Location Profile  

Start date is negotiable. 

We welcome passionate and imaginative educators into our learning community. We commit to supporting and valuing staff in their professional practice and growth through: 

  • Belonging to an inclusive and multicultural community
  • Knowing that together we make a difference
  • Intellectual and practical engagement in our profession
  • Teaching for conceptual understanding.

Our communities of practice are responsive to staff and student experiences and are where we work collaboratively to better understand how to best meet student learning needs. Currently these teams focus on:

  • The literacy and numeracy demands of assessments and ensuring we explicitly teach these
  • Building strong relationships with students and families developing a culture of community.

As a new member of our community, you will be supported through a structured induction program, with embedded and dedicated time release for mentoring and coaching. Being able to quickly build strong and positive relationships between staff, students, and families, is underpinned by our values of belonging and respect, and is front and centre of our practices through form teacher roles, community events and extra-curricular opportunities.

On the lands of the Wurundjeri people, our community is wonderfully diverse with over fifty different language backgrounds being represented through our families and staff. We support and celebrate this diversity with a team of multicultural and integration staff, events, and performances.  A significant proportion of our students experience challenges at home and are supported through breakfast and homework clubs, as well as a dedicated allied health team that includes counsellors, youth workers, mental health practitioners and a speech pathologist. Learning is supported through targeted fluency and tutoring programs, with learning partners ensuring Individual Learning Plans are developed and effectively implemented.

Staff at our school have many opportunities to expand on their teaching practice through leadership responsibilities and positions that promote individual and professional growth. These opportunities are reflective of our commitment to enhancing our students' personal and educational growth in the following ways:

  • Student voice and agency
  • Applied learning
  • Restorative practices
  • Community leadership
  • Inclusive and differentiated teaching and learning
  • Reflective and evaluative practices
  • Enrichment and engagement programs.

2024 will see Craigieburn Secondary College further embed our organisational design model, where Assistant Principals, Leading teachers and key coordination staff move up with their single cohort, embedding the strong relationships formed in 2023. Knowing our students and building relationships between the school and families are the keystones to ensuring that the learning and wellbeing needs of our students are addressed in a holistic way.
