Do you want to make a positive difference to the lives of our youngest tamariki and their family and whānau?

The Ministry of Education 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.

Positions are available in the greater Wellington region in the following roles:

  • Psychologist
  • Special education advisor
  • Early intervention teacher
  • Speech language therapist

The role of a specialist includes:

  • Working with a team around the child, 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 adult network around the child to make changes to the learning environment so that their behaviour can be more effectively managed and the situation can be stabilised/made safer. This includes 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, for example speech and language therapy and local agencies.

If you want to join us in making a real contribution to improving outcomes for New Zealand children, family and whānau, please apply now.

As part of your application please include a cover letter together with CV, addressed to Andrea Williams, Manager Learning Support – Wellington, Ministry of Education. Can you please ensure you indicate what role/s you are interested in applying for within the title of your cover letter.
