Teacher Librarian

Teacher Librarian

The role

With the success and growth of our Outdoor Education programs and our teachers having the opportunity to change their scenery and teach at our Vision Valley campus, we have the opportunity for a passionate Teacher Librarian to join our team on a full-time basis for Term 4 this year.

As either an experienced teacher looking to expand your skills into a new space, or a recent graduate passionate about research and literacy, you will work to enhance students’ learning using a variety of resources and platforms. You will demonstrate enthusiasm and have the ability to inspire others in their pursuit of learning. You will have a history of working cohesively with others and the ability to team-teach with your colleagues. A rounded teaching style is encouraged as you will also have a dedicated wellbeing class allocated to you, which enables our students to focus on the importance of holistic learning outside of curriculum work, and ensure they always see our library as a place of refuge from the outside world. Further opportunities to extend your impact could also involve supporting our Student Research or Book Clubs or contributing to other amazing Library-led initiatives.

Our kind of teacher

You will:

  • Hold relevant teaching qualifications with a background in teaching English, History, HSIE, Visual Arts, Technology Integration, or in Teacher Librarianship. 
  • Holding a degree in Teacher Librarianship or similar would be highly regarded.
  • Current NESA accreditation.
  • Have demonstrated experience leading in both pedagogy and ICT, co-designing learning with teachers. 
  • 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 $86,000 – $123,000 per annum (plus superannuation). Your salary will be based on your NESA accreditation level.

We offer a range of other benefits, including:

  • mentoring groups and professional development support
  • access to our Aquatic and Fitness Centre, with free Yoga and Pilates classes
  • daily morning tea
  • 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.
