Located in Christchurch, Halswell Residential College (HRC) is a specialist residential school that supports young people with learning needs. To experience success in education these young people need to feel safe, make connections, and learn ways to manage their emotions.  We believe that every interaction with every student by every staff member has the potential to make a difference for that student, and we are intentional in creating a therapeutic environment.

We are looking for a teacher who shares our belief in young people and who is keen to join our team.

 The successful applicant will have strengths and experience in:

  • Building relationships that are focused on learning with young people aged 8–16 years old.
  • Delivering an adapted curriculum that is responsive to student needs.
  • Relating with all staff as well as external stakeholders in a collaborative way to support students.
  • Co-constructing and monitoring individual educational programmes that focus on readiness to learn, literacy, numeracy, and social skills.
  • Adapting plans at short notice to best meet the students’ needs.

In return Halswell Residential College offers:

  • The intrinsic rewards that come with building good relationships with diverse learners.
  • A supportive team of day school and residential staff who work together to promote learning.
  • Opportunities for professional development.
