Selection Criteria

SC1  Demonstrated experience and skills in coordinating a first aid support function.

SC2  Demonstrated capacity to support management in respect to the work area.

SC3  Demonstrated capacity to work well in a school team environment.

SC4  Demonstrated high level oral and written communication skills.

SC5  Possess the technical knowledge and expertise relevant to a first aid officer.

Role

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

Koo Wee Rup Secondary College is a large co-education public school situated in the high growth corridor of the South Eastern suburbs with easy access to Phillip Island, Mornington Peninsula and the Melbourne CBD.

With a current student population of 1145, enrolment numbers are now consistent with continuous growth.  Koo Wee Rup is a progressive community with a focus on community engagement and support.

The College is situated around attractive spacious grounds.  We completed the first stage of our rebuild in 2014 with 3 new Learning Community Centres.  The second stage will be completed this year.

Our vision is “to inspire a passion for lifelong learning and excellence in a community which provides all students with the opportunity to achieve their personal best”.  We emphasise the importance of students being independent and responsible and we instil the values of personal best, honesty and integrity, courtesy and respect for others.

Curriculum offerings at Years 7, 8 and 9 consist of core components covering the key Domains.  Year 9 also has an Alternative Program with a strong focus on life skills and pastoral care.  In Year 10 an Elective Program compliments the core subjects.  Students are also able to study VET, VCAL and VCE subjects as part of their Year 10 studies.  In Years 11 and 12 we offer a comprehensive VCE, VET and VCAL Program.

We are also a SEAL (Selected Entry Accelerated Learning) school, a Program for academically gifted students who study Years 7 – 10 in three years.
