About the role

About Parade College

Parade College is a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition. The College aims to help young men grow into well-rounded individuals who will make a meaningful contribution to society. In a vibrant learning community, students are encouraged to explore and develop their talents to the fullest and aim for excellence in all their endeavours. 

Parade College is the oldest Edmund Rice School in Australia, dating back to 1871, and has a proud history of excellence in the education and pastoral care of young men. As a long-standing Catholic school for boys in the Edmund Rice tradition, Parade College strives to be a learning community that offers best practice education and pastoral care to its students to foster fullness of life and holistic growth for all. Parade offers a multitude of curriculum options for boys whatever their interest may be; from academic, sporting, music, visual arts and trade options.

The College is pleased to announce, our VCE Vocational Major (VCE VM) program at Parade College will become co-educational in 2025. The College will welcome full-time female student enrolments for the first time in our long history at Year 11.  Starting in Term 1 2025, our VCE Vocational Major program, based at our Preston campus, will be expanding our student offerings by introducing a new Tertiary Pathways Program. The Tertiary Pathways Program will include a second stream of our highly successful Sport Academy, along with a new Business Academy. Both academies will provide a bespoke educational opportunity that will allow students to gain direct entry into a number of undergraduate tertiary courses at La Trobe University upon completion of the two-year course.  (This exciting initiative is subject to final approval by VRQA)

The Position

The House Leader has the primary responsibility for the care, wellbeing, academic progress and guidance of the students in the House.  Whilst all teachers have an important pastoral care role, the House Leader has a key role in providing a pastoral focus for students in their House. All relationships and procedures within the House will reflect Parade College’s belief in the centrality of pastoral care, student wellbeing and restorative processes to ensure good teaching and learning and appropriate student outcomes.

The House system is also expected to give strong support and expression to the spiritual and social justice aims of the College. The role of House Leader is to demonstrate leadership in the spiritual life of the College, actively promote school policies and procedures, model excellence in teaching, encourage peers in the development of best practice, and foster a sense of community and care that supports the academic progress of students, within a team situation with other House Leaders.

The House Leaders are part of a team charged with the implementation of student wellbeing policies and the development of community at the year level. This team focuses upon developing strategies that respond to student needs and which are consistent with the College mission.

Applications are invited for House Leader positions, including the Student Wellbeing Leader (Years 11-12) position based at the Preston Campus, from suitably qualified, highly motivated and innovative leaders with excellent organisational skills and a passion for Catholic Education in the Edmund Rice Tradition and the safety and wellbeing of children.

The successful candidates for these positions will commence January 2025.  The leadership appointment is for a two year term, with an ongoing teaching position associated with these appointments. This leadership position attracts a Position of Leadership Allowance and generous time release per cycle.
