Description

Introduction
NT Christian Schools is a Christian organisation.  It exists to advance the Christian religion through the provision of education and religious instruction. Accordingly, in furtherance of the religious ethos of NT Christian Schools all staff will be required to deliver or contribute to religious education, to lead or otherwise assist in the conduct of religious services and otherwise engage in religious practices and observances (including, but not limited to, leading prayers or devotions and sharing testimonies), either with fellow staff or students.  As representatives of NT Christian Schools, it is a genuine occupational qualification of such roles that applicants hold and act consistently with the religious beliefs of NT Christian Schools, including as articulated in the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools.

NT Christian Schools exists to provide a thoroughly Christian education and to give effective witness to the biblically based religious beliefs of the Company.  As such, holding the religious beliefs of NT Christian Schools as articulated in the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools is a genuine occupational qualification of this role.

You are expected to have a clear understanding of, and unqualified commitment to the biblical basis, including as articulated in the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools, and to act both in the work place and in other contexts in ways that are consistent with those beliefs, in order to provide an authentic Christian witness.

This role requires the Teacher to practice, deliver and contribute to religious education in a manner that is consistent with the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools and to model a life consistent with those beliefs.  As such, this role requires the highest commitment to the Lord, the Bible and to schooling from a distinctively Christian perspective, consistent with the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools. This will be evident in supporting the teaching of the Australian curriculum from a biblical worldview, participating in and leading staff devotions and leading student devotions and prayer time and through the sharing of your personal testimony.  In addition, staff offer a reflection of their own growing relationship with Christ, which is itself affirmed by living a life consistent with the teaching of the word of God.  Accordingly, the modelling of an authentic Christian life is a core requirement of the position, reflecting the foundational contribution the position makes to the maintenance of the religious ethos of the school.

Your work for the organisation involves serving and supporting those people for whom we exist, namely students and their parents, in order to provide an effective witness to the Christian beliefs articulated in the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools. This is the core function for all people employed by NT Christian Schools.  Each is expected to work as a member of a team serving and supporting each other in the various tasks to which God has called them.  Each team member is expected to contribute positively to the maintenance of a Christ-centred pleasant, purposeful, productive and safe workplace.

These responsibilities and duties are, therefore, underpinned by expectations of generosity, openness, teamwork, effectiveness, efficiency, attention to detail, pleasant working relationships and maintenance of an effective, Christ-centred, attractive, and safe work environment.

Within this community, it is a core requirement of this role that you model Christian principles by example, at all times acting in a manner consistent with the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools, in order to provide an effective witness to the beliefs of NT Christian Schools.

This role requires the teacher to teach religious education consistent with the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools.  You agree that the teaching of religious instruction to students within NT Christian Schools may be detrimentally impacted by the inconsistent conduct or inauthentic witness of those who teach.  As such, this role requires the highest commitment to the Lord, the Bible and to schooling from a distinctively Christian perspective.  You acknowledge and accept that NT Christian Schools will conduct its activities, including the delivery of school curriculum, co-curriculum and public events, in a manner that is consistent with the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools and the Christian beliefs and ethos of NT Christian Schools more generally.
