They should possess well developed knowledge and understanding of the Western Australian Technologies Curriculum, and the ability to deliver and assess the curriculum to ensure students can reach their full potential in all aspects of the Technology and Design Process and contexts. Holding a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or the willingness to obtain one would be highly advantageous.
Suitable applicants will ideally possess excellent interpersonal skills and a capacity to work collaboratively in a dynamic team environment with students, teachers, and the wider community to achieve the best educational outcomes for our students.
