The Gordon's renowned professional development program provides staff with opportunities to develop new skills, enhance their knowledge and make the most of their experience at The Gordon.
During recent years the Institute has invested heavily in professional development opportunities for teaching and non-teaching staff. A program of activities and training programs is offered annually including:
Staff also have access to approved external training and education, conferences and networking activities.
Many staff have taken advantage of opportunities to train or teach interstate and overseas. The Institute conducts training throughout Victoria and in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. We also run programs for international students off-shore.
Staff at the Gordon have access to professional career mapping, advice and structured support. At the Gordon you will be encouraged to grow your skills base, identify short term and long term goals and pursue them. Funded professional development is also available in teacher training, vocational competency, communication skills, risk management and more.
Genuine two-way communication between staff and managers is encouraged through the Performance Planning and Review process. Employees have an opportunity to discuss their professional development requirements and career path in a formalised way and progress is reviewed.
An Employee Assistance Program is in place, offering free external counselling to staff experiencing difficulties that may impact on their work. Team building activities can also be facilitated where appropriate.
An annual stress buster is organised for the last day of the working year, which involves a fun and interactive presenter to provide some light relief.
The Institute provides flexible working options such as:
