Outstanding opportunity to teach at Australia’s Top Co-educational School.  

Commencing Term 2, 2018, Ballarat Clarendon College is seeking a teacher for its residential King Island campus. This is a full-time fixed term position until the end of 2018 (with the possibility of extension). As part of an integrated curriculum, the teacher will assist in the coordination of outdoor education programs and provide instruction in practical educational activities to secondary students. Due to the nature of the residential program, a strong focus on pastoral care is a critical aspect of the role. A special requirement of the role is to reside on King Island during school term time. Please note that accommodation is provided by Clarendon.

King Island Program

Working as part of the King Island program presents staff members with an opportunity to take on a varied and exciting position.

Staff members are responsible for areas of the program, including mentoring a house group of students (typically 6-8 students); academic subjects; outdoor activities, including hikes, surfing and other events during the term; as well as participation in fitness and sporting programs. Staff members will be designated particular areas to co-ordinate. 

The working environment is one that is constantly evolving in the pursuit of excellence. The role involves a combination of autonomous work and teamwork and requires strong organisation and communication skills. A typical day is difficult to define as each day generally provides staff with different roles, responsibilities, and start and finish times.

The salary offered will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s skills, qualifications and experience. Teachers with all levels of experience, including graduates, are encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants are required to apply via our website and are required to submit an application/cover letter, up-to-date resume, including details of two professional referees, and a statement addressing the Key Selection Criteria.

Before commencing work on our King Island Campus and throughout a teacher’s time at Clarendon, teaching staff must be registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching and the Teachers Registration Board of Tasmania.

Ballarat Clarendon College is an equal opportunity employer and provides a non-smoking environment for all students and staff.
