We are an independent non-religious progressive school just to the north of Melbourne, and we're looking for a teacher's aide. This is a particular position, to look after a very young child who has difficulties managing his behaviour – he has a short attention span, little apparent empathy with others, and at this stage of his life needs an adult to help him put boundaries in place.
We need someone who has experience in a role of this nature. He is a very likeable kid, with a terrifically supportive mother who backs the school in the measures we take, but he does need close and sometimes strict supervision.
Our classes are small, bureaucracy is minimal, and the school is energised and lively. We have lots of space, and we are happy for him to be taken outside for a walk or a run or any other kind of break when appropriate – in other words we are not authoritarian, but at the same time we are not a 'free, anything goes' kind of school.
Living in the Macedon Ranges would be a geographic advantage if you are interested in applying for this job. Applications by email only please, sent by March 27,and including names and contact details for three professional referees.
