Role

Attendance requirement for this position: 

Monday to Friday 4 hours per day. 

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.

Responsibilities

¿ Support students who have specific needs, particularly autistic students, in areas such as emotional regulation.
¿ Address immediate behaviour issues relating to specific students within a classroom setting, where the responsibility for students remains with a teacher.
¿ Implement strategies outlined in the child¿s Individual Education Plan and monitor goal achievement with the teacher and student.
¿ Follow the directions of the teacher with whom they are working and take on any feedback provided by them.
¿ Support students¿ comprehension of tasks and information through modified scaffolding.
¿ Provide basic physical and emotional care for students such as toileting, meals and reward systems.
¿ Assist in the preparation of student resources and equipment.
¿ Communicate with teachers about student progress.
¿ Assist teachers with parent communication about routine matters.
¿ Provide routine support for teachers.
¿ Assist with toileting, meals, lifting, and administration of medication to students requiring special care.
