Humanities and Social Sciences
Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) allows students to develop critical thinking skills by providing opportunities for them to engage in social inquiry while appreciating accepted values associated with social justice, democratic processes and ecological sustainability.
Teaching & Learning Support
The role of the Teaching and Learning Support (TLS) team is to support the social and emotional well-being of our students. Our aim is that students be happy and healthy in order to achieve success in their education, and in doing so, establish the foundations for a fulfilling adult life. Our team consists of a Team Leader, Chaplain, Student Support Coordinator, School Psychologist, Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer (AIEO), Nurse and an Education Assistant.
Approved Specialist Programs
Belmont City College’s Aboriginal Ambassadors program is a voluntary program that targets Aboriginal students who have been identified as having the potential to be positive ambassadors. The group aims to have a positive impact on the culture of the school and the wider community.
Inclusive Education Centre
The Inclusive Education Centre (IEC) provides a holistic support structure for students with additional needs who are unable to independently access mainstream education programs. The IEC offers two types of student support; education support or supported mainstream enrolment.
Deaf Education Centre
Deaf and hard of hearing students enrol directly into Belmont City College and participate in a mainstream education experience unless their individual needs require their withdrawal for specific subjects. This ensures the highest level of inclusion for all Deaf and hard of hearing students. Often for year 7, 8 and 9 students this would mean they’re having English classes in the Deaf Education classroom.
