This is a permanent full-time position commencing Term 2, 2021.

Belmont City College (CC) is seeking an innovative, experienced and effective leader with outstanding interpersonal skills to fill the role of Head of Learning Area (HOLA) - Science to join their leadership team.

As a member of the School Leadership Team, you will contribute to the implementation of the school’s Business Plan through participative decision making whilst promoting the school’s vision and strategic directions. It will be highly desirable for the successful applicant to have the ability to lead change, supported by their capacity to use evidence-based data to inform their decision making to implement innovation within the learning area.

You will work as part of a collegiate team and be solutions focussed. As HOLA - Science, you will continually drive improvement by providing proactive leadership that is collaborative, inspiring and supportive. The successful applicant will lead flexible and adaptive teachers who will apply differentiated instruction and explicit teaching across all year levels.

By leading a professional learning community, the HOLA - Science will ensure that science teachers develop consistent instructional practices that optimise student learning and engagement. The successful applicant will lead reflective performance development discussions with staff, based on a comprehensive knowledge of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. This may be through coaching, developing an ethos of teacher self-reflection, feedback, data analysis and a review of summative and formative assessment practices. Facilitating the effective implementation of instructional intelligences, classroom observation and student voice, you will also model highly reflective practices as both teacher and leader.

The HOLA - Science will possess a thorough understanding of the Western Australian Curriculum and Senior Secondary WACE Courses. It will be highly desirable for you to have experience in the planning, development and delivery of science-based Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) courses.
