Role

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.

Location Profile

Warragul Regional College is a medium sized rural secondary college catering for 800 students in years 7 - 12.

The College is set on 50 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and as it is sited on one of the highest points of the township, the College is known as the School on the Hill.

Warragul Regional College has a proud history and celebrated its centenary in 2011.

The school provides a wide range of curriculum options to cater for its students. Students are encouraged to develop personalised learning with a focus on pathways, differentiation and extension. Students can choose elective subjects from year 8 onwards, with aspirations rather than age being the driver of choice. Our curriculum is informed by student choice and curriculum is developed to suit.

Students are empowered to undertake personal growth through goal setting and development of personal management skills.

Coupled with these things is our understanding of the workforce needs of local and future industry. The school is able to provide our students with access to high quality trade educational facilities and cutting-edge equipment. To further support our strategy, the school has recently completed and opened $5.3m state of the art STEAM Centre

The school is the lead for the West Gippsland Trade Training Alliance, which among its assets boasts a Trade Trading Centre delivering Vocational Education Training (VET) to our students. Access begins at year 9 and goes through to apprentice training in newly renovated facilities on the college campus. The Trade Training Centre plays a lead role in both our VCAL and VET pathways streams.

To support the rural community, students are also offered a pathway into agriculture. This utilises extensive horticultural facilities available on site. This enables hands on learning in all aspects of agriculture with a new emphasis on horticulture.

The school also provides students access to a wide range of sports with well maintained fields catering for all major sports complimented by a very well equipped gymnasium.

Warragul is 100 kilometres east of Melbourne in one of the fastest growth areas of the State. Warragul is ideally situated for water, snow and hiking activities that students can readily access. The education market is highly competitive, there are 8 secondary schools (including government and independent) with in a 20 km radius of the college.  

Our Vision

Our vision statement was developed with input from all our stakeholder groups. As such, it is a vision that reflects our collective beliefs.

“Warragul Regional College will be the school of choice for our community because we develop talents, nurture curiosity and empower individuals to follow their passion.

To do this, we will become more like a garden than a factory - we will nurture learning experiences suited to each student.

We believe that learning is growing.”

Our Values

The College has four key values (CARE):

  • Community: We take care of each other
  • Achievement: We strive for excellence
  • Respect: We respect people and property
  • Effort: We work hard

We expect all members of our learning community to demonstrate these values every day.

At Warragul Regional College we believe that `learning is growing', and that all students should progress in the growth of their learning regardless of their (individual) starting points.

We define learning as being actively involved in the process of acquiring, understanding and applying knowledge and skills.

We believe that good learners:

  • show passion and motivation
  • practice and persist
  • challenge themselves and explore possibilities
  • reflect and evaluate
  • learn with and learn from others
