This position reports to the Head Coach – Swimming and will commence in Term 4, 2020.

OVERVIEW OF ROLE

The sporting program at Wenona is a vibrant and central part of school life, characterised by high levels of student engagement and participation across the Independent Girls’ Schools’ Sports Association (IGSSA), Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) and community-based sporting organisations. The expansion of Aquatics activities and opportunities at the school to support the sporting program has included the establishment of the Wenona Swim Club and now a Wenona Learn to Swim (LTS) Program, both of which extend our offerings to the wider community.

Wenona aims to foster a love of sport through a focus on developing an appreciation of team spirit, healthy and balanced lifestyles, and fair play in all sporting endeavours. It is these values that need to be central to all Sport staff and their approach to developing and nurturing skill development, a measured sense of competition and a courageous spirit of adventure in our girls.

Wenona values professional services staff who demonstrate a positive and proactive approach to their work and have a willingness to participate fully in the life of the School. We look for enthusiastic, dedicated and capable staff who demonstrate initiative, good humour, and professional behaviour and support the values and aims of the School as a global learning community.

ROLE PURPOSE

The role will be a critical part of the team responsible for the leadership, organisation, planning, preparation and hands-on operational management of the LTS Program. The purpose of the Learn to Swim Coordinator is to develop and manage a high-profile and viable Wenona LTS Program.

The successful applicant will coordinate all aspects and administrative functions related to the LTS program, including coach recruitment, education, mentoring and assessment, curriculum development and delivery, program promotion, budget management and liaison with external suppliers and clientele.

There is an expectation that excellent, accurate and timely correspondence and customer service will be provided to a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

The position also contributes to broader sport department activities, carnivals and administrative support at the School with the maintenance of a positive internal culture where service, integrity and humour are valued.

As with all support staff positions, this role is central to the operation of the School and supports student learning.
