We are seeking to appoint a talented and motivated teacher of drama (with English) to teach in our middle Y7–10 and senior Y11–13 schools. This appointment is commencing in January and concluding in July 2020. There may be an opportunity for the incumbent to take up the acting HOD role.

We are a world-class independent school with a strong Presbyterian heritage.

Based in the eastern suburbs of Wellington, our college offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of education. The college is proud of its dedicated staff who work hard to support and encourage the students. The school environment is strong, and the staff work closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their children.

Our college offers a dual pathway for its senior students offering both NCEA and the IB Diploma. The college is fully authorised for the delivery of the Diploma Programme and the Middle Years Programme. Experience teaching these programmes would be highly advantageous, although training will be provided if required.

Applicants should have:

  • Excellent general drama teaching experience and ideally also English experience
  • The ability to promote learning
  • A willingness to move with the times and work to meet our future-focused learning goals
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills
  • A passion for education
  • The ability to manage and motivate young people
