Education Facilitator FTE 0.7

Education Facilitator FTE 0.7

An exciting opportunity exists for a capable and passionate leader to take on this position, commencing January 2021.

Tarremah is a well-established, vibrant independent school situated on Mouheneener country, fifteen minutes south of Hobart, in close proximity to a nature reserve, beaches, and kunyani (Mt Wellington). Having recently turned thirty, the school is governed by a dynamic and capable group of community members and managed collaboratively by an Executive group consisting of Faculty representatives, the Business Manager, Education Administrator and School Chair following a republican model. All those in positions of authority are called upon to aspire to a spirit of service inspired by ideals of inclusivity, the cultivation of the individual and care for the collective ‘good’.

Tarremah offers classes from Kindergarten to Class 10 and has a school population of around 245 students. Our location allows us to take advantage of Tasmania’s wilderness, world heritage areas, coastlines and indigenous cultural sites. The city of Hobart offers a vibrant cultural life that rivals larger cities, while Hobart’s smaller size makes more of this culture accessible to everyone.

The Education Facilitator will be responsible for overseeing and facilitating the delivery, enrichment and integrity of the School’s Steiner curriculum and pedagogy. Working closely with the Education Administrator and School Chair, the Education Facilitator will sit on the School Executive and advise on education matters.

The successful candidate will focus on the mentoring, professional development and improvement of teaching practice and understanding of Steiner pedagogy. It offers an exciting opportunity for a passionate and experienced individual with high level leadership, communication and management skills who can demonstrate the expertise and proficiency needed to carry out these duties.

We are looking for someone who can operate in a collegial manner in our republican structure, and who can inspire and guide teachers, support staff and school community to work collectively towards the delivery of Steiner education.

The successful applicant will need to be eligible for registration as a teacher in Tasmania and for a Tasmanian Working with Vulnerable People card.

Please provide the following in your application:

  • A cover letter introducing yourself and expressing why you are interested in the position;
  • A document addressing the selection criteria;
