KU Children’s Services received Australian Government funding to operate a state-wide Inclusion Agency in Queensland in partnership with Cairns and District Child Care Development Association Inc. as part of the new Inclusion Support Programme (ISP). The ISP “supports mainstream ECCC services to improve their capacity and capability to provide quality inclusive practices, address participation barriers and include children with additional needs alongside their typically developing peers”.
The Inclusion Support Programme is underpinned by a set of guiding principles that include: inclusion; equity of access; national consistency; an integrated approach; a strengths-based approach; self-sustaining and resilience of ECCC services.
Role of the Inclusion Professional
The Inclusion Professional supports educators in federally funded children’s services to increase their capacity and capability to embed inclusive practices within their service. This is achieved through identifying current strengths, capacity and capability of educators to ensure that service delivery is relevant to educator and service needs. Inclusion Professionals work to promote a clear understanding of inclusion, which focuses on all children being seen as capable and contributing in their environment. The position involves working closely with other Inclusion Agency team members to deliver inclusion support which is flexible and responsive to the needs of ECCC services within the jurisdiction and in accordance with the ISP Guidelines.
To be successful in this position, you will have the following essential criteria:
- Bachelor Degree in Education (Early/Middle childhood) with a minimum of five years’ experience in ECCC services (birth to 12 years).
- Thorough understanding of the differences between inclusion, integration, micro exclusion and macro exclusion.
- Demonstrated current knowledge of the early/middle childhood sector, including knowledge of the National Quality Framework.
- Ability to facilitate change through the use of reflective practice and a strengths based approach.
- Ability to work independently as well as within a team.
- Demonstrated knowledge of and experience with using standard computer software, such as Microsoft Office.
- Current drivers licence and use of a comprehensively insured, registered motor vehicle.
This position is funded as a fixed term, full time contract up to December 2018 and will be working at Brisbane South Inclusion Hub.
