Position beginning term 3.

We are an innovative school focused on developing the structures, processes and practices required for the deep personalisation of learning. This requires teachers who are genuinely willing to begin the learning process with the needs of every student, design and organise learning to meet those needs, gather evidence to determine the effectiveness of their teaching and learning programmes and always be responsive to the evidence and what they now know about the child.  

We are looking for 2 teachers to join our growing school as we continue to develop our unique educational approach. Initially, teaching and learning Amesbury style will feel uncomfortable and challenging. You will need to be resilient and an ethical, committed professional. Are you a continual learner? Are you urgent to see equitable outcomes for all students? Do you have high levels of knowledge of the curriculum and are you always eager to know more? Are you prepared to work in a highly collaborative team-teaching environment?

At our school, we are serious about our responsibilities to New Zealand’s Te Tiriti partnership and to our highly multicultural school community. Expectations are high; however, we are supported by a caring and generous board of trustees, who are very concerned about the career development of teachers, teacher workloads and who are seeking sustainable solutions.

We have a strong leadership development programme which takes a coaching leadership approach. Leadership capability, interest and potential is identified early and encouraged through a range of development programmes beginning with an emerging leaders’ programme.  

If successful, our guarantee is that you will be exposed to new ideas. We will be committed to your ongoing growth and development and we will work with you to develop a meaningful career pathway.
