Location Profile
Belmont High School is a large single campus co-educational secondary school south of the Barwon River in the regional city of Geelong with enrolments of 1268 students. We share boundaries with Roslyn Primary School and the Barwon Valley School (a specialist setting) and have had increasing cooperation and sharing with both in recent years. Camp programs operate at the school owned Tanybryn Campsite in the beautiful Otway Ranges. We have onsite access to BioLAB (the Victorian BioScience Education Centre) that specializes in human performance and sport.

A vertical House (pastoral care) system operates for all year levels and is pivotal in delivering management, leadership and wellbeing for students and teachers. The Year 9 Strive Program also supports pastoral care for students with the provision of a significant teacher, and community and pathways based curriculum, as well as a camping program. We are an RTO to support the delivery of VET programs at the school for our own and other school students and offer students a VCAL program.

Significant leadership opportunities for students at both junior and senior levels of the school exist and an extensive co-curricular program supported by teachers exists to value add to students’ experiences. This includes many opportunities for overseas travel increasingly with a community focus, including World Challenge. The school has also consistently been the top school in the Geelong region in inter school carnivals and team sport and has a very large and successful music and performance program.

The student population has become more culturally diverse over the past five years. The international student program adds to the cultural mix with students beginning their study in Australia with a school based EAL program in our English Language Centre prior to studying at appropriate year levels with mainstream students

We have experienced continued growth in enrolments as a result of interest in our programs, and pathways at the senior end of the school as well as our growing international fee paying program.

The school is accredited to offer a Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program, which has now operated for a number of years, and the school operates a student support centre for funded and unfunded students who require additional literacy and numeracy support. The Middle Years program caters for students in Years 7 and 8 and provides an innovative and engaging curriculum and pedagogy with a literacy and numeracy focus and individual learning plans for students. We offer two languages (Italian and Indonesian) both of which are growing in enrolment and both of which have sister school partnerships that see reciprocal visits.

A small but active parent association conduct monthly meetings that see guest speakers from program areas in the school give regular presentations, and our School Council regularly sees the need for an election. We employ a School Chaplain with a combination of local and government funding to support our Student Wellbeing Officer in the Student Wellbeing Center. A Health Centre staffed by a Nurse is connected to the student wellbeing area.

The Leadership consists of the Principal and 3 Assistant Principals with discrete portfolios and 12 Educational Leaders – 8 House Leaders and 4 Leaders of Learning. All Educational Leaders have a shared responsibility for addressing the goals of the AIP and SSP.

Selection Criteria
KSC 1. Evidence of high standards and expertise in nursing, with a strong commitment to professional learning.

KSC 2. Demonstrated exemplary written and oral communication skills, including the ability to utilise computer software products effectively.

KSC 3. High level ability to work cooperatively and to a professional standard with all members of a school community - parents, students, staff.

KSC 4. Demonstrated experience in supporting children and adults in a caring and compassionate manner, yet maintaining professionalism and discretion.

KSC 5. Evidence of experience in effective records management, activity/injury recording, assessment and care planning.

KSC 6. Demonstrated experience and abaility to work in a team environment.

The role of the Nurse is to carry out an initial intake and assessment of students with medical conditions, refer students to the Wellbeing team. The team consists of a mental health practitioner, a school counselor, a wellbeing officer, a nurse and external services operating within the school environment. The role serves as a crucial element in responding and facilitating access for students to the services they require in a timely way.

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services. The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.

Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved. This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy. Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3. Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility. Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases. Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.

This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years. Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered. Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor. Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

This is a job share position, with the other Nurse working 3 days a week and this position being the other 2 days a week (Thursday & Friday).

Under routine direction performs structured tasks which require the understanding and application of basic rules and procedures.
