This Auckland-based special school is looking to appoint a special needs teacher with leadership experience to coach staff using an adapted NZ Curriculum following student-directed learning strategies across Y7–15 students at the base and 2 double-class satellite units.

The successful applicant will have:

  • Proven skills in working with students with a variety of disabilities including autism and complex multiple needs
  • Additional skills in arts and crafts are an advantage
  • Effectiveness in working collaboratively with school leaders, therapists, social worker and teaching teams with a number of teacher aides. Contributing to students’ IEPs and involving parents in the learning programmes is an intrinsic part of this approach
  • A high level of IT skills is expected as we are sharing students’ learning with our families/whānau using SeeSaw
  • Have a range of effective skills that assist students with intellectual impairment to learn. These may include the use of visual strategies, PECS, social stories, functional analysis of comprehension and behaviour, setting SMART targets, individualising programmes, use of appropriate feedback strategies, structuring the classroom environment
  • Have a sense of humour, flexible approach, and effective organisational skills.

The school follows a positive behaviour support approach with students with challenging behaviours. The school is well-resourced and the board of trustees encourages professional development opportunities for all staff.

If you are passionate about working with students who require extra support to enable them to reach their full potential then we would encourage you to apply.
