The Hester Hornbrook Academy (HHA) provides flexible education and learning options, including VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and VETiS (Vocational Education and Training in Schools). Recognising that mainstream education is not suitable for all young people, our programs are driven by the personal pursuits of students and integrate wellbeing and life skills approaches. Teachers and Youth workers work together to support students. We have classes and outreach learning options for students who are young mums, currently in or leaving out of home care, experiencing homelessness, or who have been disengaged from mainstream education.
The VETis Community Services trainer will form a part of an education team and be the primary teacher/trainer for the Certificate II in Community Services. The Trainer is responsible for organising and implementing an instructional program in accordance with VCAL and VET curriculum and registration requirements. The Educator is expected to collaboratively share leadership of the classroom with the Youth Worker, including decision making authority. A positive, professional and mutually respectful relationship with the Youth Worker is critical to the success of the model of education delivery.
As skilled Educators at this level will operate under general direction within clear guidelines following established work practices and documented priorities and work with our VETis team to develop VET hours for our students.
Please refer to the position description for the full duties and key selection criteria.
We offer a competitive remuneration package including an attractive salary, access to tax-effective salary packaging arrangements and supportive work/life balance provisions. HHA recognizes the importance of investing in the training, learning and development of our staff.
