Do you enjoy working with students who challenge your thinking, are creative, inquisitive and exceptional? Are you looking for a highly creative teaching job that is a little bit different? We have a job opportunity for 2019 in New Plymouth for a specialist gifted teacher, for 0.2 (or possibly a 0.3 position), 2–3 days from 9am–3.30pm with additional planning time paid for. We need a highly motivated, charismatic and experienced teacher to join our small MindPlus teaching team. Applicants must hold a teaching qualification, but current teacher registration is not required. Experience and/or a qualification in gifted education would be preferable but not essential. Applicants must be passionate about gifted education and willing to represent MindPlus and the Trust at cluster school meetings and Trust events. Professional learning will be provided.

MindPlus is a one-day withdrawal programme for gifted learners aged 6–13 years; we limit classes to a maximum of 16 children. It offers social and emotional support to allow students to understand themselves as gifted learners, while also providing academic challenges at a fast pace. Classes are grouped as juniors, middles and seniors, and age groups and days worked can be negotiated.

The programme is held in New Plymouth at the MindPlus classroom.
