Our Inclusive Education Hub boasts state of the art facilities for students with moderate to severe and profound disabilities, including a hydrotherapy pool, a sensory play space, life skills room and a therapy consult space.

At Aveley SC our dynamic team of specialist teachers and education support staff work in close partnership to deliver... individualised programmes and evidence-based practice that develops each child's educational, physical, and social skills. Teachers are required to modify curriculum and make adjustments to meet the student's individual needs. Our staff work in partnership with students, parents, and other stakeholders to provide targeted and relevant programs focusing on functional literacy and numeracy, communication, social skills, protective behaviours, and independent living skills, leading to employability skills including Workplace Learning (WPL) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses.

We are looking for flexible and reflective teachers to join our team, preferably with specialist knowledge and skills related to students with moderate to severe disability, including Intellectual Disability (ID), multiple physical disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Trauma. Experience in supporting students with co morbid diagnoses and complex communication needs is highly desirable.

Suitable applicants should be able to develop, implement and review meaningful and appropriate Individual Education Plans that not only outline functional curriculum objectives, but that support the whole child through targeted social-emotional skills, life skills and Protective Behaviours curriculum. As a Teacher in an Education Support environment, you will be responsible for positively managing a team of Education Assistants, within their classroom.

The College has an emphasis on engaging curriculum that has high levels of integrated technology embedded in lessons, opportunities for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Arts. The College utilises current research into teaching and learning and school improvement, which has led to the implementation of Explicit Direct Instruction as the College's signature pedagogy and approach to curriculum planning.
