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 centre for inspiration. The notion of ELTHAM as one of Australia’s few truly independent schools was founded within this creative culture.

Members of Staff at ELTHAM College are expected to support and extend the College’s ethos and culture, foster in their students the enjoyment of learning, provide opportunities for them to participate in the wider life of the College and personal excellence and inspire a broad world outlook.  Staff should also be prepared to continue professional development and/or further education throughout their career.

This is a full time position commencing Term 1 2019 until the conclusion of the 2019 school year. We are seeking a dynamic teacher, with strong inquiry experience, in an exciting and active school. The successful applicant will be innovative, differentiate curriculum, work collaboratively with colleagues and engage fully in the co-curricular life of the school. Sharp academic acumen will be matched by high level organisational skills and an enthusiasm for working with young learners. Liaison with teachers and parents in an integral aspect of the role. 

Intending applicants are invited to submit a full curriculum vitae with names of three referees by Friday 21 September 2018 to
