EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR Primary School Co-Ordinator 0.4 FTE Negotiable to a full time position

Alice Springs Steiner School

Closing Date 15 February, 2018

Come and join us in the only truly desert, remote Steiner school in Australia! Our School is nestled below the breathtaking MacDonnell Ranges in the centre of our great continent.  

We are seeking expression of interests from applicants with experience teaching in a Steiner School to become our Primary School Co Coordinator as part of our school management team. Ideally we are seeking a former class teacher – having taken a class from class 1 to class 7 who also has at least 5 years school management experience.

You would be able to relate well to all staff, students and parents and generally inspire leadership within the primary faculty.  

We value applicants who are team players with excellent communication, organisational and planning skills. Marketing experience and artistic ability would also complement this role. This is a position that offers flexible employment from part time to an option of full time for the right candidate. You would report to the School Principal.

Our school has grown rapidly over 21 years from playgroup to Class 6 and will offer Class 7 in 2019 through to Class 12 in 2024. We have single stream classes and are continuing our building program for the high school with a new Master Plan having been developed.

We follow the NT Public Sector – Teacher and Education 2014-2017 Enterprise Agreement as amended, which is similar to all Australian States. We offer generous teacher PD as part of our package of up to $2000.00 pay for approved projects. There are also taxation benefits available for working and living in a remote area – yet Alice Springs is a lively cosmopolitan town with strong indigenous culture, theatre, music, vibrant arts community, cafes, restaurants and all services.
