The central goal of MacKillop Family Services is to support, to foster hope and to promote justice for children, young people and their families, particularly those who experience distress, disadvantage and abuse. Education is central to that goal.
Children in Out-of-Home Care are a high priority client group of MacKillop Education, as are adolescents at risk of leaving school without vocational skills. MacKillop Education currently provides education support to these young people, through outreach programs from three sites: Geelong, Maidstone, and Warrnambool. We offer education support through our Children in Residential Care Programs (CIRC) and the Western Education Support Team Program (WEST).
Our schools in Geelong (Foundation – VCAL), Maidstone (Years 3-6), and Caulfield (currently focussed on the primary years), cater for students who are disengaged, or at risk of disengaging, from education. The education programs provide flexible learning pathways and they equip participants with the skills to either remain at MacKillop School, re-enter mainstream school or, for senior students, to take up employment or further education options, including traineeships and apprenticeships.
The Leader of ICT is responsible to drive the delivery of ICT services and programs that reflect contemporary best practice and achieves optimal outcomes for MacKillop’s strategic education and operational requirements. Central location to be discussed.
MacKillop is committed to being a child safe organisation. Applicants will be required to undergo a criminal records checks and hold a valid employment working with children check to be successful.
