Leaders in Catholic schools are required to be committed and practising members of the Catholic Church as leadership of a faith community is foremost in their role. It is expected that strong and effective leaders will work with their leadership teams to establish a culture of learning through out the school.
Learning is central to the school’s purpose and there are high expectations set for students in their learning with the conviction that each student has the ability to learn and to achieve their potential with appropriate and sensitive teaching. The school recognises and affirms successful learning and high achievement.
Through regular professional learning within the Catholic system teachers are encouraged to have thorough and up-to-date knowledge of how their students learn at particular stages and within subject areas. Teachers aim to know their students well: their backgrounds, their interests, needs motivations and learning styles so that they can encourage each student to accept responsibility for their own learning and guide them in how to continue learning throughout life.
Working for a catholic school is both a rewarding and satisfying career choice. You can also keep up to date with new positions by signing up to the Catholic Schools jobs bulletin.
