We are looking for a Pathways Coordinator with the ability to embed their Christian faith into all aspects of their work. The successful applicant will be committed to seeing Christian education make a real difference in the lives of their students.

About the role The central role of the Pathways Coordinator involves the development of a Pathways program that allows students to explore career pathways and achieve VET Certificates whilst completing their NTCET. This role involves a number of tasks but at the heart of the job is a desire to see young people grow in confidence and to learn new skills that value add to their lives beyond school. God has called us all for a purpose and it is the vision of the Pathways team that, as students move through their senior years of Schooling, they will begin the journey that He has designed for them.
