Taupō Kāhui Ako is seeking 10 full-time learning support coordinators to work collegially within our region. 

The successful applicants will have:

  • The ability to work as part of a team is essential.

LSCs will work to build the learning support capability of kaiako/teachers, and to help identify and plan for the learning support needs of all the children and young people in our Kāhui Ako. This is a coordinating role but requires the incumbent to be an experienced teacher in order to know how to engage with kaiako/teachers to support the development of their practice in working with children and young people with a range of learning support needs.

This role will have you working across the region but you will be employed by and based with 2 or 3 other learning support coordinators at selected schools in the Taupō Kāhui Ako.
