Beaumaris Primary School (PS) is seeking to establish a pool for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2021 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2021 school year.

Suitable applicants will have a good understanding of what it means to collaborate effectively with others, as well as a thorough grasp of contemporary pedagogy. It would also be highly desirable for applicants to possess well-developed interpersonal skills and have previous experience as an educator in a primary school context. Could this be you?

Suitable applicants will be committed to making a difference in the lives of our students, and have the confidence to communicate regularly with parents when needed. You will need to be passionate about your work, organised and have excellent interpersonal skills to work successfully with students, a diverse group of staff and the community. Want to be part of our team?

Suitable applicants will also need to have applied understanding of instructional strategies to engage learners in inquiry, stretch students’ thinking and a proven ability to cater for the range of differences in the classroom. We are looking for professionals who have a strong understanding about the power of assessment for differentiated learning and teaching and proven practice in this element of pedagogy.

Incorporating student voice into program design and the co-construction of the learning and social environment is a priority at Beaumaris, and suitable applicants will be required to show capacity to be able to do this. Are you writing yet?

Our educators collaborate to respond to students’ needs and our assessment information shapes professional decision making, reflection and practice. One of the key features of Beaumaris is the well-developed Learning Team structure. The staff share knowledge, ideas and action research to continually aim for best practice. If you are deemed suitable for one of our vacancies, you will belong to a Learning Team. Does this spark your interest?
