Te Kura is New Zealand's largest school. We provide personalised and authentic learning programmes through distance education from early childhood level to Y13, including young adult and adult learners.


We are looking for a permanent, full-time registered, qualified early childhood kaiako. This role requires someone who works collaboratively in a team, is willing to learn, share ideas and builds respectful and reciprocal relationships. 

You will need to be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki, be digitally literate and confident working with technology.

If you are an excellent communicator, self-motivated, show initiative, and are committed to improving education outcomes for learners, we would love to hear from you.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced kaiako to be part of our early childhood teaching team, based in Wellington.

Listen to Mike Hollings our Chief Executive, talk about the school and check out our 360 Virtual Tours.
