Role

Responsibilities

Attendance is generally not required during school vacation periods. You may be recalled for up to 6 days as per the Victorian Government Schools Agreement 2017. You will be paid a leave purchase allowance of 72.47% for additional days worked.

Hours of attendance are from 9:00am to 3:00pm with a 30 minute unpaid lunch break. This position is Monday to Friday. Hours may change if students need change. This will be in agreement with the successful applicant.

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.

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

Location Profile

Manor Lakes P-12 College opened in 2009 and is located on Minindee Rd, Wyndham Vale. The college currently has an enrolment of 3000 students. The enrolment is expected to stabilise in the primary years and to continue to increase at secondary level. The backgrounds of our students reflect a cultural and socio-economic diversity. The college has a Student Family Occupation (SFO) of 0.552 which indicates that there is a level of disadvantage within our community. Approximately 16% of our student population come from a language background other than English. 

The vision of Manor Lakes P-12 College is `Dream, Believe, Inspire'. The college aspires to create a vibrant and harmonious community of learners who have a confident belief in their ability to learn, grow and succeed. ‘Achieve’ is under consideration to be added to ensure we keep a focus on improving student learning.

We are proud of the steady development of the College and the culture of learning that is being embedded.  We strive to provide the best possible education for our students and support for our staff.  Our philosophy ensures that our teaching practice is focussed on our students’ learning needs, and this is backed by current research about how students learn.

The College aims for an inclusive and welcoming culture for all families and students within our Designated Neighbourhood Area. We have established a number of programs and structures to provide appropriate learning environments and programs for all students including students with additional learning needs, complex and/or multiple disabilities. 

The college has developed partnerships with local and wider community agencies and organisations.  We have partnerships with the Smith Family (Wyndham Community Hub & Learning for Life), Wyndham City Council (including the Wyndham Vale Community Learning Centre), and various educational settings (e.g. Wyndham Community and Education Centre, Real Schools, etc.) and higher education settings (e.g. Victoria University – Early University Program, Melbourne University Kwong Lee Dow Scholarship program, Latrobe University – Intern and Monash University program). Our Sports Academy has affiliations with the NRL and Melbourne Storm, North Melbourne FC, Werribee FC, and Western Jets, Western United in the ASL and Melbourne United in the NBL.

The College has, and will continue to have, a relentless focus of continuous improvement in all aspects of College life, particularly focussing on improving learning outcomes for all students.  All staff are members of Professional Learning Teams and School Improvement Teams which focus on using data and evidence to identify areas to improve, and will work towards achieving goals as set out in the college’s Strategic Plan.

All new staff to Manor Lakes P-12 College participate in a comprehensive induction program which clearly outlines the college vision, expectations and pedagogical approaches.  Regular communication with all members of the community is achieved through keeping the college website, newsletters, Facebook, Compass, face to face meetings and information sessions and forums.  

The final stage of building works has been completed, and has resulted in a senior secondary classroom and administration centre and a secondary gym. In addition to the new build, we have 18 relocatable buildings that house 34 classroom spaces across both primary and secondary sectors. These are in addition to permanent classroom and specialist buildings as well as staff offices, staff rooms and administration areas. The outside areas of the College are substantially upgraded and a grounds development plan ensures a systematic approach to further grounds improvement. 

Our staff are committed to enhancing their skills and developing their capacity as teachers by involving themselves in professional learning opportunities (external and internal), coaching, mentoring, and being actively involved in Professional Learning Teams and the Professional Learning Community. 

The College is committed to developing, maintaining and sustaining relationships between the school and home through events such as: Open Classrooms, Celebrations of Learning, Parent Helpers, Parent Information sessions, Community Forums, Year level celebrations such as Year 12 graduation, and Performing Arts showcases such as the Big Day Out, and Western Edge Youth Arts.
