Thank you for your interest in our position of Y7-8 teacher, full-time permanent, to start at the beginning of the 2021 school year. This position is extra to the position we advertised in September and arises from a variety of reasons but predominantly roll-growth.
Previous applicants for the September advertised position who wish to apply for this new position do not have to complete all the documentation again. An email stating their applying for the new position is all that is required.
Our Y7 and Y8 learners are together for 15 hours a week in our Tāhuhu core curriculum. Learners experience the core curriculum both from a lead teacher working with their specific class and from grouping across the classes. This flexibility is designed to create security of relationships and meet diverse learning needs. Therefore we seek a Y7–8 teacher with expertise in accelerating learning both by working individually with a set group of learners and collaboratively with flexible groupings. We seek a teacher who brings their own strengths to the team and is skilled in working in complex environments where interdependence is the norm and welcomed.
Apart from previous applicants, application is by a covering letter, CV and the Linwood College at Ōtākaro (LCŌ) application form available from the LCŌ website. The website also has a number of accompanying documents to outline the present and future culture and direction of our school.
