Are you a passionate educator who is ready for a new challenge? Look no further than us! We are seeking an innovative, collaborative educator who is passionate about teaching and learning in an innovative learning environment and wants to be part of our dynamic and collaborative team.
In our school we work to provide contextual opportunities of learning that give learners choice and agency, while still gaining necessary skills, knowledge and qualifications. We believe in the concept of ako and that we are all learners. Collaborative practice is fundamental to our curriculum and as educators we know we can always learn from each other.
A commitment to providing rich authentic learning contexts in an integrated way across curriculum areas for Y11–13 is important. The ability to develop and create flexible and ongoing assessment practices for students to develop and undertake multiple pathways is also essential.
We are a restorative practices school and believe strongly in building and enhancing positive professional relationships with young people. All teachers are expected to be involved in our whānau system and will be supported to provide awhi, care, mentoring and academic counselling to students in a warm and demanding way.
Key elements of the role:
Working with teachers to support learners in mainstream classes in the senior high school
Developing and delivering learning programmes for students who require additional support in a way that is responsive to their learning needs
Working with the inclusive learning leader, other professionals and families/whānau to identify learning needs, design individual learning plans, monitor progress and access support through outside agencies where appropriate
Supporting the development of inclusive learning assistants to ensure they have the relevant skills to support our learners
Ensuring students who require special assessment conditions (SAC) have access to this provision.
