our entire school community in everything we do. We expect our students to be well behaved, be proud of their appearance and uniform and to be well mannered. Our approach to positive behaviour is proactive and centres on self-discipline, self-esteem, responsibility and reflective processes. With everyone working together our students enjoy learning and playing in a secure and safe environment.
