ELTHAM College has been educating young women and men for the past 40 years. The College was conceived in 1973 as a new concept in independent, coeducational schooling. It was founded by a dynamic group of community members who were seeking schooling for their children that would look beyond average educational practice to education that fostered the talents, confidence, initiative and passion for learning in every individual.

Our location in the Nillumbik Shire, northeast of Melbourne, is no accident. Historically this district has inspired free thought and innovation. For years, artists, writers and intellectuals have been drawn to Nillumbik as a pivotal centre for inspiration. The notion of ELTHAM as one of Australia’s few truly independent schools was founded within this creative culture.

ELTHAM teaches 2 languages: Chinese and French. All students study a LOTE until the end of Year 9. The College has an active policy of encouraging language teachers to maintain their proficiency through professional development and visitation to the relevant country. Exchange and Sister School arrangements are another important component of our language experience. Sister Schools have been established in Beijing, Shanghai, Montpellier and Okinawa. Study tours occur every two years.

This is a full-time position fixed term contract commencing Term 1 2019 until the end of Term 4 2019. We are looking for an exciting, innovative teacher who is able to teach Mandarin Chinese from Prep through to Year 7 level.
