History and Community and Religious Education (CARE) Teacher

Kew, Victoria 
  • Commencing Term 2, 2021
  • Parental leave replacement, part time position
  • Innovative and creative team


Applications are invited from suitably qualified and enthusiastic educators to join our Humanities team for the fixed term, part time position of History and Community and Religious Education (CARE) teacher.  This parental leave replacement position is part time 0.6FTE, and will commence Term 2, 2021 to the end of the academic year. 

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 Humanities and Community and Religious Education (CARE). History will be a key focus of this position. Applicants must be able to demonstrate excellence in their teaching, together with high level skills in the use of technology, and in the teaching process.

Education in Humanities prepares students for their future by broadening their understanding of their world, past and present.  Through the study of History students gain an awareness and understanding of the immense variety of human experiences through time.  This is important for their development, both as individuals and members of society.  Where appropriate and possible, an interdisciplinary approach is encouraged, in particular linking in with English, Geography, Politics, CARE and English.

Community and Religious Education (CARE) forms a core part of the curriculum at Carey. The curriculum does not aim to instil a particular perspective in our students, but rather aims to provide them with an understanding of faith in our community and with concepts, language and skills to evaluate and discuss faith issues. Throughout the learning process, students are encouraged to explore and question as they develop a personal understanding of spirituality and their own spiritual journey.

All teaching staff employed at Carey Baptist Grammar School must hold a valid Victorian Institute Teaching (VIT) registration as a requirement of employment.
