JOB DESCRIPTION

Advertised Vacancy Number: IPS/SS669991

This is a permanent full-time position commencing Term 1, 2021

Karratha Senior School (SHS) is seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic individual for the role of Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer to join their friendly team.

The successful applicant will be reliable, hard-working and flexible, whilst providing support and effective assistance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, their parents/guardians, teachers, the school and the community; through the knowledge, understanding and sharing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, language and culture. Ideally this support will increase attendance and improve the educational outcomes of students.

Karratha SHS has a population of approximately 1180 students, with an intake from contributory primary schools as well as schools from across Australia. Many families move to Karratha and surrounding townships such as Dampier, Point Samson, Roebourne and Wickham to work in the diverse resource, retail and service industries in the region. From within the Karratha town site, the school attracts students from all six local primary schools and the neighbouring primary schools of Dampier, Roebourne and Wickham. Karratha SHS offers a comprehensive transition for Year 6 students entering high school, designed to alleviate anxiety often associated with the move from primary to secondary schooling.

This selection process will initially be used to fill the above vacancy. Applicants assessed as suitable during this selection process may be considered for other similar vacancies that occur throughout our school for up to 12 months following this initial appointment. This includes circumstances where this position becomes subsequently vacant should the successful applicant decline or vacate the advertised position.

  • Good written and oral communication skills, including the ability to effectively interact with students, teachers, parents, community members and professional staff on the provision and development of educational programs.
  • Good interpersonal skills, including the ability to interact on a range of levels in a variety of settings and with different audiences, including community members, teaching and other professionals.
  • Ability to contribute to a school-level team and to provide multi-cultural direction in the development of the educational program, development of language resources, and evaluation of education and behaviour management programs.
  • Ability to effectively assist teachers in implementing educational and behaviour management programs.
  • Good organisational skills that will assist in the delivery of effective education programs to students.
  • Ability to assist with the general health and well-being of students.
