The Ministry of Education currently provides behaviour services to preschool and school-age children through our Early Intervention Services and Behaviour Services and Support. We are now recruiting a range of specialists to help us expand those services to reach an additional 1,000 children each year across NZ.

The role includes the following:

  • Working with a team, including educators, parents, caregivers and whānau, to enhance understanding about the child and their behaviours, and to collaboratively develop, implement and monitor an effective personalised learning plan
  • Helping the adults around the child make changes to the learning environment so that the child's behaviour can be more effectively managed and the situation can be stabilised/made safer. This would include supporting the child to develop more pro-social ways of responding, and improve their participation, wellbeing and learning outcomes
  • Facilitating access to wider services and support in response to individual need.

You will need the following:

  • An ability and willingness to work in collaborative partnership with other professionals, agencies, families and the sector
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills including an ability to sustain productive professional relationships
  • A genuine commitment to evidence-based interventions which demonstrate inclusive education practice and contribute to raising student achievement
  • Sensitivity to cultural and ethnic diversity and a commitment to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

A current driver's licence is essential and experience in the NZ education system would be an advantage.

The Ministry offers opportunities for professional development and training and a friendly, supportive working environment.

Please indicate the office location that you are applying for.
