An exciting opportunity to make a significant difference to the educational outcomes of our students. We seek an experienced teacher with initiative to provide high-quality leadership and support for our students. This role calls for an exemplary teacher with proven ability to drive attainment levels and create a stimulating learning environment responsive to individual capabilities and needs. As well as experience of using a range of assessments to monitor student progress and inform planning, we are looking for individuals with experience in using diagnostic tools to identify learning needs. The successful applicant will have the ability to support the development of teacher capacity to meet the needs of students in their classes with additional needs.

Our college is a Y9–13 school in Auckland serving a largely Pacific Island and Māori population. Our students’ families are in many cases first or second-generation New Zealanders who moved here for a better life and opportunities for their children, and this is reflected in the family aspirations. We are a vibrant school community with relentless focus on high expectations and aspirations. We are committed to recruiting talented individuals who share our vision of exceptional education and opportunities for each and every one of our students. 

Applicants should be a registered teacher and endorse the college’s academic priority. The successful applicant will also be expected to be involved in our extensive co-curricular programme. As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study and we are currently looking for excellent classroom practitioners who can continue, and build on, our students’ successes.
