Are you interested in a unique opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of children and young people?

Are you an innovator with excellent behaviour management skills and the ability to create a responsive and engaging learning environment?

We need you to join the Arahina team to work with students (10–16 years) who are in non-residential care of Oranga Tamariki and not in education, to prepare and support these students to successfully transition into mainstream education. The Arahina ki Otautahi service is delivered by Kingslea School and provides a specialist education programme with high student/ staff ratios.

Successful applicants will have high levels of cultural competence and strengths in raising student engagement and achievement and managing challenging behaviour. 

Due to border restrictions applicants must reside in New Zealand.

Staff are employed under the Secondary Schools Collective Agreement but both Primary or Secondary qualifications will be considered.
