This is an exciting opportunity to be part of Te Puna Mātauranga Kāhui Ako (TPM KA) in western Porirua.

Our vision is valuing our community, investing in our people, connecting.  

Te Puna Mātauranga Kāhui Ako is seeking a fully released learning support coordinator (LSC) to work collegially alongside three other LSCs within our region. This position will start in January 2021. The successful applicant will be working with students, teachers, whānau and agencies to support the learning of our students.

  • Demonstrating successful experience in working with and including students with learning support needs in the classroom

  • A current teaching practising certificate and relevant teaching qualification.

LSCs work to build the learning support capability of kaiako/teachers, and to help identify and plan for the learning support needs of all of the children and young people in our Kāhui Ako. This is a coordinating role but requires the incumbent to be an experienced teacher in order to know how to engage with kaiako/teachers to support the development of their practice in working with children and young people with a range of learning support needs.
