Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding place to work?
John Curtin College of the Arts is seeking to establish a pool of outstanding Teachers of Design and Technology for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2022 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2022 school year.
The college anticipates there will be one (1) fixed term, part-time (approximately 0.7FTE) position available upon commencement of the pool.
The college is seeking highly competent, dedicated and experienced teachers capable of teaching woodwork, metalwork and technical graphics to Years 7 to 12 students. The position also includes a significant amount of teaching lower school digital technology.
We are seeking teachers who ideally have experience working with highly able students. Experience and/or interest in participating in cross curricular science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) initiatives would be advantageous. As a selective school, an understanding and/or experience teaching Gifted and Talented students is desirable.
Suitable applicants will ideally support the implementation of the college’s Business Plan, work and teach in a team environment, be committed to whole college approaches and initiatives, and have a strong evidence based approach to teaching. Adopting inclusive practices, differentiating the curriculum and building positive relationships with students, staff and the community are important components of the role.
John Curtin College of the Arts is a leader in public education. Our commitment is to not only build capacity in students’ academic pursuits but to make each child the very best person they can be by celebrating achievements in all facets of education, using creativity to promote excellence and nurture wellbeing.
Our college caters for 1800 students from Years 7 to 12. Our programs reflect our belief that all students are individual and come with different learning needs. We offer learning experiences that motivate and extend students academically through our Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Entrance Arts Programs in Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music, Music Theatre and Visual Arts, as well as a school-based Academic Excellence Program. We are a Perth Glory Academy School and our Specialist Football Program is well renowned.
We use the Arts as a vehicle for student engagement and motivation. The Arts at John Curtin is as much about providing dynamic opportunities for all students (each year we produce over 100 performances/exhibitions) as it is about developing transferable life skills such as empathy, creative and critical thinking, collaboration and the ability to communicate, all important attributes for any future pathway.
