Educational Leader

Education is an evolving role, and Educational Leaders must have their finger on the pulse and be updated with current strategies. You’ll use your leadership skills to instruct others and lead by setting examples and showing confidence in your learning environments.

As an educational leader, you’ll work closely with your team, families and children. You’ll be an inspiration to fellow team members and build trusted relationships with your network, children and their families. Your professionalism will showcase to all visitors that a child’s education is taken very seriously and that you’ll provide the ideal environment for a child’s first steps in their learning journey.

At Guardian Childcare & Education, we provide high-quality and well-resourced learning spaces, so our Educational Leaders can inspire, mentor, collaborate, and challenge their team members to produce a highly experienced team. You’ll have the chance to lead improvements to current education programs and ensure they meet current curriculum outcomes.

In addition to a competitive salary, we also offer many other benefits to our Educational Leaders, including:

  • Discounts on childcare services, workplace rewards and recognition.
  • Access to the WHEREFIT program, where you’ll receive over 2,000 discounted corporate offers, including up to 50% off gym memberships, beauty products, activewear purchases, healthy meals, and many more.
  • Access to the Guardian Degree Program will provide support for additional studies, including paid study, flexible working arrangements, mentorship programs, and course fee reimbursement (terms and conditions apply).

Educational Leader role

An Educational Leader is considered more than a job; it is a passion and purpose. As an experienced Educator, you’ll know what it takes to be considered at the top of your profession. You have a natural ability to lead and inspire others to be the best.

Educational leaders can leave a lasting impression on team members, and they can drive the entire team to successful outcomes. When talking with families, children, and team members, your experience and confidence will shine.

Why is an Educational Leader important?

Good leadership will help inspire other teachers and encourage people to follow your guidance. Leading by example is one of a person’s most effective methods. When you work at the expected standards, others will see what you’re doing and want to follow suit.

As an Educational Leader, you’ll be leading other Educators and Teachers who may have less experience and will require advice and mentoring. You’ll be available to answer questions or seek answers from your support network, including the Centre Manager.

What qualities make an excellent Educational Leader?

A leading teacher will be working in the learning spaces, and will instruct Trainees and less experienced Educators. Educational leaders are the heart of the centre and the central point of contact for many others. The qualities that make an excellent Educational Leader will include:

  • Passionate
  • Honest
  • Respectful
  • Dedicated
  • Courageous
  • Influential
  • Communicative

A good leader has the potential to transform a centre as they can rally the team and ensure all work is completed to the expected standards.

How to apply for Educational Leader jobs?

Education leaders will need appropriate qualifications, such as a Diploma or Degree in Early Childhood Education. They’ll also require working knowledge of the National Quality Framework (NQF) and Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

At Guardian, we often look for Educational Leaders to help lead our team and deliver their unique experiences and teaching methods. If you feel you have the right amount of experience and would like to work in one of our childcare centres, then we’d love to hear from you.
