Albert Park College opened in 2011 with a year 7 enrolment capped at 150 students and the new college has been developed as a Year 7-12 college. The College is multi campus and located in a prized inner city location. Incorporating recycled materials, indigenous flora, and natural light and ventilation, our buildings and grounds reflect our communities belief in environmental sustainability.

The new buildings feature a 21st century learning environment with open plan classrooms. All staff will be expected to teach in teams in the open plan environment.

As a designated Apple Mac school all staff will be expected to be familiar with the use of Apple computers / devices as an integral part of their teaching and learning.

The school offers two streams: general co-educational entry, and a Select Entry Accelerated Learning program that offers places to up to 50 students based on an entrance test and interview.

There are three key themes driving the culture of the new college - a celebration of arts and culture, scientific and mathematical exploration and the development of outstanding leadership capabilities.

The school also offers an Accelerated Arts program and is developing an excellent music program with a stage band, concert band and ensembles.

At Albert Park College we value:

A Positive Culture - we are positive and open and encourage a can do attitude - we celebrate a diverse range of skills and achievements - we display leadership.

Community - we respect, support and nurture those around us - we are fair, consistent and clear.

Knowledge - we are open to new methods of teaching and learning - we extend and challenge students to be the best they can at academic, sporting and artistic pursuits/subjects - we promote a culture of excellence.

Environment - we foster an open, rich, dynamic and creative learning environment that teaches skills for the future - we care for environmental sustainability.

Partnership - we are actively engaged in a partnership of learning that includes students, teachers, parents and the wider community to maximise the impact of learning.

Families of The New Albert Park College have high expectations and we are driven by our commitment to deliver the best possible outcomes for the students of our community.

Selection Criteria

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.


  • Coordinate the delivery of administrative services within the school.
  • In consultation with the principal, determine and manage work priorities within the school office.
  • Develop and implement strategies to ensure effective administration procedures.
  • Maintain school's records system, including computerised student, staff and school records.
  • Coordinate the implementation of requisitioning, purchasing and issuing procedures.
  • Manage client reception.
  • Liaise with school staff in regard to support requirements.
  • Coordinate staff timetabling.

Who May Apply
