Swifts Creek P-12 School educates approximately 110 students from Prep to Year 12 from the communities set in the high country of East Gippsland, located in the Tambo Valley.

As a key member of our team there will be opportunity for personal development connected to the work which we are focused on. Given the impact of the last two and a bit years we know that we need to develop our students’ oral language skills, provide additional care measures for our students, and continue to drive an improvement agenda.

We are most fortunate to have a quality team of health practitioners supporting the work of our educators.

Through a focus on our values of Courage Joy and Kindness we are enabling our students to exit their learning journey with us to a wide range of destinations which brings our team great satisfaction and pride.

Small cohort groups provide both an opportunity and a different level of complexity. As a multi campus school we ensure we have a series of signature events across our different stages of learning to allow for each child to be the best that they can be, both academically and as a global citizen.

This is best achieved through effective liaison with parents and a variety of partner organisations.

Selection Criteria

[The school must develop their own individual Selection Criteria based on the 5 core elements as outlined in the Selection Part of Ministerial Order 1038 for Assistant Principal Positions and should delete this statement as part of that process.]


The assistant principal reports directly to the principal.

Assistant principals have a primary responsibility for the management of significant areas or functions within the school to ensure the effective development, provision and evaluation of the school's education program.

In exercising the responsibility, assistant principals will have the authority to make all significant decisions relating to the program, budget and staff relating to their area of designated responsibility within the framework of the school's strategic plan, policies and budget.

Assistant principals will contribute to the overall management of the school through involvement in policy formulation and decision making.

The management of significant school program or functional areas in schools involve assistant principals in the analysis of the needs of students and the translation of state educational policy and frameworks into appropriate education programs to meet the needs of all students.

Typically assistant principals will be responsible for the effective use of the teaching staff and program budget of a defined area of the school's operation and for the oversight and leadership of the educational programs provided utilising these resources.

Typically, assistant principals perform one or more of the following functions:

  • supervision and coordination of the work of senior curriculum or level coordinators;
  • allocation of budgets, positions of responsibility and other resources within the area of responsibility;
  • supervision of the delivery of teaching programs;
  • management of programs to improve the knowledge and experience of staff;
