Vacancy reference #: 1HA73i

We are seeking an inspired educator to lead the chemistry department for the senior school (11–13), as well as being willing to teach in the middle school (7–10). This is a full-time, fixed-term appointment which will commence in time for the start of term 3 2020 through to the end of term 3 2021 (5 terms).

Our college is a world-class independent school with a strong Presbyterian heritage. It is based in the Eastern suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand, and offers a vibrant learning environment including excellent, innovative facilities, some of which are brand new for 2020. 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.

The college has a proud 104 year history in education with its Future Focused Learning strategy well underway. This is an exciting new chapter for us and has been designed to ensure students are prepared as well as they possibly can be for their life after school. We have never been afraid to embrace change to ensure we prepare students for their futures through the delivery of a personalised and holistic education.

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 either or both of these programmes would be advantageous.

If you are motivated by the prospect of being a part of a dynamic teaching environment and would enjoy the challenges of this exciting role, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
