With the STARplex recreation centre, a fully functioning farm, vineyard and winery, an equestrian centre and the Trinity Trade Centre, Trinity College offers a breadth of educational opportunities catering for a range of student learning pathways.

Head of Trinity, Nick Hately says “When you come to Trinity College you are coming to a community that does not begin and end at the School gate; it permeates the lives of thousands in the Northern region of Adelaide”.

The College is now seeking an outstanding educational leader who has the confidence, passion and drive to lead and manage the newly built, Trinity Innovation and Creativity School. Opening in 2020, this state-of-the-art facility includes a 360-degree projection room, virtual and augmented reality and interactive technologies, advanced robotics opportunities, and flexible spaces designed to enhance collaborative STEAM learning opportunities for students.

The new Trinity Innovation & Creativity School (TICS) underscores the College’s commitment to developing intellectually curious, optimistic, life ready young men and women who are empowered to shape their future in a rapidly changing world.

The Director of Innovation and Creativity is a senior position reporting to the Executive Director of Teaching and Learning.

  • lead and promote quality relationships with external partners
  • use emerging digital technologies to improve pedagogical practice within problem-based learning activities
  • possess a proven ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders and inspire staff to be continuous learners in the area of technology.
