Advertised Vacancy Number: SS/TCH863666
Are you an innovative and engaging teacher who wants to work strategically across regional and remote schools in Western Australia?
School Of Isolated and Distance Education (SIDE) is seeking to establish a pool of specialist, highly relational secondary teachers to join the Regional Teaching Team (RTT) to assist in the education of students at educational risk in regional and remote areas, for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2024 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2024 school year.
SIDE are building a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team of quality and highly motivated teachers to work with regional and remote communities in a co-design model with the aim of closing the gap for Aboriginal students and students at educational risk. Suitable applicants will ideally be skilled in the use of diagnostic and student performance data to provide an evidence base to inform targeted teaching and learning programs.
Central to this position is a focus on producing a culturally responsive co- design model in collaboration with school and community stakeholders. RTT will create teaching programs and resources that are contextually relevant to students and will support their aspirations towards pathways to further training and employment, enabling students to be successful on-county or any chosen field.
Teachers in the RTT should exhibit innovation and creativity in classroom practices and hold a deep understanding of literacy and numeracy standards in the Western Australian curriculum. They should differentiate classroom resources, creating engaging and culturally relevant materials to cater for student diversity, including English as an additional language/dialect. It is highly regarded that suitable applicants are able to understand instructional and curriculum design, exhibit self-reflective practices and work collaboratively in a dynamic team environment.
As a recognised leader in blended education in Australia, SIDE models exemplary practice in the use of both synchronous (Webex) and asynchronous (Moodle) platforms of instruction. SIDE has a dedicated training and support program for staff who join our school. Our practice is both contemporary and constantly evolving, making SIDE an exciting and dynamic place to work.
All teaching staff are expected to participate in our regional travel program to meet the needs of students and partner schools. Visits are planned in negotiation with staff, and at times may include short-term stays in regional and remote locations.
SIDE has a main campus in Leederville and teaching facilities at Canning College, Clarkson Community High School and Northlake Senior Campus. You may be required to work at any one of these or future venues.
