Not your ordinary teaching position. Break free of the classroom and push the boundaries on how you support young people to learn. Out Teach works to reengage young people with educational opportunities. Work one-on-one with young people who are out of school, and facing challenges like learning difficulties, mental illness, homelessness and inter-generational poverty.
We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.
In this four-day per week, max-term position (until December 2019, with view for extension) based in Hobart, you will support young people to build capacity to continue an educational pathway. Delivering learning programs in outdoor and informal settings, you will work with each young person's individual needs, encouraging them to overcome personal barriers and reignite their passion for learning. You will be part of the Tasmanian Programs Team, reporting to the Youth Programs Team Leader.
…You can easily engage with disadvantaged or vulnerable young people through your compassion and understanding of their situation. You have always been the influential teacher and build trust and rapport naturally. You have experience delivering educational programs for students from a range of backgrounds and your infectious enthusiasm for your job encourages engagement in your activities.
It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:
At Save the Children, we seek a workforce that is as diverse as our society - in race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality, cultures and beliefs - and reflects the communities we work in.

Save the Children Australia is a child-safe organisation. All employees are required to undergo a National Police Check, a Working with Children Check where necessary, and sign our Child Safeguarding Policy and Code of Conduct.
