Role

[Attendance requirement for this position]

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

  • Carry out allocated activities and tasks determined by the school consistent with role description.
  • Participate in planning and preparation with teachers on a regular basis.
  • Participate in professional learning activities provided through this initiative.
  • Participate in the ongoing evaluation of this initiative.

Who May Apply

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

Location Profile

Cann River P¿12 College is situated in Cann River, a small community on the Princes Highway, 440 kilometres east of Melbourne in the extensive forests of East Gippsland. The school is centrally important to the town, as is the Bush Nursing Centre and the Community Centre. Cann River now might be best described as an attractive cafe town with a good degree of optimism. The impact of the bushfires and more so COVID, effected the school community, but for some families limited employment opportunities and remoteness remain the bigger continuing issues.    The College program aims to develop young students as happy, tolerant and supportive individuals.  We prepare students for further education and work and life in the broader world. We aim for all students to develop realistic pathways and see achieving this as a central measure of our success.  The school functioned very effectively as a Neighbourhood Safer Place in the massive fires which began in the last days of 2019.   As a result of advocacy in mid 2019, around the issue of a Neighbourhood Safer Place and rural disadvantage, the school was given an exceptional new classroom.    As well as this, in 2020 extensive refurbishing was done on the main buildings, new playgrounds, fitness stations and a substantial generator have also been installed.    In 2022 the school installed a sprinkler system for the main building.

     

The College facilities include Science and Art rooms, a Design and Technology workshop, a Food Technology kitchen and a Vocational Education and Training (VET) Automotive workshop. The school has netbooks for every student.   The College curriculum aligns to the Victorian Curriculum. In Foundation to Year 6, literacy and numeracy are a major foci, students also study Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Arts subjects. At Year 7¿10, students study English, Mathematics, Science, Business Studies, Humanities, Physical Education and a range of Technology and Arts.  Specialist Art, Physical Education, and Technology teachers work across the whole school.   

At the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) level, students are able to select from a wide range of subjects based on the needs of the individual students. The school runs many programs including: a breakfast club, many inter-school sports, participation in art competitions, book week activities, community soccer, camps and excursions.
