JOB DESCRIPTION

Advertised Vacancy Number: SS/TCH672319

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

Central Midlands Senior High School (SHS) is looking for a highly skilled and enthusiastic Health and Physical Education (HPE) Teacher to join their school.

The successful applicant will ideally have the ability to teach both Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and General Physical Education Studies, as well as the experience, knowledge, skills and abilities to effectively teach the Western Australian Health and Physical Education curriculum to students in Years 7 to 12. You should exhibit effective implementation of learning technologies that make learning relevant, engaging and develop students’ contemporary skills.

As a teacher at Central Midlands SHS, you will exhibit innovation and creativity in classroom practices that cater for student diversity. It is highly desirable that the successful applicant be able to implement high impact teaching strategies and differentiation in their teaching practices. The successful applicant will be a flexible and adaptive teacher, who is able to apply the strategies of differentiated instruction and explicit teaching across all year levels. You will also have high expectations, show a commitment to excellence, use a range of pedagogies and have the ability to establish and maintain a positive classroom learning environment.

Working in collaboration with the Curriculum Manager and Lead Teacher for Physical Education, you will lead ongoing improvements in pedagogy, curriculum and programming across Years 7 to 12 and support the HPE learning area to achieve set targets in the School Business Plan.

As the successful applicant, you will possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills. You will be ‘relationships focused’ and committed to building a positive, inclusive and safe classroom that promotes in students a genuine passion for physical health and wellbeing and the successful achievement of outcomes. In this role you will have the ability to work as part of a collegiate whole school team and be solutions focussed. You will work collaboratively with your colleagues and use evidence based decision-making skills to ensure curriculum improvement is paramount.

We are seeking applicants with the knowledge and skills to utilise systemic data such as Student Achievement Information System (SAIS), National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) and Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA) to address individual student learning needs.

You will also be required to exhibit ongoing self-reflection and the ability to access and enact upon feedback from others so that quality teaching and professional engagement are demonstrated in all aspects of the teacher’s professional practice.

Our school’s goal is to prepare students to meet the challenges of the future and become positive contributors to the community. We have a small but well supported ATAR cohort, and a hallmark of Central Midlands SHS is the positive engagement between students, staff and the wider Moora community. We aim to ensure that every student develops and applies resiliency and problem-solving techniques that enable them to be confident and successful learners who are able to set goals and work towards the achievements of these.

Located in Moora, only 172 kms north of Perth, Central Midlands SHS is a vibrant educational community, offering a wide range of academic and vocational subjects for approximately 200 students from Year 7 to Year 12. Students at Central Midlands SHS are motivated to achieve their best and to realise their potential in a values-rich environment. All students have access to innovative, flexible pathways for learning. One major attraction of the school is the small class size: a low student-to-staff ratio ensures plenty of individual attention and assistance, both in and out of the classroom. The school has highly successful and important relationships with Moora Residential College, Central Regional TAFE as well as local businesses and industry.

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.
