Role

 

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 to co-ordinate the vegetable garden to help facilitate and support the kitchen to table cooking program across the school.

Who May Apply

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

Location Profile

Inglewood is forty-five kilometres north-west of Bendigo and the Inglewood Primary School is situated within the historic township area. The original school was built in 1870 and was both a primary and secondary school until 1982, when it reverted to being a primary school. 
Our School Values are `Achievement, Respect & Community'. These values frame the expectations of students, staff and the parent community at Inglewood Primary School. 

Inglewood Primary School provides a range of structured learning opportunities for a student population with a range of abilities. The school is in the Loddon Shire and reflects a medium/low socio-economic profile. School fees are minimal and through Equity Funding and funds raised by Parents & Friends, the school subsidises the cost of camps, excursions and extra-curricular activities so they are affordable for all families. Parents enthusiastically support school programs and fund-raising activities.

Inglewood Primary School offers a broad curriculum for its students with an explicit focus on Literacy and Numeracy. It is the school's goal to have every child achieve their potential through the provision of high-quality teaching practices. Evidence of this is the refining of instructional teaching models for reading, writing and mathematics. Consistent Instructional Models apply across the school and provide a clear framework for high level pedagogical practice in every classroom. Every child should leave the school with self-confidence and an appreciation that learning takes effort and that community involvement is important. While providing a differentiated curriculum for all ability levels and learning styles, our main focus is on students being fully engaged, feeling safe and supported and achieving their best possible learning outcomes.  

We continue to implement our 2020-2023 School Strategic Plan, with a focus on literacy, numeracy, student well-being, voice & agency.  The school is organized into three home group classes: a Prep/1, a Grade 2/3 and a Grade 5/6. School staff include a Principal, three classroom teachers, two ES staff and a part-time office manager (0.4 EFT). The school is visited fortnightly by the MARC Van we have a student wellbeing worker two days/week, funded through the National Schools Chaplaincy Program. 

The school has an active garden to kitchen program, which gives the children the opportunity to cultivate, harvest, prepare and enjoy eating healthy produce on a regular basis.
