Administration and Compliance Professional (2017)

Key-point summary

School Administration Professional. Highly experienced school administrator with great attitude and skills, and a passion for detail, prioritising tasks and meeting deadlines.


Insight is a Specialist Primary & Secondary School for the blind and vision impaired. It is the “hub” of explicit education programs for blind and vision impaired children, regardless of where they live and go to school. Until February 2013, there was no longer such a school anywhere in Victoria for the approximately 1000 blind and vision impaired children and young people.

Nearly 70% of Australia’s blind and vision impaired children will be unemployed as adults. Insight’s explicit education model specifically addresses this problem. From its hub at Berwick, InsightOut takes Insight’s programs out across Victoria via 3 Mobile Classrooms and 2 Satellites embedded, from 2017, in mainstream schools in the west and north.
