Thank you for your interest in the Mental Health Practitioner position at Noble Park English Language School.
Our school is a multi-campus school that provides an intensive English language course for newly arrived migrants and refugees from non-English speaking backgrounds in the southeast Victoria region.
The students are introduced to the Victorian education system and assisted with settlement in Victoria. We provide an intensive English language program and assist students with their transitions into Australia. Many students have been displaced by war, economic hardship or political persecution. The school is committed to assisting students to regain trust in people and systems and to develop the self-esteem and confidence required to face the challenges of a new country.
At any given time over 50 different language groups are represented. The school provides a secure and caring learning environment where staff and students respect and tolerate differences between cultures and religions and cater for individual differences in language acquisition.
Since 2009 the school has expanded to four campuses due to changing settlement patterns in the region. The main campus is at Noble Park and caters for both primary and secondary students. Casey campus is located at Hampton Park and also caters for primary and secondary students. Our Springvale campus and Stonnington (Glen Huntly) campuses are for primary students.
