Summary

We are seeking experienced Occupational Therapists (0.8 EFT) who arecommitted to achieving social justiceand walking in solidarity withAboriginal children and their families. The successful applicants will work as part of a dynamic team which includesearly educators and health professionals and the families and their children.

Who are we?

Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child and Family Centre is a thriving Aboriginal community controlled organisation based in Thomastown.  Bubup Wilam delivers a holistic and integrated family focused model of care, which addresses the complex needs of Aboriginal children and families. Our programs include: 

  • Aboriginal early years enhanced education program.
  • BWEL Health and Wellbeing program, including an NDIA registered Early Childhood Intervention Service (ECIS).
  • Prevention and early intervention support for children and families.
  • Family and community strengthening, support, referral and advocacy.
  • Workforce Development, Employment and Training.
  • General education and community engagement on Aboriginal issues

Our Core Values:

Our approach is based on the understanding that young Aboriginal children and their families need holistic, culturally safe, Aboriginal-led programs to support them to overcome entrenched social disadvantage, to have the opportunity to develop their potential throughout their lives, and to thrive within their communities and the wider world.

Bubup Wilam meaning ‘Children’s Place’ in Woi Wurrung language seeks to underpin and strengthen that vision through the service’s philosophy of instilling and strengthening children’s strong sense of Aboriginal identity and personal self-esteem as their foundation for lifelong learning, health and wellbeing. This equates to children, and with the support of their parents and extended family, taking a lead responsibility in owning and maintaining their own identity and developing their play, space, interaction, learning and engagement with others in a confident and supported way. Guided by the teaching staff, we aim to ensure our children at a very early age begin the journey in reaching their full human potential.

These roles will be required to provide NDIS accredited Early Childhood Supports and Therapeutic Supports.  Experience in providing Early Childhood Supports and using a family centred, strengths based approach is preferred.  The successful applicants will also work closely with children who require additional support but are not eligible for NDIS services and will work collaboratively with the education team to support the learning and development of all the children in the education space.

This is an exciting opportunity for applicants who wish to walk in solidarity with Aboriginal colleagues, families and children in their fight for self determination.   We are looking for applicants who have a keen sense of social justice and a passion for watching children learn and grow from early year’s through to school and becoming strong, proud Aboriginal Community members.
