  • 40 hours per week
  • Bring your leadership experience to join a highly skilled ECE team.

If you are an experienced, qualified and fully registered ECE teacher with a minimum of 3 years' experience and a collaborative leadership style, this could be the position for you!

As an AKA head teacher, you…

…would be part of an amazing team in a fun environment where children are the focus.

You are a confident communicator with excellent relationship and community engagement skills. In addition you bring to this role your strong leadership and mentoring skills, and commitment to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Balancing day-to-day operations and staff management alongside relationship management and teaching duties means variety and intrinsic reward. Of course, it also brings challenges, compliance and operational targets, so you'll need to be energetic and enthusiastic about providing a high-quality learning experience to our children and whānau. 

Our curriculum is driven by a strong play-based philosophy that promotes dispositional learning. We have implemented the Storypark e-portfolio and one of the exciting features of our organisation is that we offer a range of technological resources to extend children's learning, so you'll enjoy using ICT as a teaching tool.

Our families and community reflect the growing cultural diversity of Auckland, so a strong community focus is also a vital part of this role.

You will of course also work directly with the children and love to get your hands dirty.
