  • developing the ethos, identity and structures of the Senior Years such that they meet the needs of students and staff;
  • interacting widely with colleagues, teachers, parents and other key stakeholders to ensure appropriate behaviours, practices and support;
  • facilitating the implementation of the VCE curriculum, academic program and subject selections;
  • leading, coaching and developing the Senior Years staff cohorts;
  • overseeing the pastoral care and wellbeing of all students and encouraging active parent involvement in student learning;
  • teaching within the Senior Years program.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced educational leaders with excellent communication, leadership, mentoring, coaching, strategic planning and change management skills complemented by warmth and integrity.  A genuine motivation to embrace the Christian ethos of the College will be vital, as will the energy and passion necessary to engage with, champion and inspire this vibrant and thriving College community.
