Otahuhu College Auckland

Head of arts

Secondary (Years 7–15) / wharekura, Middle leadership

The arts

Listed 9:44 AM 28 July 2017
Closes 3pm 11 August 2017
Vacancy reference #: 1H9dih

We seek an experienced teacher with initiative to provide high-quality leadership that encourages excellent classroom teaching in the arts up to senior levels. It is expected that you will make a significant contribution to departmental outcomes and engage in the wider life of the college.

Applicants should be able to teach up to Scholarship level, be a NZ registered teacher and endorse the college’s academic priority. The successful applicant will also be expected to be involved in our extensive co-curricular programme.

Our college is a  Y9–13 school in Auckland serving a largely Pacific Island and Māori population. Our students’ families are in many cases first or second-generation New Zealanders who moved here for a better life and opportunities for their children, and this is reflected in the family aspirations.

As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study. This is a challenge because for many, they will be the first in their families to gain a tertiary degree.

The school has gone through a period of significant improvement in the past four years and we are currently looking for excellent classroom practitioners who can continue, and build on, our students’ successes.

The art department has a national reputation, consistently featuring strongly in competitions and with high numbers of excellences in externals. The department provides outstanding teaching in painting, art design and whakairo.
