Arethusa College's Deception Bay Campus is seeking Expressions of Interest for Casual Educational Support Officers for 2019, who have experience or a genuine desire to work with disengaged young people in an educational setting. For the right applicant, the role may become available on a permanent basis, in the future.
Arethusa College is an independent, co-educational school catering for students from Year 7 to Year 12. We are accredited as a Special Assistance School with three campuses located at Deception Bay, Spring Hill and Windsor. We believe in providing an alternative approach to education for disengaged students. The College provides education which is innovative and meets the needs of the whole student, some of whom have learning difficulties and disabilities.
Applicants will demonstrate a passion for education and the ability to support the delivery of innovative learning opportunities for students who have disengaged from mainstream school education. The role includes working alongside teachers with the planning and delivery of curriculum, and programs such as Literacy, Numeracy and Personal Development. An understanding of strategies for behaviour management and supporting students with learning difficulties is preferable.
It is preferable but not essential, for applicants to hold a Certificate III in Education Support. Applicants should be a team player, capable and competent in a support role, and be able to work in a Christian environment and participate within the Christian ethos of the College. Applicants will need to hold, or be able to obtain, a Working With Children Card (blue card).
