The role of the Department of Education & Training is to support Victorians to build prosperous, socially engaged, happy and healthy lives. It does this by supporting lifelong learning and healthy development, strengthening families and helping to equip people with the skills and knowledge for a 21st century economy and society.

The Department of Education and Training is looking for skilled and driven Social Workers to contribute to the important work of our SSS teams supporting schools to address the barriers that impact on student(s) access, preparation, and progress to achieving their educational goals and development potential.

If you are passionate about helping children and young people reach their full potential, and like working in a collaborative multidisciplinary team - then a role in the Student Support Services is the job for you.

Why Student Support Services?

SSS comprise a broad range of Allied Health professions including psychologists, speech pathologists, social workers.

Working in SSS is deeply meaningful, highly rewarding, challenging, and dynamic and gives you the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the life of children and young people, their families, schools, and communities.

You'll work with a diverse group of people who share a common goal, and you will be well supported to use your professional skills and knowledge to provide specialised support at the individual, group, school, and area level.

As part of an Area based multi-disciplinary health, wellbeing, and inclusion team, you will work to help build the capability of schools to support student achievement, engagement, and wellbeing.

What can we offer you?

The work we do matters greatly, and there are few comparable opportunities to shape the life of children and young people for the better.

You will have access to a broad range of benefits including:

  • flexible working arrangements;
  • professional development and learning opportunities;
  • a competitive salary with salary progression;
  • a range of salary packaging options; and
  • generous leave entitlements, including purchasing additional leave.

We know that the success of our State depends on the success of our people. If you are driven by a desire to contribute to the big picture, and the future success of our children and our State, then a career working in our SSS allied health workforce is for you.
