This is a thirty-six (36) month fixed term, full-time position commencing Term 1, 2021

Hedland Senior High School (SHS) is seeking a passionate, highly motivated and innovative Deputy Principal to provide educational leadership across the school and specifically to the Success Program as part of the 2021 – 2023 BHP Pilbara Education Partnership.

This Partnership is the largest corporate and Government partnership undertaken in regional Western Australia. The partnership between the Department of Education and BHP has been in place since 2005. The purpose of the Partnership is to enhance education services and improve education outcomes through a collective impact approach in Newman, Port Hedland, Onslow and surrounding areas within the Shire of East Pilbara and town of Port Hedland.

The Pathways aspect of the Partnership focuses on a strengthened community-based approach to ensuring all students are prepared for life beyond school by building skills and capabilities for employment, further training or further study.

The successful applicant will have a deep belief that every student is capable of achieving success and be able to provide educational leadership to a team that ensures students are engaged and become successful learners. Specifically, you will demonstrate excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills with students, parents and staff, and the ability to develop and maintain positive and effective partnerships with external agencies, industry groups and members of the community. You will be responsible for the strategic direction of the success program and provide effective educational leadership within an empowered school culture, with a highly developed knowledge of instructional practices and change management to lead improvement in the quality of teaching and student performance outcomes. The successful applicant will continually drive improvement by providing proactive leadership that is collaborative, inspiring and supportive. Leading by example, you will model high aspirations and expectations of all staff and students.

Our focus is to establish a clear pathway of individual student aspiration through all years of compulsory secondary schooling (Years 7 to 12) through a case management, culturally responsive, wrap-around support model to assist each student to achieve to their potential.

Our guiding principles include:

  • Schools that take a strategic approach to communication and engagement with their students, staff and community generate greater buy-in, support and investment for the school and achieve enhanced learning outcomes for students
  • Students that receive targeted case management are more likely to achieve to their potential
  • Students that are engaged in setting life and career aspirations are more likely to have a clear pathway to education, training and employment
  • Students that are engaged in relevant and motivating learning opportunities that provide practical life skills are more likely to succeed and transition to more advanced training and employment
  • By engaging students earlier in mapping their aspirations, the learning pathways will assist in ensuring greater continuity and focus in their learning
