We are looking to fill the newly created role of HOF humanities: English / social science.

Strengths in delivery of senior English required.

We seek an enthusiastic, caring teacher to lead the faculty in our dynamic semirural Y7–13 college, located in Temuka. If you are a motivated teacher, with innovative ideas and the ability to build strong teaching/learning relationships with students, then we would be very interested in receiving your application. You would be directly responsible for English and social science staff.

Our ideal candidate will be a teacher who possesses confidence and capabilities in the use of technology, and is a practitioner with excellent curriculum knowledge (with a focus on the English curriculum). Ability to teach English at Level 3 is a requirement of this position. 

A commitment to inclusive practice and differentiated planning is essential. You will be joining a team of strong practitioners in PB4L, restorative practice and culturally responsive pedagogy. 

We are a member of the Timaru North Kāhui Ako and our challenges are based around transitions, priority learners and wellbeing.

We are a small, collegial secondary school, situated in South Canterbury – this means relatively small classes and weekend access to the beautiful lakes and mountains of the Mackenzie country. Being just  20 minutes north of Timaru leaves you the choice of rural or urban living.

Applicants must be New Zealand certificated and hold (or have proof of application for) Teaching Council registration.

Start date is negotiable – we may be able to offer a 2020 start date to the right candidate.
