  • Are you an experienced leader who brings out the best in people, develops strengths and builds effective teams?
  • Are you a passionate, experienced teacher with a vision to make a difference in the lives of young people?
  • Are you ready and excited to embrace a new leadership opportunity?

Job summary

Hours of work are between 8am–5pm; with no additional out of hours work, meetings, report writing or extracurricular components. Is this sufficient to tempt you to move out of the traditional classroom and expand your existing leadership skills?

If so, Te Poutama Ārahi Rangatahi is seeking a certificated teacher who is able to provide strategic people and programme leadership to the education team of 4 (a certificated teacher and 3 teaching assistants). The ideal candidate will be experienced at implementing, evaluating and reporting on behaviour change, educational programmes, have an advanced understanding of curriculum management and development and possess a sound knowledge of current educational theory and practice.

We are looking for a strong communicator who can multi-task in a diverse work environment, however the role also requires someone who is unafraid to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in when necessary!

About the role

The primary objective is to supervise the development and best practice delivery of education for youth, ensuring integration with the therapeutic and residential aspects of the programme and lead the ongoing professional development of the teaching team.

It is essential to have significant experience leading people, preferably at a senior level within an educational context and critical to this role is an understanding of tikanga and te ao Māori.

As lead educator you will be a part of the senior leadership team of 8 people, and you report directly to the residence manager.
