Location Profile





School description



Belvoir Special School is a multi-mode specialist school in Wodonga which provides a high quality educational program for students with mild, moderate and profound intellectual disabilities. Around 45% of our students have a co-morbid diagnosis of Autism as well as an intellectual disability. Students range in age from five to eighteen years of age.



In 2014 the school moved to a brand new purpose built facility which has been constructed for a peak enrolment of around 220 students. Student population is expected to be around 200 for the start of the 2020 school year.





To attend the school students must meet the state-wide eligibility criteria and are enrolled at Belvoir Special School after consultation with parents, previous schools or kindergartens and appropriate paramedic personnel if needed, in accordance with the school’s documented enrolment policy.



Our school’s philosophy is reflected in its programs and based on the belief that children learn best in a co-operative environment that is happy, challenging, supportive and non-threatening. Belvoir is a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support School and has developed a school culture that is reflected by the ideals of SW-PBS.



As a school we encourage active involvement and participation of students, staff, parents, caregivers, volunteers and the wider community.



Belvoir is committed to develop lifelong learners who are encouraged to pursue their individual strengths and talents. Our aim is to enable all students who graduate from Belvoir to live an ‘enviable life’ which allows then to achieve all their dreams. To do this we require committed teachers who see the special characteristics of all of our students and will strive to ensure each individual feels safe, is confident and valued as a person.





Selection Criteria





SC1 Capacity to undertake routine support tasks across a range of functions in one or more work areas within a school environment.



SC2 Demonstrated capacity to communicate effectively with members of the school community including students and the capacity to provide support and/or attendant care to students where necessary.



SC3 Demonstrated proficiency in the use of office systems, software or technical equipment as relevant to the position.



SC4 Capacity to work cooperatively with a range of people including teachers, education support, students and parents.



SC5 A commitment to professional learning and growth.





Role





Undertakes routine tasks that are usually carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established and direction is readily available.



Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices. Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction. Assistance is readily available when problems arise. An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.



Does not carry responsibility for the work of others. More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.



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.



Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1. Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.
