Educational Vision

Our mission is to collaboratively generate a positive¿learning environment that challenges and supports us all to grow.

Teaching spaces in the school allow for full implementation of a professional learning community approach. Integrated planning and delivery, reflecting on the impact of teaching practice, professional interaction and activation of student voice using evidence-based, high impact teaching strategies are all central to our educational vision.

Learning Communities are designed around modifiable spaces that accommodate multiple learning approaches and that flexibly respond to the requirements of students and teachers, creating a sense of shared ownership, inclusion and everyday learning.

Students and teachers utilise easily accessible technology to achieve collaboration, research and creation. The school enables learners through our Academy program to investigate ideas collaboratively, encourage learners to create, refine, reflect on and publish their work, facilitating peer-to-peer teaching and engagement, and mobilising social networks for authentic inquiries or investigations.

DESIGN

Community

Establishing a sense of place and community; a framework for the development of an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable urban structure, empowering strong, diverse communities is central to our vision of Commitment to Whole of Life Learning and Living

An understanding that life-long learning is most successful when it is inclusive of: children, parents, neighbourhoods, wider communities and global citizenship. It must reflect the values, vision and aspirations of all members of the endeavour.

Integrating Evidence-based Knowledge of High Impact Learning and Teaching Research and Strategies

Opportunities to privilege seamless planning, professional interaction and student engagement in learning.

Encourage quality professional learning opportunities and the conditions for capturing practice, building practice excellence, knowledge sharing and collaboration through team structures, collaborative design, planning and teaching and peer observations and feedback.

All staff will contribute to the curriculum of the school and be part of professional learning teams with collaboration being the key in achieving the vision.

OPPORTUNITY

The school’s design and location within the Henry Road education precinct represents an opportunity to promote authentic lifelong learning. Proximity to the neighbouring primary school, integrated child and family centre and the strong commitment from Cardinia principals to partner around curriculum design will ensure that the school is a pivotal place for community connection.

The design and intent of learning spaces will facilitate a professional learning community approach enabling educators to collaborate, implement high-impact teaching strategies and reflect on the impact on learning in a continuous improvement culture.

As a member of our team, you will contribute to the development of a culture of high standards for both staff and students and the unique opportunity to be involved in an agile environment.

The appointment of aspirational staff who are keen to explore new methods of delivery of the teaching and learning programs will be central to the school’s success.

We will have high expectations of each other and the students who will attend here. This will be evidenced by the way we interact with each other, our professional attire, vision for learning, the respectful way in which we communicate and our drive to deliver meaning and purpose for our community.

We welcome your interest in joining the team at Edenbrook Secondary College.

Role

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established and direction is readily available.

Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices. Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.

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.
