Special Needs Education Assistant

An exciting opportunity has become available for qualified Christian Special Needs Education Assistant to join our well established and growing school community at our Kenwick Primary Campus, starting in Term 3, 2024.

Are you someone who has a genuine love for Christian education, children, and their families? If so, this is the role for you!

About Rehoboth

As the first Christian parent-governed school in Western Australia, we are pioneers of distinctly Christian education. Our rich heritage stretches back almost sixty years; we have learned a fair bit in that time and are always seeking ways to improve and innovate.

Rehoboth exists to partner with families in their God-given task of nurturing and educating their children. You will be joining a team who really believe in their mission to lead students to think and live for the glory of God in every aspect of their lives.

About the Position
You will need to perform non-teaching duties to assist the teaching staff in the Primary School, providing care and supervision for students including those with special needs who require learning support.

Our Special Needs Assistants support students with a range of additional needs, including students with Down Syndrome, ASD, ADHD, anxiety and language difficulties. We are looking for someone who has previous experience with special needs students.

This position is covering a maternity-leave position, which is full-time and on a fixed-term contract.

What You Need to Succeed
We look for people who are a great cultural fit. Rehoboth is a community of Christians – parents and staff alike – and we prioritise supporting one another in our spiritual walks and encouraging students to explore their faith and discover their God-given gifts.

Because of the deeply Christian nature of our College, we consider all staff to be role models to students, no matter what position they hold. We take your active involvement in a local Protestant Christian church, a deeply committed Christian lifestyle, and ability to articulate your personal Christian faith as evidence of your desire to help build a vibrant Christian community at Rehoboth.

You will also need to be an exceptional communicator and have an outstanding ability to work collaboratively with staff and students. This is where your pastoral heart and passion for teaching will shine.

Here are the essential criteria for the position:
