Applications are invited from experienced language educators to join our inclusive and innovative community in 2021 as a teacher of Indonesian. This a a full time, fixed term position.
At Carey, we pride ourselves on providing a curriculum tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. Our focus on ‘real world learning’ also takes students well beyond the boundaries of our campus, particularly through interdisciplinary units.
We also understand that life is about more than academic success. The wellbeing of each of our students is of paramount importance at Carey and our House system ensures that each student’s welfare is carefully monitored.
Responsible to the Leader of Learning, this Secondary Teaching position aims to engage and motivate all students in the concepts of the Indonesian language. Applicants must be able to demonstrate excellence in their teaching, together with high level skills in the use of technology in the teaching, and learning process.
Studies in Languages Other Than English (LOTE) offer personal reward and enrichment, as well as promoting world understanding. The study of a language other than English is a significant part of a student's academic experience and forms an important part of the curriculum at Carey. At Carey, we teach Modern Standard Chinese (Mandarin), French and Indonesian; Spanish ab initio is available as a start-up second language in IB.
The study of the Indonesian language is very accessible for a wide range of learners. The Indonesian course at Carey aims to equip students with the language skills and cultural understandings to enable them to participate actively in the complex interactions Australia has with a nation so close, and yet so different. As well as developing increasingly sophisticated language skills, students are introduced progressively to Indonesian art forms such as wayang puppetry, batik and music. They are also exposed to Indonesian geography, history and contemporary social issues as they progress through the course.
A valid Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration is a requirement of employment for this position.
