You would have a genuine interest in working in collaboration with colleagues to lead improvements in pedagogy, curriculum and student achievement across Year 7 to 12. Strong knowledge and skills in the effective integration of innovative and engaging ICT based technologies in the classroom is important, as Duncraig SHS operates a 1:1 personal ICT device policy that is firmly embedded across all learning areas. A familiarity with SEQTA would be well regarded as this is the online learning management system used at Duncraig SHS.
Successful applicants would have the ability to work collaboratively within a busy and well-functioning team environment and will have the opportunity to make a lasting contribution to our school community. They will be dedicated, passionate and highly effective educators who have a deep understanding of and experience with a diverse range of student learning needs and styles, and will inspire students to achieve to their potential.
