It takes a special kind of person to work at Alesco Illawarra. Our staff need to be passionate, skilled and motivated education professionals with a commitment to working with students who have barriers to completing their education in mainstream school settings. We need staff who want to work in this kind of environment, who have an understanding of trauma-informed models of education and know that traditional school environments and teaching methods don’t always work for all students. Are you compassionate, patient and determined to help those who may have previously been left behind or face lots of challenges? We need you!
