  • Providing high-quality learning support in accordance with Kristin’s values, guiding principles, and curriculum frameworks
  • Strengthening the capability of teachers in the support of the learning of students
  • Assessing, collaboratively planning, supporting and monitoring the implementation of individual (or group) learning plans for gifted and talented students.

To be successful you will need the following:

  • A fully registered and qualified teacher
  • Ideally have post-graduate qualifications in an area of specialist teaching (gifted and talented education), or the ability/desire to attain these with the support of the school
  • Ideally a minimum of five years teaching experience and a deep knowledge of child development, learning and behaviour with respect to both enhanced learning and gifted and talented learners
  • A strong understanding of a range of needs and learning challenges and their implications for daily functioning for students and for teaching and learning in the context of a high performing independent school
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills and an ability to work effectively with students and their families and teachers across a diverse range of settings
  • A positive strengths-based approach to working with students, staff and parents.
