Thank you for your interest in the part-time, fixed-term position of literacy/numeracy teacher. The position starts 22 July 2019 or by negotiation. We are a vibrant community of learners and are seeking a passionate teacher to work closely with our Learning Acceleration team.  

This 0.5 role is focused on accelerating the literacy and numeracy skills of our Y7–9 learners. Once appointed the delivery of this role will be co-constructed with the successful applicant. Ideally you will be:

  • A successful teacher of literacy and numeracy at Levels 1–3 of the NZ Curriculum and/or have confidence in supporting older learners who are working well below expected levels in both areas
  • Energetic, flexible and will have a variety of skills for engaging learners
  • Be willing to work as part of a small, dynamic team.

Added to this role is a 0.1 ORS teacher, to support a young person in Y11. The focus of this role will be to work alongside teachers and other support staff, in preparing a pathway for this young person, whilst engaging them in meaningful learning activities within the school programme. This is a learning focused role and we believe the skills required are similar to those of the 0.5 role therefore we are offering them within the same appointment.

The successful applicant will be working very closely with our Head of Learning Acceleration.
