Position Information 

A full-time, permanent itinerant support teacher hearing (ISTH) position is based at Armidale City Public School (enrolment 407 students, including 15% Aboriginal Students and 32% EAL/D students).

Collaboration with students, teachers, parents/carers is integral to the role.  The itinerant support teacher hearing will liaise with and support mainstream teachers to develop inclusive education practices and enhance student learning outcomes, particularly in relation to literacy and communicative competence.

  3. The capacity to design, implement and review quality individualised learning plans for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

  5. Demonstrated understanding and ability to use a range of assessment approaches to inform teaching and learning, and evaluate student learning to modify and improve teaching practice.
  6. Highly developed communication, organisation and interpersonal skills with the capacity to build relationships and engage students, staff, families and stakeholders.
