Role

[Attendance requirement for this position]

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.

Who May Apply

Individuals with the aptitude, experience and/or qualifications to fulfill the specific requirements of the position.

Location Profile

Port Melbourne Primary School, with an enrolment that has grown from 175 in 2006 to a 2022 enrolment of 738, is one of the closest schools to the city and draws its student population from a wide range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. This brings together a unique and diverse school community that benefits from wide-ranging cultural experiences. The Student Family Occupation (SFO) rating indicates that the school's demographics have changed significantly in recent years, as more affluent families have moved into the catchment area. A reducing number of families (21% in 2021) are in receipt of the Camps and Excursions Support Fund grant. PMPS is a dynamic inner urban school where multiculturalism and diversity are embraced, welcomed and understood.

There are 31 classrooms in the school in 2022, and they teach collaboratively in open-plan classrooms and plan their differentiated programs in collaborative teaching teams. Our staff are encouraged to participate in professional development that supports their professional growth, ensuring it has a positive impact on the achievement and wellbeing of all students.

Our school is in close proximity to facilities such as the Port of Melbourne, MSAC, Gasworks Arts Park and the Melbourne CBD, and 80% of our facilities have been constructed in the past ten years, with additional construction programs to continue in 2022.
