Selection Criteria

SC1    Demonstrated experience and skills in coordinating Interschool Sport events.

SC2    Demonstrated capacity to supervise the work of other support staff and to develop procedures and guidelines relating to the work area.

SC3    Demonstrated high level oral and written communication skills.

SC4    Possess the technical knowledge and expertise relevant to the position.

Role

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.

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
