We have a job opportunity for 2018 in New Plymouth for a specialist gifted teacher, for 0.2 and 0.3 position, 2–3 days from 9am–3.30pm with additional planning time paid for. We need a highly motivated and experienced teacher to join our small MindPlus teaching team. Applicants must hold a teaching qualification.
