French Teacher

French Teacher

The role

Bienvenue! With some well-deserved leave upcoming in our team, we have an opportunity for a confident French teacher to join our Modern and Classical Languages department on a part-time (0.30 FTE) temporary basis for Term 2 this year.

As a skilled and positive teacher, you will be a part of the design and delivery of the curriculum with a focus on engaging your students in interactive and innovative ways. Working across a 9-day fortnightly timetable, you will enjoy the flexibility that not being required on campus when you’re not teaching brings, leaving you to enjoy an enhanced work/life balance. You’re also not restricted to just the classroom in this role – with opportunities to create strong links with other schools, working collaboratively to organise workshops, excursions and projects. The sky is the limit in what you can achieve and build with our enthusiastic and engaged students.

In return, you will join a passionate and fun team with a record of high achievements, both professionally and in consistently high student results. Emphasising group effort and promoting each other’s strengths, the team and wider College community will allow you to thrive and achieve your goals within a supportive and open environment.

Our kind of teacher

You will display the following skills and capabilities:

  • Have a demonstrated ability to teach French across Stages 4 and 5.  
  • Have an excellent understanding of NESA syllabus requirements and current NESA accreditation.
  • Be a positive and collaborative contributor to a successful department committed to improving educational outcomes.
  • Be confident in differentiating the curriculum in the classroom.
  • Have a strong understanding of the application of technology to enhance learning.
  • Be a reflective professional engaged in ongoing development and research in relation to your practice.
  • Be committed to supporting student wellbeing.

Your kind of school

Pymble people are at the heart of what the College offers its students. That’s why every teacher, operational and co-curricular staff member is valued for being the person they are, for the quality of their work, for their diverse contribution and for their wins – big and small. We express our appreciation in many ways, including through recognition programs, story sharing, celebrations, feedback and competitive remuneration.

We treasure our caring, collegiate community, which Pymble people often refer to as the ‘Pymble family’. We also appreciate that our family is not the only one in the lives of Pymble people, so we ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to supporting work-life balance, providing family benefits and contributing to community connections.

Your kind of benefits

We offer salaries above the award, ranging from $89,000 – $126,000 per annum (plus superannuation). Your salary will be based on your NESA accreditation level.

We offer a range of benefits, including:

  • mentoring groups and professional development support
  • access to our Aquatic and Fitness Centre, with free Yoga and Pilates classes
  • daily morning tea and onsite cafes
  • discounted school fees (where applicable)
  • a dedicated Staff Wellbeing team and regular social events, and
  • easy access with close public transport and onsite or nearby (street) parking.

We also provide a wide range of opportunities for Pymble people to grow personally and professionally, including through growth strategies, training and professional development, career progression, access to technology and resources, and health and wellbeing opportunities.
