Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2024 school year.
Suitable applicants should be committed to excellence in teaching and ideally be highly skilled in classroom and behaviour management practices. As a Teacher in an Education Support environment you will be responsible for positively managing a team of Education Assistants, within their classroom.
Whilst not essential, it is highly desirable for applicants to have experience in an Education Support setting and knowledge of the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Operational Framework. Suitable applicants should possess a strong knowledge of effective, evidence-based pedagogical practices relevant to the education support context.
Suitable applicants will ideally be able to use a range of assessment and reporting methods that show student achievement in relation to learning outcomes and possess the ability to plan purposeful, relevant and authentic learning experiences that cater for diverse student learning needs. They should also utilise high quality teaching practices in the areas of school priority to support positive behavioural/social-emotional, literacy and numeracy outcomes for students with disabilities.
Located in the beautiful Perth hills, KSESC is a school for students with mild to severe intellectual disabilities. While this criterion is the primary basis for enrolment, students typically present with a broader range of disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorders, psychological disorders and physical disabilities. The diversity of disability, combined with the specific learning needs of individuals, creates a dynamic and complex learning environment that requires a collaborative approach towards meeting all student needs.
To be suitable for this role, you will need to demonstrate your competency against the following domains (that govern the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers):
- Professional knowledge;
- Professional practice; and
- Professional engagement.
Applications will be assessed against these domains. The business needs of the school may also be considered. It is therefore recommended that you consider all information contained in the advertisement and any other related information before applying for the vacancy.
Applicants currently completing the Department of Education Leap program (formerly known as the Switch program) can apply for vacancies using their current or Leap qualification – even if they have not completed the program at the time of applying. Applicants may be appointed to a vacancy based on the qualification being completed via the Leap program.
