  • A global education ecosystem that develops life-ready students who learn how to learn. 

'It is a great school community to be part of. Smaller class sizes, supportive staff, quality facilities and great students all result in an ideal work environment for teachers.' 

With a vision of delivering 'a global education ecosystem that develops life-ready students who learn how to learn', we are a Y3–13 independent special character school delivering the New Zealand Curriculum to over 1,650 students across 11 campuses.

To deliver on our vision, we are prepared to do things differently, continually challenging traditional and outdated pedagogical models. Our learning centres, the embeddedness of technology and ultimately our students are a testament to this. We are committed to creating and delivering learning programmes that meet the educational needs of each student, and to nurturing the attitudes and skills necessary for their continual learning and personal growth throughout life. 

Our Taranaki Campus in Hawera is seeking a New Zealand registered and experienced secondary teacher to support students in our well-resourced learning centre on a fixed-term basis. While not essential, a background or interest in physical education, sport or coaching would be an advantage.

The learning centre is the main learning hub for our students. It is the space where opportunities for ‘the study’ portion of the self-directed learning process takes place on a campus. The centre is equipped with a range of learning zones, resources and seating options to facilitate student needs.

Applications from overseas teachers with teacher registration and recent related experience in New Zealand are welcome.
