Tabor Education Liaison Roles - Contracted Position
Tabor is a Private Higher Education Provider
As number 1 in the nation (QILT) for Initial Teacher Education, the Education faculty provides high quality Bachelor of Education and Master of Teaching courses, and teacher development through a Masters of Education. We are dedicated to students’ academic growth but also their character and spiritual growth. Our degrees are nationally accredited and underpinned by a Christian worldview.
Tabor liaisons perform the vital role of supporting the College’s preservice teachers, leading up to and during their professional experience placements in schools. To do this, Tabor liaisons work closely with our preservice teachers and Professional Experience Office staff, as well as facilitating links between preservice teachers, their mentor teachers, school coordinators and Tabor staff.
This contracted position entails four visits to each preservice teacher during their professional experience. Two of these visits provide opportunity for observation of the preservice teacher and for providing timely and accurate feedback about their practice, progress and capacity. Another two visits involve facilitating meetings with each preservice teacher, their mentor teacher and the school coordinator to map progress, growth and future priorities.
Professional experience placements are scheduled for Term 2 (Weeks 1-4) and Term 3 (Weeks 6-8). We may assign a number of preservice teachers to each Tabor liaison. Tabor liaisons must be available and accessible for preservice teachers to contact them throughout the weeks of the professional experience placement and also be available to visit the school as negotiated with preservice teachers. They will be required to submit a one page report for each preservice teacher at the conclusion of the professional experience block.
The Tabor liaison role would suit teachers with current or recent teaching experience and who preferably hold registration as teachers with the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia. Teachers who have been previously registered and employed as a teacher and/or school leader, who have a Department of Human Services Working with Children Check and a current Responding to Abuse and Neglect – Education and Care Certificate are also encouraged to apply.
Tabor is an ITE provider with a strong Christian ethos and heritage. Our liaisons are expected to support our Christian ethos and to promote the work of the College through their interactions with our partner schools and the broader community.
The current rate paid is $160.00 per preservice teacher per professional experience placement, plus reimbursement for mileage. This is not a payroll position.
To communicate your interest in the role, please forward a copy of your CV by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, Please be sure to include the names and details of two professional referees.
Applications are encouraged from people who share Tabor’s Christian ethos.
Dr Tracey Price, Dean of the Faculty of Education
