Work location: Gippsland | Bairnsdale

Selection Criteria

SC1    Demonstrated experience and skills in coordinating a specific education support function.

SC2    Demonstrated capacity to supervise the work of other support staff and to develop procedures and guidelines relating to the work area.

SC3    Demonstrated high level oral and written communication skills.

SC4    Possess the technical knowledge and expertise relevant to the position.

SC5    Demonstrated capacity to provide advice and support to management in respect to the work area.

SC6    Demonstrated commitment to professional learning and growth for both self and others.

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

Bairnsdale Secondary College is sited on Gunai-Kurnai land and has approximately 1170 students enrolled drawing on local communities.  Over 60% of these students travel to school on buses.

The Student Family Occupation Density is currently 0.59 indicating that the college population is classified as low-middle socio-economic when compared to schools across Victoria.  Ten percent of the school population is of indigenous descent.

The Bairnsdale Secondary College embraces their entire school community and the following values:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience

Our vision is to create a learning community with a focus on improving teaching practice through ongoing performance development so that students’ outcomes improve.

There are three Learning Hubs at the College. The Hubs are named in the Gunai Kurnai language to symbolise students’ journey through the College:

  • Year 7 – Wargomerrin (Morning)
  • Year 8-9 – Wurrin (Day)
  • Years 10, 11 & 12 – Malgobilia (Night)

Each Hub is supported by an Assistant Principal, Leading Teachers, Coordinators, Education Support Staff, Learning Support Assistants and Student Wellbeing team.  The Malgobilia team also integrates VCAL Staff and a Careers team. This ethos enables a holistic approach to the needs of each of our students encompassing our school values and the strong link between education and wellbeing.

The College also has a satellite site providing an alternative VCAL study centre (Ngooloo) for regional youth disengaged from mainstream education provision and potentially at risk.
