Mansfield Secondary College, is a small, rural Victorian school, close to Mt Buller and the snow fields, which offers a wide range of education and training programs to support our students as they transition into adulthood.
COLLEGE VISION: A dynamic learning environment where the whole community takes responsibility in preparing for the future.
COLLEGE VALUES: The College is committed to a Positive Behaviours program, which aims to encourage student performance and lift engagement by explicitly teaching desired behaviours and using all opportunities to reward student efforts and performance. The program underpins an evolution of a school culture which is based on mutual respect.
CURRICULUM: Year 7 students study a common curriculum covering domains as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. To aid transition, experienced staff work with students to develop student’s knowledge and skills and to help socialise them into a new environment
Junior School students (Years 7-9) select individual electives, which enable them to develop their particular skills, talents and interests.
Senior students, (Years 10-12) can elect alternative pathways by selecting from a broad range of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) units or undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
The College is recognised for successfully linking these studies to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Australian School Based Apprenticeship programs.
COLLEGE TEACHERS AND STAFF: The relatively small size of the College enables staff to extend additional support to individual students and to create an enriched learning environment.
Counselling and support is provided for students from a range of professionals including Year Level Co-ordinators, social workers, psychologists and a school nurse.
STRATEGIC PLAN: The College Strategic Plan aims to improve student learning and engagement, teacher education and facilities. The Strategic Plan is available at the College website.
FACILITIES: The College boasts a recently built language centre, music centre and hospitality centre. In 2019 we opened our new STEM Building. The stage two extension to this facility was completed in early 2021, and in term 4 2021 we opened a new Community Sports Precinct.
The College also enjoys a modern library and recently refurbished administration area. We have extensive information technology facilities, science laboratories and spacious attractive grounds.
SC1 Demonstrated experience and skills in coordinating a specific education support function.
SC2 Demonstrated capacity to supervise the work of other support staff and to develop procedures and guidelines relating to the work area.
SC3 Demonstrated high level oral and written communication skills.
SC4 Possess the technical knowledge and expertise relevant to the position.

Performs and/or supervises tasks that are carried out in accordance with guidelines, accepted practice and school policy. This may include the supervision and coordination of other education support class staff within the work area or educational program.
Supervision and coordination would be limited to ensuring routine tasks are performed to required standards. Input into identifying training needs and development of education support class staff within the work area or educational program becomes an important feature at range 2.
Specialised support to achieve specific outcomes is a feature of range 2. Typically this will involve accountability for a single function, (e.g. ensuring data is properly maintained) or the operation of a work area (e.g. managing the day to day operation of a school office) under the direction of the principal or another senior manager.
Provides support to teachers and students that is beyond the routine support provided at education support class Level 1, range 1. Within an educational program assists teachers with the coordination of the support function, such as directing/organising the work of other support staff or providing a specialist support role.
Undertakes medical intervention support tasks or other specialised
student/teacher support roles that require specific training that must be updated from time to time. The role is for a specific purpose for which there will be direct accountability as opposed to support roles that are carried out by a range of staff performing routine tasks under direction.
Performs technical tasks that require a sound knowledge of basic technical and/or scientific principles that are used to develop and adapt work methods and make judgements where there are clear guidelines and limited options. Routine technical support in libraries, science and information technology laboratories would be typical examples.
An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.
Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.
