Montague School provides a safe and supportive environment for students aged 15 - 19 years who have a mild intellectual disability or who have disengaged or not experienced success in mainstream school.
Our vision is for all students to be happy and successful learners who are empowered to develop their potential and supported to achieve a successful adult pathway. All students are enrolled in the Victorian Curriculum Applied Learning (VCAL) program.
The aims of the learning programs are to equip students with the educational knowledge, skills and abilities required to obtain employment or to participate in further education and to provide students with the capacity to live as independent and contributing members of the community.
Montague is housed in a heritage building in South Melbourne which traces its origin to 1869 when it was the Montague State School. The facility and grounds are conducive to an open, relaxed learning atmosphere to students.
The school is in close proximity to public transport so is accessible for students of all areas of Melbourne.
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.
SC5 Demonstrated capacity to provide advice and support to management in respect to the work area.
SC6 Demonstrated commitment to professional learning and growth for both self and others.
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.
