Join our innovative private primary school on the North Shore of Auckland. We are looking for a dynamic assistant teacher / kaiako to join our committed team on a fixed-term contract for 2 terms (26 July to 17 December) to cover maternity leave. We currently have 16 students, ranging from 5–11 years old. You will be well supported by our lead teacher/principal and 2 part-time release teachers and have opportunities for professional learning and development, time in nature and a very varied and dynamic curriculum.

We are looking for someone who wants to be part of an innovative school community that values building authentic relationships with children, supporting their individual learning pathways, and deploying evidence-based teaching approaches. Our ideal employee understands the value of ako, that we are all learners, and teachers, alongside our tamariki. You do not need to be a registered teacher – although this is preferable – you could be working towards registration, have a Limited Authority to Teach, be a teacher aide, or have other relevant qualification or experience. Experience working with children at primary school age is preferable. This is a full-time role but we would consider 4 days a week.
