We are seeking an exceptional music teacher, teaching Y7–13 including NCEA, to join our music department. The successful candidate will commence in time for the start of the 2018 year.

The college is an independent, Presbyterian school for boys located in Strathmore, Wellington. Wellington is known as the cultural capital of NZ. The benefits of this environment are many and the college is keen to provide students with exposure to as much of this as possible as a part of their all-round education. Although high academic expectations are part of the culture of the college, it is committed to ensuring a balanced, holistic approach to the education of the young men who attend.

The college boasts an impressive creative and performing arts centre. This exciting expansion provides exceptional facilities and allows for greater emphasis on musical development, creativity and performance.

The college is fully authorised for the delivery of the IB Diploma and the Middle Years Programme. While experience teaching these programmes would be advantageous, training will be provided if required.

 Applicants should have:

  • Exceptional musical aptitude with a proven ability to lead choral and/or instrumental music
  • The ability to contribute to the college’s extensive music programmes of groups, concerts, competitions and productions
  • Advanced understanding of the use of computer notation and recording programmes in a teaching environment
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • A passion for boys’ education
  • The ability to manage and motivate students
  • A commitment to our special character and co-curricular programmes.

If you are motivated by the prospect of being a part of a dynamic teaching environment and would enjoy the challenges of this exciting role, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
