    At Toorak Campus (ELC-Year 6) our purpose is to build a solid foundation (knowledge, skills, mindset and self-worth) in each child. To engender a true love of learning that will inspire and support them through their educational journey and successfully prepare them for their tomorrow.

    Our focus is to embrace and integrate the philosophies of Reggio Emilia, The International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme and Positive Education, and to be the best primary school in the world at providing a well-rounded education that supports the development of the whole child.

    Our vision is to provide an inclusive, engaging and creative environment which enables each child to discover their ‘wings to fly’.

    Applications are invited for suitably qualified and experienced primary educators and leaders for this full-time 12-month, leave-replacement role, to commence at the start of Term 3, 2017. As this is a leave-replacement role, it includes the possibility of the tenure being adjusted (extended/reduced) with the appropriate notice provided.

    We are seeking applicants with the highest standards of professionalism, who work well in teams and have the ability to lead staff and student learning, providing dynamic learning experiences and ensuring a rich and engaging learning culture.

    The Head of Teaching and Learning/PYP Coordinator reports directly to the Head of Campus and is a significant member of the Campus Leadership Team. The role demands the highest level of communication and interpersonal skills and requires the applicant to work in close partnership with our passionate and committed teaching staff.

Therefore, the role requires expert knowledge and experience in teaching the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Victorian Curriculum, a deep appreciation of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and Victorian Early Years Framework and an awareness and keen interest in Positive Education. The successful applicant should be able to fulfil the ‘Lead’ level in all of the AITSL Standards.
