We are seeking to appoint a talented and motivated teacher of art to teach in our prep and middle schools (Y1–8). This is a fixed-term, 0.8 FTE appointment to commence in time for the start of term 4, mid-October, concluding at the end of the year.

Our college is a world-class independent school with a strong Presbyterian heritage. Based in the Eastern suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand, 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 outcomes for their children.  

As an IB World School, Scots is comprised of three schools in one; preparatory (boys Y1–6), middle (boys Y7–10) and senior (co-educational Y11–13). Our vision is to equip students with a future-focused education and we recognise that working in groups, thinking critically and solving problems are just as important as the knowledge we give them. A Scots education equips each student to thrive now and in their futures, to learn. For life.

Applicants should have:

  • Excellent general art teaching experience (musical ability is also advantageous)
  • 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
  • A commitment to our special character and co-curricular programmes.

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.

How to apply

Applications are to comprise a covering letter and current CV (stating teacher certification details, all teaching subjects and including the names of at least 3 referees). Applications are to be submitted electronically.
