Inclusive Learning Officer
A permanent part-time (0.4 FTE) position (Thursdays and Fridays) commencing February 2019
The Learning Support Officer (LSO) supports the mission, vision and values of the College community and the College’s Good Samaritan Benedictine tradition where hospitality, peace and justice, stewardship and community are key. The Rule of St Benedict gives guidance in this mission- ‘arrange all things so that the strong have something to strive for and the weak have nothing to run from’ (RB: Ch. 64:19). The Learning Support Officer works collaboratively with Inclusive Learning staff, students, parents and teachers to meet the individual learning needs of students.
The position requires a person flexible in approach, who is able to work with a range of students and support their individual needs. The LSO will be able to implement strategies to suit each student under the guidance and direction of the Inclusive Learning Coordinator. Encouraging students to develop a sense of responsibility towards their own education will be a high priority. LSOs have no direct supervisory duties and in general, are not responsible for students without a teacher being present.
The Learning Support Officer supports classroom teachers with tasks essential to support students by:
• Assisting student learning and participation
• Assisting with the implementation of Individual Learning Plans (ILPs)
• Facilitating small group learning
Relevant courses will be offered to skill Learning Support Officers in the areas of literacy, numeracy and comprehension.
