Annual Leave

A full-time employee is entitled to 152 hours (20 days) annual leave in respect of each twelve months of service and accrues progressively during a year of service according to the employee's ordinary hours of work. Part-time employees receive annual leave entitlements on a pro rata basis calculated according to the time fraction worked.

Additional paid leave - education support class

A full-time education support class employee is entitled to 228 hours (30 days) additional paid leave in respect of each calendar year.  Part-time employees receive additional paid leave entitlements on a pro rata basis calculated according to the time fraction worked.

This position requires some work during school holiday periods - this will be negotiated with the Principal.

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.

Location Profile

At Hampton Park Secondary College (HPSC) our vision of learning excellence is underpinned by the HPSC values of Respect, Learning, and Working Together.  Our values inform our daily interactions and decisions, these values are embedded in our whole school practice and they are supported by the high expectations that embody our School-wide Positive Behaviour Support Program.

Since 2020, we have transformed our approach to learning by enabling students to be more empowered to take control of their learning.  We are committed to embedding an education model that is more student¿centred and focused on personalised learning pathways.  We have redesigned our learning programme to enable students to excel through this research-based future-focused model, ensuring all of our students benefit from deepened learning and improved educational outcomes.  In line with this approach is our recognition that all students are unique, and that each student brings their own distinct and individual passions, interests, skills, and knowledge into our learning ecosystem.

Our world is rapidly changing and so must our approach to learning.  Sir Ken Robinson reminds us that Schools Kill Creativity.  Professor Yong Zhao suggests that education requires a ‘Paradigm shift’.  In 2019, HPSC joined Future Schools and commenced redesigning our curriculum and our approach to learning to enhance student engagement and learning outcomes.  Learning is categorised into three stages or ‘programmes’:  Explore, Enhance, and Excel.  These programmes recognise the unique needs of each student as they engage in their secondary education and allow learning to be transformative, dynamic, and focussed upon growth.  Our programmes allow students to ‘move through’ their secondary schooling experience in a way that better reflects their passions and abilities rather than their nominal ‘year level’.  Hence, whilst many students merely survive their time at high school, students at HPSC instead thrive in an exceptional learning environment where they are empowered and supported to create an educational pathway that is as individual and unique as they are.

At HPSC, we strive to create a culture of learning that enables learning to be done with students, rather than to students.  Our innovative, tailor made approach to learning assists students so that no student is held back, and no student is left behind.  Learning is an organic process.  By creating optimal conditions for learning, students thrive.

HPSC is a large, culturally diverse learning community situated in the City of Casey growth corridor.  The current student enrolment stands at 1144 students with approximately 52 nationalities represented and 67 languages other than English spoken.  Sixty percent of students speak a language other than English at home, 27% of students are enrolled in English as an Additional Language (EAL) and 66% of students receive additional equity funding.  There are 5 Principal Class, 116 Teacher Class and 70 Educational Support Staff.

We are seeking exceptional educators and support staff to join our highly professional and dedicated team to transform learning.  If you believe that an innovative approach is needed to engage students and improve outcomes, while better preparing them for a rapidly changing world, then I encourage you to apply to join our dynamic team.  To find out more about our College, we invite you to peruse our website (Hampton Park Secondary College (hpsc.vic.edu.au)) to access our 2022 Subject Handbook located under the Curriculum Tab.
