Location Profile
Camberwell High School opened in 1941 with an enrolment of 350 girls and boys. Today we have 1200 students who continue to thrive in a school community which promotes contemporary learning and takes pride in its long history and rich traditions.

The school’s motto Disco Consulere Aliis (Learning to be considerate of others) underpins all that we do. Combined with our school values of achievement, creativity, respect and responsibility we focus on developing learners who excel, have high expectations of themselves in all they do and are ready to make an impact within the global community as active and engaged citizens.

A key document that outlines the school’s educational vision is the Camberwell High School vision for learning. As a school community we value learning that is transformative, focused on growth, dynamic and built on positive relationships and respect.

Teachers work collaboratively to ensure that they provide opportunities for students as individuals to explore ideas in depth, learn in different ways and at different levels. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and track their own growth and through collaboration and negotiation with teachers and their peers explore ideas, build understanding and develop skills.

To be a successful learner at school and to flourish in today’s fast paced world our learners need to be equipped with skills which enable them to be responsive and adaptable. The school has developed a school wide approach to doing this which we refer to as the learning dispositions. Teachers work with students on building these learning behaviours and approaches and they provide regular feedback to students and parents about their development.

We are a diverse community with varied perspectives and work as a community of staff, students and parents to develop agreement about the key attributes we believe our learners should have. The CHS Learner (read more below) captures the essence of what we are striving for in successfully educating each individual graduate of Camberwell High School.

The school’s Strategic Plan sets out the key areas of development for the school with specific improvement targets. The document provides a framework for the School Council and the entire school community to use to ensure that we are continually improving learning outcomes for students. The current Strategic Plan (2018-2021) can be read in full.

The Annual Implementation Plan is written each year with reference to the Strategic Plan. Specific targets are set for the year to assist the school in working toward meeting Strategic Plan goals. (Read the 2020 AIP)

Responsibilities

Purpose:
The main purpose of this role is to work collaboratively with the Careers and other key staff to ensure students’ learning progression through Years 9-12 includes a range of experiences to assist in establishing pathways for their future and to achieve a positive transition to work and/or further study.

The establishment of partnerships with tertiary and industry is an increasingly important aspect of school’s work as non ATAR entry, internships with work places and early entry to tertiary sectors including through VET and micro credentials become part of the secondary school offerings.

The school’s establishment of Pathways in Technology (P-Tech) in 2019, Launch in 2020 and the focus on STEAM and cybersecurity have created partnerships with Box Hill TAFE, Swinburne and Melbourne Universities and 4 industry partners and these need to be maintained and additional opportunities sought and managed by a liaison officer.

Managing the successful integration of partners into the Futures and Launch lessons, providing 50 students with individual mentors from industry and tertiary will be essential to this. It is envisaged that this mentoring will include work experience blocks and internships in holiday periods in Years 10, 11 and 12.

VCAL will be absorbed into the VCE over the next few years and students’ courses in the senior years will have the potential to become a hybrid of vocational and work placement combined with more traditional learning/VCE at school. This role will ensure that this amalgamation is successful for the school.

Accountabilities:

  • To abide by the school’s code of conduct which expects and requires staff and visitors to ensure the protection of children. This role requires that industry and tertiary environments where students are visitors are also assessed and monitored for safety
  • To fully support the school’s Child Safe Policy for:
    • the prevention of student abuse by identifying risks early
    • taking all allegations and concerns seriously

  • In partnership with Careers, manage the amalgamation of VCAL with VCE according to VCAA directed requirements
  • Manage all VCAL, VET, ASBA, work experience, work placements, internships and the oversight of contractual arrangements
  • Oversee all industry and tertiary partnerships, ensuring a high level of engagement between the school and the students and actively seek new opportunities and ensure safe environments are in place
  • Promote STEAM and cybersecurity pathways with an emphasis on encouraging female participation at school (within Launch) and beyond
  • Actively seek out opportunities for students to undertake courses/micro credentials and short courses in STEAM and cybersecurity and connect with and ensure the successful enrolment and progress of interested and capable students
  • Work closely with Launch and Futures Teams of teachers to determine opportunities within the curriculum for partners to participate
