Location Profile

Monterey Secondary College is situated in Frankston North and services the areas of Karingal, Skye, Carrum Downs, Seaford, Frankston and Frankston North.  Along with Aldercourt Primary and Mahogany Rise Primary, the schools form the Frankston North Schools Alliance as part of the Frankston North Education Plan (FNEP).  The $26.2 million place-based education delivers life altering opportunities for families in the local community through a birth-to-adult model that breaks cycles of intergenerational disadvantage. The plan has seen increased investment in new facilities, resources and staff, centred around  a partnership between the Schools, the Frankston City Council, the Department of Education and the Colman Foundation.  Through this model, Monterey and its partner schools are at the centre of an ambitious, broad-reaching and life-changing community transformation that begins with high-quality education and achieves the plan¿s vision that ¿every child and family is successful in learning and life¿.


Through the plan, Monterey Secondary College has undergone a period of rapid positive-transformation, as documented in The Age newspaper, in December 2021. (https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/former-struggle-school-stuns-with-two-year-turnaround-20211219-p59irm.html) Staff and student culture has turned around, setting a stable foundation for the ongoing success of the College. This transformation makes Monterey Secondary College a fantastic school for any ambitious educator to grow and develop themselves, with the support, mentoring and guidance of a successful leadership team. As a growing and eimproving school Monterey offers a unique opportunity for school leaders. Being a part of Monterey¿s turnaround journey offers a unique opportunity for ambitious and highly effective school leaders to develop skills and capabilities, quickly broaden the scope and impact of their roles and accelerate their development as highly effective school change-makers.


To learn more about that transformation, you should arrange a tour of the school with a member of the leadership team, and read about our partnership with the Berry Street Education Model. https://www.berrystreet.org.au/news/bsem-in-action-monterey-secondary-college


In 2021 Monterey Secondary College opened the Centre of Excellence, with high quality Teaching and Learning across all domains and a select entry Sport and Health Sciences stream, the Silvertop Sports Science Academy.  Multiple partners have been engaged to provide extended learning programs and opportunities both before, during and after the school day.  Purposefully designed, resource- rich, flexible spaces incorporating indoor and outdoor learning areas exist across the school and will continue to be built and developed. These state-of-the-art facilities are utilised to deliver engaging curriculum and programs.


A strong and meaningful transition program ensures a smooth and seamless flow through the Frankston North Education Precinct for local students, whilst partnerships, outreach and further transition programs support student enrolments from primary schools outside of the precinct and within the College enrolment zone.  Monterey Secondary College fosters a highly positive learning environment that successfully caters to a diverse student cohort and accommodates all with a range of pathways and programs. The College recognises that students have specific learning needs and make progress at different rates.  The challenges of becoming a lifelong learner, pursuing further study, successfully entering the workplace and being a responsible member of society face all students.  The school assists students and staff to meet these challenges and be not only responsible individuals who are able to relate to family, friends and colleagues, but informed citizens, who understand and contribute to the community in which they live and the wider world around them.


The Frankston North Education Plan will deliver community transformation in Frankston North and maintains an unrelenting focus on improving outcomes through high quality teaching and learning.  Monterey Secondary College seeks staff to join their team who share this passion and are genuinely committed to working with young people in the school and aspire to the vision of the Frankston North Education Plan, that ¿Every child and family is successful in learning and life.¿

The classroom teacher classification comprises two salary ranges- range 1 and range 2.  The primary focus of the classroom teacher is on the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes.  The classroom teacher engages in critical reflection and inquiry in order to improve knowledge and skills to effectively engage students and improve their learning. 

As the classroom teacher gains experience his or her contribution to the school program beyond the classroom increases. All classroom teachers may be required to undertake other duties in addition to their rostered teaching duties provided the responsibility is appropriate to the salary range, qualifications, training and experience of the teacher.

Classroom teacher Range 2
Range 2 classroom teachers play a significant role in assisting the school to improve student performance and educational outcomes determined by the school strategic plan and state-wide priorities and contributing to the development and implementation of school policies and priorities.

A critical component of this work will focus on increasing the knowledge base of staff within their school about student learning and high quality instruction to assist their school to define quality teacher practice.

Range 2 classroom teachers will be expected to:
- Have the content knowledge and pedagogical practice to meet the diverse needs of all students
- Model exemplary classroom practice and mentor/coach other teachers in the school to engage in critical reflection of their practice and to support staff to expand their capacity
- Provide expert advice about the content, processes and strategies that will shape individual and school professional learning
- Supervise and train one or more student teachers
- Assist staff to use student data to inform teaching approaches that enable targets related to improving student learning outcomes to be achieved.

Classroom teacher Range 1
The primary focus of the range 1 classroom teacher is on further developing skills and competencies to become an effective classroom practitioner with structured support and guidance from teachers at higher levels and the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes. These teachers teach a range of students/classes and are accountable for the effective delivery of their programs.  Range 1 classroom teachers are skilled teachers who operate under general direction within clear guidelines following established work practices and documented priorities and may have responsibility for the supervision and training of one or more student teachers.

At range 1, teachers participate in the development of school policies and programs and assist in the implementation of school priorities. 
The focus of a range 1 classroom teacher is on classroom management, subject content and teaching practice.  New entrants to the teaching profession in their initial teaching years receive structured support, mentoring and guidance from teachers at higher levels.

Under guidance, new entrants to the teaching profession will plan and teach student groups in one or more subjects and are expected to participate in induction programs and other professional learning activities that are designed to ensure the integration of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy across the school.

Teachers at range 1 are responsible for teaching their own classes and may also assist and participate in policy development, project teams and the organisation of co-curricula activities.


The role of classroom teacher may include but is not limited to:

  • Direct teaching of groups of students and individual students;
  • Contributing to the development, implementation and evaluation of a curriculum area or other curriculum program within the school;
  • Undertaking other classroom teaching related and organisational duties as determined by the School Principal;
  • Participating in activities such as parent/teacher meetings; staff meetings; camps and excursions;
