Bunbury Regional Community College (BRCC) is both a new school and a new kind of school.
BRCC will open its doors in Bunbury in 2018 for students in years 10 and 11 and will expand to year 12 in 2019. The school will be deliberately small with a maximum of 30 students in 2018 and growing to around 90 students over the next few years.
It will be funded as a CARE (Curriculum and Re-engagement in Education) School and will focus on working with students who have not been successful learners.
The school will use the Big Picture Education design. It will be based on the belief that the unique interests, needs and abilities of each student must be at the centre of their educational program.
Whilst at BRCC students will:
be encouraged and helped to develop the literacy and numeracy skills that are needed for future success;
have opportunities to explore and develop their interests both with their teacher in the classroom and with mentors in the community; and
study a range of certificates, for example in horticulture, community service, business and others.
Students will complete year 12 exceptionally well prepared for their futures.
Who do we want?
We are seeking dedicated teachers to join our unique community and to become an Advisory Teachers (1.0 FTE plus 0.5 FTE).
We want people who are willing to share their interests, passions and stories with the students.
We need people who are enthused and excited by finding out what their students are interested in and developing learning plans that help each one grow and move towards their goals.
We require people who help each and every student to matter, who can see and value their culture, talents and interests, who can help them fit by changing the school and classroom and who can help them work with family and community support.
Overall, we need someone who never gives up on any student.
Each Advisory Class is a small community within the school. As an Advisory Teacher you will work with your advisory students most days and most of each day. In this way Advisory is like an extended family. Students are expected to become respectful, caring and productive members of the Advisory group.
The Advisory teacher’s role is to teach, inspire, provoke, bond, organise and manage learning. You will negotiate student Learning Plans, convene meetings with students, parents and mentors, help students develop extended projects and prepare for Exhibitions. Advisory teachers take responsibility for student learning across the curriculum including literacy and numeracy. If you are the right person you will get the opportunity to work with this group of young people through to the end of year 12.
Our culture embraces diversity and innovation. Working for us will provide you with opportunities for growth and development along with a competitive salary and a range of benefits. Salary to be negotiated dependent upon experience.
If your aim is to make a positive difference to young people’s lives; we would like to hear from you!
