Our school offers an exciting new teacher position as our learning support coordinator (LSC) for 2020. This is a full-time permanent position shared between Whītau School and Linwood College Ōtākaro; commencing in term 1, 2020. 

We are looking for a highly skilled and experienced teacher, who will work closely with the SENCOs and senior leaders of Whītau School and Linwood College Õtākaro, to support our students and their whānau with their learning support needs and transition pathways. 

The role will be based at Whītau School and you will become an integral, valued member of the school staff with 60% of the role supporting the Whītau School community. Around 40% of the LSC role will be fostering successful transitions from Y6–7 from Whītau School to Linwood College Õtākaro by working closely with the Y5–6 students at Whītau School and their whānau.

The successful applicant will be able to work collaboratively and supportively, adapting to meet the priority needs of our school communities. The willingness to be flexible while this new role evolves, develops and adapts to best meet the learning needs of our Tamai Kāhui Ako learners is essential.
