  • Drive contemporary practice in teaching and learning to maximise student engagement in a supportive learning environment meeting a broad range of needs
  • Build quality relationships with students that empower them to reach their potential and equip them for life
  • Implement systems and structures that ensure the effective ongoing management and further development of the school

This exciting opportunity will appeal to an energetic and inspiring educational leader who has a passion for student education outside a mainstream setting. An attractive remuneration package will be offered to the preferred candidate.
