Advertised Vacancy Number: IPS/TCH782759
This is a permanent full-time position commencing Term 1, 2023
Como Secondary College (SC) is looking to appoint a highly competent and dedicated Design and Technology teacher.
The successful applicant should have a deep belief that every student is capable of successful learning and exhibit highly effective teaching practices and a willingness to seek constant improvement in their own practice.
An excellent knowledge of the West Australian Curriculum and a capacity to deliver content in an engaging manner are also desirable qualities.
The successful applicant will ideally be able to display how they will provide educational opportunities and activities which enable students to achieve to their highest potential. In addition, the ability to engage students using a range of skills, knowledge of effective classroom management strategies and restorative practices will be considered favourably.
The ability to work well with your colleagues as part of a team to develop teaching strategies, resources and approaches to ensure each student can reach their maximum potential should be addressed in your application.
The position requires the ability to teach General Design and Technology Wood and/or Metal. The ability to teach a minor subject will be an advantage.
The successful applicant should have a growth mindset and be committed to the school’s Instructional Model which is based on practices that have a strong evidence base for their effectiveness. It is expected that all teachers will participate in the school’s Instructional Coaching program. Skills and knowledge in these areas will be an advantage.
A strong record of working in constructive collaboration with a variety of school teams will be a distinct advantage.
At Como SC every student matters. As a school and as teachers we don’t give up on students, we constantly explore new ways to engage students who are not making progress. The personal and familial attributes and circumstances relating to a student are not viewed as excuses for a student’s lack of academic and/or social progress. Instead they are viewed as challenges to be overcome.
In summary, Como SC is looking for a teacher who believes that success and failure in student learning is about what they do or not do, who see their job as unlocking the potential of their students. Adaptability, resilience and the ability to actively share and collaborate within a community of teachers will be seen as highly desirable characteristics.
