Are you passionate about tamariki (children) and their educational success? Are you an experienced early years facilitator/educator? Do you relish supporting kaiako (teachers) and tamariki to enable them to achieve great outcomes in early education?

Tātai Angitu offers high-quality dynamic professional learning, development and support designed to respond to the needs of the education sector. We support professional learning through actively linking knowledge with opportunities and need to support kaiako, whānau (family) and ultimately tamariki. We do this through government-funded contracts, short courses, bespoke solutions for early learning services, kura, schools and communities, working in Aotearoa NZ and overseas, particularly in the Pacific.

Do you thrive in complex environments, are you able to simultaneously juggle various tasks, and look after critical details whilst maintaining an eye on the 'big picture'? We are looking for an ECE star in leadership using cultural frameworks, Māori and/or Pasifika cultural intelligence and local curriculum. A strong knowledge and application of Te Whāriki, planning and assessment, as well as an in-depth understanding of internal evaluation leading to change is essential. This role involves working across a variety of early learning settings, including Māori medium and Pasifika, as well as the opportunity to utilise these skills across other Tātai Angitu projects.

You can be based anywhere in NZ, however travel across a variety of geographical locations including Palmerston North for team development days and meetings is required. 

The role is a 24 month, full-time (37½ hours pw) fixed-term position.
