Parkville College is a multi-campus college spanning Parkville Youth Justice Precinct, Malmsbury Youth Justice Precinct, and the Secure Welfare units in Maribyrnong and Ascot Vale. This vacancy is at our Malmsbury campus.

Parkville College is a registered specialist school that delivers senior secondary certificates for all children and young people detained in the custody of the Department of Justice and Community Safety, and the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing.

The college delivers education to, and in the best interest of, some of Victoria's most vulnerable, yet inspiring young people who are filled with enormous potential.

The Parkville College education model incorporates strong local partnerships to deliver a flexible range of educational opportunities including VCAL and VET, in addition to the provision of holistic support to meet well-being needs and rehabilitative goals.

In recognition of the custodial environment and existing educational disadvantage, the school program includes weekends and term breaks, to enhance the learning opportunities for the children and young people in custody and secure services.
