An exciting opportunity exists for a professional educator to join a driven and dedicated team of education and operational staff that will see Toorak College embark on its 149th year in 2023. Steeped in tradition, the staff and students of Toorak College are passionate about celebrating the School’s history and use this same passion to look to the future with a sense of empowerment and desire to succeed.

This key leadership appointment comes at a time when the school is in the final stages of implementing its ambitious “Towards 150” Strategic Plan. The Deputy Head of Senior School – Personal Growth will play a pivotal role in implementing the School’s vision and values and will recognise the fundamental correlation between personal and academic growth to maximise the individual personal growth and success of each student from Year 7 to 12.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity for a teacher looking to expand on their pastoral practice and have direct positive impacts on the personal growth of each of our students every day. Leading the Heads of Year and working closely with their academic counterpart, the successful candidate will build capacity in their team and work in an environment that challenges the status quo to achieve the best possible student outcomes.” Fiona Wines, Head of Senior School, Deputy Principal.

Specifically, we are seeking an experienced educator to commence at the start of 2023 in a permanent, full time capacity. The successful candidate will possess:

  • An ability to facilitate and promote pastoral care and personal growth in each year level (Years 7 to 12) where the approach is fully integrated between the year levels to support, inspire and challenge students to explore new horizons, develop resilience and live the School’s values every day;
  • Demonstrated exemplary classroom practice with experience in programs from Years 7 -12;
  • Demonstrated experience in personal growth and pastoral care implementation in the senior years, including Restorative Practices.
  • A well-informed understanding of contemporary learning practices, research and pedagogy;
  • A desire to actively contribute to key leadership and strategic direction; and
  • An ability to mentor and inspire outstanding staff who are passionate about education.
