Koo Wee Rup Secondary College is a large co-education public school situated in the high growth corridor of the South Eastern suburbs with easy access to Phillip Island, Mornington Peninsula and the Melbourne CBD.

With a current student population of 1145, enrolment numbers are now consistent with continuous growth. Koo Wee Rup is a progressive community with a focus on community engagement and support.

The College is situated around attractive spacious grounds. We completed the first stage of our rebuild in 2014 with 3 new Learning Community Centres. The second stage will be completed this year.

Our vision is “to inspire a passion for lifelong learning and excellence in a community which provides all students with the opportunity to achieve their personal best”.

We emphasise the importance of students being independent and responsible and we instil the values of personal best, honesty and integrity, courtesy and respect for others.

Curriculum offerings at Years 7, 8 and 9 consist of core components covering the key Domains. Year 9 also has an Alternative Program with a strong focus on life skills and pastoral care. In Year 10 an Elective Program compliments the core subjects.

Students are also able to study VET, VCAL and VCE subjects as part of their Year 10 studies. In Years 11 and 12 we offer a comprehensive VCE, VET and VCAL Program.

We are also a SEAL (Selected Entry Accelerated Learning) school, a Program for academically gifted students who study Years 7 – 10 in three years.

Priority areas in the Strategic Plan for the College include: Teaching and Learning, Student Engagement, collaboration and teamwork. The College has a strong focus on Digital Learning and has a BYOD Program for all students in Years 7 – 12.

The College is in active partnership with The Alpine School, Snowy River Campus and The Young Leaders to China Program. We have a wide range of extra-curricular activities including Instrumental Music, an annual Musical Production and Festival, HPV and a wide range of excursions, competitions, sports programs and camps.

The strength of the College is attributable in no small measure to the talent and commitment of staff and their rapport with parents and the community.

Staff at Koo Wee Rup Secondary College are noted for their generous and enthusiastic support for the extensive extra-curricular programs, for the general nurturing of students and the strong collegiality amongst colleagues.

Role
[Attendance requirement for this position]

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.

Assistance is readily available when problems arise. An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others. More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

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.
