Head of Christian Development

Head of Christian Development – Full time position (2014 start)

St Andrew’s Cathedral School in Sydney


The School is committed to encouraging all students to reflect on their beliefs and grow in their relationships and their understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ. We wish to see Christian Studies taught in a winsome, intellectually rigorous way, encouraging students to critique the bases inherent in the whole of the academic curriculum and to enquire into their own worldview, with a focus on examining the authenticity of Biblical Christianity.

The Head of Christian Development plays a key role in the Chaplaincy Team – presently seven teachers - having particular responsibility for leading others in the curriculum aspect:  administering our CD programme to over 1000 students (K – 12). The team also provides assistance to other teachers in integrating a Christian perspective into the learning of students in all subjects. This is a full time position.

The Chaplaincy team also leads voluntary ‘Cru’ groups, Bible studies and Camps, the mandatory School Chapel services each week and informally seeks to support Christians among the student body, in their ministry to their friends.

The successful candidate should have relevant academic and teaching experience, including theological studies. Ordination is not required. A lay person appointed to this position will be remunerated at Leadership 2 level under the Agreement. Should the successful applicant be eligible to be licensed through the Anglican Cathedral as Assistant Chaplain, he or she could be paid appropriately through a clergy stipend.

Questions about this position should be directed in the first instance to pbryson@sacs.nsw.edu.au
Applications must be emailed to  teaching@sacs.nsw.edu.au  following the directions at http://www.sacs.nsw.edu.au/?site=auscontentpages/How-to-Apply?site=aus before 5th September 2013.
