Job Description

Alia College is seeking a part-time (FTE 0.28) French teacher for our Junior (combined Year 7 & 8), and Year 9 class, commencing as soon as possible.

This time fraction will be timetabled over two days and may be suitable for someone looking to continue employment as a teacher in a low capacity while managing other commitments. Or perhaps someone looking to ease their way back into teaching or looking to semi-retire from teaching.

Alia College is a small, dynamic, alternative, co-educational secondary school in Hawthorn East and is sometimes described as progressive, or democratic. The school has academic aims and a commitment to holistic approaches, supporting self-expression, creativity, problem-solving and acceptance of responsibility consistent with levels of maturity.

A key feature of Alia College is open communication between staff and students. While maintaining a high level of professionalism the relationships that Alia staff form with students mean that staff often become a part of a student’s educational journey, which can be a very rewarding experience for staff.

The culture and atmosphere at Alia College is quite different compared to mainstream schools and therefore we strongly encourage that you gain an understanding of the school by reading through the school’s website before you apply www.alia.vic.edu.au.

At Alia College class sizes are generally small, teachers and students are on first name basis and Teachers shape the curriculum and work closely with students in the classroom.

The successful applicant/s must have a current VIT registration. They will have a sound knowledge of the French course and have a dynamic and flexible approach to engaging students’ interests and energies and will potentially be able to think outside the box when working with students. They will also have a willingness to engage in aspects of Alia outside regular classes, such as excursions, presentation nights, camps, homeroom, and information sessions. 

Applications will be reviewed as they are received.

Applicants may be invited to the school prior to the application closing date, therefore please submit your application as soon as possible by sending your resumé and cover letter, addressed to Bob Morgan (Principal), via email to info@alia.vic.edu.au and quote job ID# 121

When submitting your resumé and a cover letter, please clearly identify your:

  • teaching methods
  • expertise and experience

Shortlisted applicants are invited to visit the school and assist in a class, attend a homeroom meeting, and perhaps teach a class, before making a firm commitment to the school.
