The Faculty of Education and Social Work at the University of Auckland seeking applications from registered and fully certificated teachers from ECE, primary or secondary backgrounds to supervise student teachers when they are on practicum placements.

The work involves going to centres/schools to observe student teachers as they teach and build relationships with colleagues in centres/schools and other student teachers. The duration and type of visit depends on the practicum placement and qualification, but all professional supervisors need to:

  • Be in email contact with the student teacher and centre/school colleagues about the placement
  • Observe teaching and provide feedback to student teachers
  • Guide the assessment process and recommend the final outcome of the practicum, providing a written report to the student teacher and the Faculty
  • attend supervisor meetings

 The Faculty will provide:

  • An hourly rate of $37.42, capped at a set number of hours per student, depending on the practicum
  • Mileage of 76c per kilometre
  • Training in observation and reporting on student teachers’ practice
  • Written support materials and online support, including the support of a professional experience director for each practicum

The work is in blocks, ranging from 4-10 weeks, throughout the year. Times and dates for centre/school visits can be negotiated with the centre/school, so there is flexibility and control over work hours and blocks, which could vary between 6-9 hours per student. Professional supervisors need to be able to visit anywhere in the greater Auckland area.

 As part of your application, please say which sector you have teaching experience in, and provide the additional information required for each area (please note that those details can be picked up on the full advert up on the University of Auckland website
