Selection Criteria

SC1  Demonstrated capacity to perform duties consistent with established guidelines and frameworks, including coordinating and supporting others in respect to specific work functions relevant to the role.

SC2  Demonstrated capacity to work and collaborate with others in a team environment.

SC3  Demonstrated capacity to communicate effectively in a team environment, including 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 and other school staff in respect to the work area.

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


An education support class position at this range will perform tasks that are carried out in accordance with guidelines, accepted practice, and school policy under supervision and direction. This may include coordination of other education support class staff within the work area or educational program.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students but must not include duties of a teacher as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor. Supervision of students can be required individually or in groups up to 4 in controlled circumstances and where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Certification and/or qualifications of up to three years can be required at this level (noting that Registered Nurse is not included at this level, the first level for which is Level 1 range 3).

A role at this range may include:

  • Specific support tasks to achieve outcomes. Typically, this will involve accountability for a single function, (e.g. ensuring data is properly maintained) or the co-ordination of a work area under the direction of the principal or a manager.
  • Assisting teachers, within an educational program, by undertaking specific support tasks or the coordination of the support function.
  • Supervised health and wellbeing support tasks, medical intervention support tasks, or other specialised student/teacher support roles (e.g. enrolled nurses performing the role as described in schedule 3). These roles require specific qualifications and/or training, including roles where further training must be undertaken 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.
  • 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 would be typical examples.

An education support class position at this range commencing at the base will initially be limited to undertaking routine tasks that are carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established, and direction is readily available. Subject to any specific qualification and/or training requirement, an education support class employee employed in this range may be progressively required to undertake coordination, specialised student/teacher support tasks, or technical tasks as experience in the role is gained.


  • Provides routine support for teachers including assisting with planning of student routines
  • Supports communication between teachers and parents
  • Communicates with teachers on routine matters related to students and/or other responsibilities
  • Provides basic physical care and wellbeing support for students such as toileting, meals, and lifting
  • Communicating with student/s to support comprehension of basic tasks and information
  • Addresses immediate behavioural presentations relating to specific students within a classroom setting aligned to school policy and procedure
  • Provides basic support and supervision for individuals or groups of up to 4 students within a classroom setting
  • Supports teachers in the coordination of educational programs independently or under minimal supervision, including rostering and organising the work of a team of aides, providing routine co-ordination, guidance, and support to other student support staff, liaising with external providers of support services about clearly defined support needs and resources, assisting teachers with the communication of student outcomes and educational programs
  • Provides medical intervention support to a student/s, under specific conditions, with appropriate training and guidance
  • Provides specialised communication support for students and teachers in areas such as AUSLAN and braille

Rosebud Secondary College is located towards the southern end of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.  The area has a steadily growing population within a unique seaside environment.  Most employment is in the fields of retail; trades, hospitality, and tourism while a growing variety of agricultural pursuits add diversity to the many natural attractions of the region.

Within this setting, Rosebud Secondary College is a large secondary college with an enrolment of approximately 920 students across Years 7 to 12. 

The College has maintained a proud tradition over an extended period of time for providing outstanding educational and co-curricular opportunities for its students which has ensured strong social cohesion, high levels of academic progress and success for the broad range of students enrolled in the College.  Student success in the VCE is high and approximately 75% of Year 12 students continue to tertiary studies. The college has high expectations for student achievement in all areas of study including VCE, VET and VCAL. All streams are available to students through the senior years.

Because of its size, the College has a significant physical, financial, and human resource base.  These resources are used to support and promote the widest possible range of educational, sporting, creative and cultural activities that add value to learning and assist in individualizing education for each student. Approximately 30% of families qualify for CSEF. Although there is considerable economic diversity within the community, the overwhelming majority of students are of English speaking backgrounds.

The College is keen to include in its staff people who can contribute to the design and implementation of innovative structures and programs that will help to build upon the College’s strengths and to enhance its capacity to meet the learning needs of all students. Currently there is a significant focus on our teachers knowing their students as learners and understanding their individual learning barriers and enhancers. A high quality and consistent approach to curriculum development and implementation is a requirement of all staff at Rosebud.

Rosebud Secondary College believes building healthy and positive students is a key to their academic outcomes.  In 2022 the College is embarking on a $10 Million upgrade and opened of our Wellness Pavilion.

We have a comprehensive student tracking system with a clear internal referral process. We have some exciting initiatives in place including the development of the Wellness Pavilion, MindMatters implementation, B.A.S.E (Be Active, Sleep and Eat) and mindfulness meditation, and the Doctors in School program.
