To be employed at Foundation Christian College, all staff need to have a Pastor’s reference and our teachers must all be qualified to teach in Western Australia. This means a relevant tertiary qualification has been awarded and that a current police clearance is sighted. Teachers employed at Foundation Christian College have a range of life and educational experience.
Some teachers are in their first full year of teaching while others have decades of experience in a range of schools. However, all have been carefully selected by the Association’s Board from a competitive field of applicants as they are the best applicants to assist the College in achieving its purposes.
All staff participate in relevant professional learning throughout the year to develop and maintain teaching skills and beliefs that are reflective of current and progressive educational thought and practice.
Teachers are committed to preparing and implementing quality learning programmes for all students including students who have learning difficulties and those who are gifted and talented.
Teachers are student-focused, showing empathy, care and compassion for all students. However, all teachers have clearly defined boundaries of acceptable behaviour that is consistently monitored through their implementation of the College’s Pastoral Care Programme.
All teachers are mindful of the partnership that the College has with homes. In this regard, teachers place priority to meet and communicate with all parents as required. Parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers via the student diary, informal chats or through more formal meetings. Please ask if you would like the relevant Head of School to be present at any of these meetings.
