Community and Religious Education (CARE) Teacher

Applications are invited from suitably qualified, experienced and motivated professionals for the position of Community and Religious Education (CARE) Teacher at our Kew Campus, commencing Term 1, 2020.

Community and Religious Education (CARE) forms a core part of the curriculum at Carey. The curriculum does not aim to instil a particular perspective in our students, but rather aims to provide them with an understanding of faith in our community and with concepts, language and skills to evaluate and discuss faith issues. Throughout the learning process, students are encouraged to explore and question as they develop a personal understanding of spirituality and their own spiritual journey.

At Carey, we pride ourselves on providing a curriculum tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. Our focus on ‘real world learning’ also takes students well beyond the boundaries of our campus, particularly through interdisciplinary units.  We also understand that life is about more than academic success. The wellbeing of each of our students is of paramount importance at Carey and our House system ensures that each student’s welfare is carefully monitored. 

Responsible to the Leader of Learning and Learning Area Coordinator, this Secondary Teaching position aims to engage and motivate all students in the concepts of Community and Religous Education (CARE). Applicants must be able to demonstrate excellence in their teaching, together with high level skills in the use of technology in the teaching, and learning process.

Teachers at Carey are professional people and this is reflected in their teaching and in their relationships with students, parents and other staff members.
