Role

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually 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.

Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices.  Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.  Assistance is readily available when problems arise.  An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others.  More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

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.

Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1.  Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.

Responsibilities

  • Under instructions from the class teacher, assist students by:
    • Re-enforcing new concepts
    • Using alternative methods more suitable to the student’s learning strengths
    • Note-taking
    • Reading instructions and giving explanations
    • Assisting students to be organised
  • Provide basic physical (toileting, meals, lifting, and administration of medication) and emotional care for students, and refer any concerns to the relevant sub-school or SWC staff
  • Attend classes as per timetable except designated breaks
  • Assist with the supervision of students in the school yard, at camps, on excursions, in sporting activities, therapy and life skills activities.
  • Assist in the preparation of student resources and equipment under the direction of the teacher or SWC.
  • Set up and put away equipment and materials in support of teaching programs.
  • Participate in the monitoring and evaluation of individual student involvement and achievement.
  • Liaise with relevant outside agencies/professionals in relation to students within the PSD program when required.
  • Observing how students are doing with a task and difficulties they encounter, and providing feedback to the teacher.

Location Profile

Camberwell High School opened in 1941 with an enrolment of 350 girls and boys. Today we have 1200 students who continue to thrive in a school community which promotes contemporary learning and takes pride in its long history and rich traditions.

The school’s motto Disco Consulere Aliis (Learning to be considerate of others) underpins all that we do. Combined with our school values of achievement, creativity, respect and responsibility we focus on developing learners who excel, have high expectations of themselves in all they do and are ready to make an impact within the global community as active and engaged citizens.

A key document that outlines the school’s educational vision is the Camberwell High School vision for learning. As a school community we value learning that is transformative, focused on growth, dynamic and built on positive relationships and respect.

Teachers work collaboratively to ensure that they provide opportunities for students as individuals to explore ideas in depth, learn in different ways and at different levels. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and track their own growth and through collaboration and negotiation with teachers and their peers explore ideas, build understanding and develop skills.

To be a successful learner at school and to flourish in today’s fast paced world our learners need to be equipped with skills which enable them to be responsive and adaptable. The school has developed a school wide approach to doing this which we refer to as the learning dispositions. Teachers work with students on building these learning behaviours and approaches and they provide regular feedback to students and parents about their development.

We are a diverse community with varied perspectives and work as a community of staff, students and parents to develop agreement about the key attributes we believe our learners should have. The CHS Learner (read more below) captures the essence of what we are striving for in successfully educating each individual graduate of Camberwell High School.
