Teachers at CLC are expected to provide integrated, differentiated and authentic learning experiences for students. This will be achieved through the use of High Impact Teaching Strategies (HITS), formative assessment, CMS approaches in building positive relationships and engaging families in their child’s learning. As a teacher at CLC you will commit to using our college wide pedagogical framework and will be supported in this process.
The College has a strong Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) focus, working in a collaborative partnership with local primary schools, industry and tertiary education.
