Role

Attendance during schools holidays is required for this position.

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.

The Kurnai College Statement of Purpose reads:

To build a Learning Community with a global perspective which promotes respect and achievement.

We define a Learning Community as a community where:

  • learning is our focus
  • all members of the College Community accept the responsibility for increasing their own learning
  • all members of the College Community accept the responsibility to assist others to increase their learning

The College’s Four Pillars underpin all aspects of our work. They are: Engagement, Excellence, Work Ethic and Relationships.

The current Strategic Plan focuses on building teacher capacity through Professional Learning Teams, improved data literacy and assessment for learning practices. We also focus on creating positive learning environments through the Positive Behaviour Support framework incorporating a restorative approach that is informed by a knowledge of generational poverty. The College values student, family and teacher voice.

The College has moved to a year level team approach to drive curriculum and pedagogical development. Peer coaching, instructional rounds and growth coaching are all strategies that inform this work. The College will also provide instructional leadership development opportunities for teaching staff over the period of the new plan.

The College has developed a strong ICT network and are building our E-learning capacity at every opportunity.

The College takes a leading role in delivering LOTE with a team of Mandarin teachers and support staff who work across our network at our feeder schools.

We welcome all students to our college and we are particularly proud of our efforts to be a more inclusive learning community. The College has been recognised for its work in forging links with the Koorie community and continues to welcome students from all backgrounds, working with all to achieve success.

The College works hard to connect with our local community to increase the number of Kurnai students in further education and training. The College also administrates two satellite campuses to cater for students at risk (LV FLO) and young parents (KYPP).

The College looks to the future with a sense of optimism and a positive frame of mind. With a stronger focus on our Kurnai identity and of belonging to one College with five campuses, combined with an understanding of, and commitment to, our purpose, we move confidently forward striving to provide the best possible learning opportunities for all members of our Learning Community.
