This vacancy is located at our Secure Care campus and includes Saturday work and full time hours during the school holiday breaks.

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.


A position exists for an individual with Hospitality Qualifications to work as an Education Support staff member.

The role requires work on Saturday and in a unique school setting within Secure Care Services (as described above). This position is responsible for working with students in the hospitality program, on Secure Care units. The successful candidate will develop a Hospitality program and support students to engage in that program.  The position is responsible for providing written updates on each student’s participation and outcomes and works in collaboration with the Secure Care team of teachers. The successful candidate will have the capacity to work with students with complex needs and issues and be willing to develop these skills through professional learning and development. Further to this the successful candidate will have the capacity to form strong  professional relationships with the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing staff members, who work within the Secure Care settings. A base qualification in Hospitality is essential.

Location Profile

Parkville College is a multi-campus college spanning the Parkville Youth Justice Precinct, the Malmsbury Youth Justice Precinct and the Secure Care Services (SCS) units in Maribyrnong and Ascot Vale. It is the only Victorian Government School that operates 52 weeks per year.

Parkville College is a registered specialist school that delivers senior secondary certificates for all children and young people detained in the custody of the Department of Justice and Community Safety and Department of Families, Fairness and Housing.
The Parkville College education model incorporates strong local partnerships to deliver a flexible range of educational options including VCAL and VET, in addition to the provision of holistic support to meet well-being needs and rehabilitative goals. In recognition of the custodial environment and existing educational disadvantage, the school program includes weekends and term breaks to enhance the learning opportunities for the children and young people in Secure Services.
Parkville College recognises that it serves a population of young people who have experienced, and continue to experience, interpersonal and socio-political adversity and trauma. For this reason, Parkville College has an established staff wellbeing program that offers group and individual wellbeing support to all staff to prevent the potential for vicarious traumatisation, cumulative harm and stress associated with the workplace.
Parkville College is committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce and acknowledges that this development must be accompanied by school
wide cultural safety practices and targeted supports. For this reason, Parkville College follows a Culturally Responsive Pedagogy and engages an Elders Advisory Council to guide our work.

Secure Care Services:
The two SCS campuses provide education and supports to youth generally aged between 10 to 17 years of age. DFFH (Department of Families, Fairness and Housing) manage both sites. SCS form part of a continuum of strengthened care and protection services for child protection clients, who are at a substantial and immediate risk of harm. The aim of Secure Care is to keep children safe whilst a suitable case plan is established; to reduce the risk of harm, and return them to the community as soon as possible, in a safe and planned way. Student stays range in length, but can be for a couple of days up to a few weeks long. Approximately 15-20% of the student cohort identifies as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.


This vacancy is located at our Secure Care campus and includes Saturday work, and full time hours during the school holiday breaks.
