We are seeking an inspired educator to lead the physical education department for the middle and senior schools (Y7–13). This is a full-time, permanent appointment which will commence in time for the start of term 3, Friday 30 July 2021.

Scots College is a co-educational IB World School in the Eastern suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand and is comprised of three schools in one; preparatory (Y1–6), middle (Y7–10) and senior (Y11–13). We offer a vibrant learning environment for our students and recognise that working in groups, thinking critically and solving problems are just as important as the knowledge we give them. At Scots, a future focused education equips each student to thrive now and, in their futures, to learn. For life.

Scots College offers dual pathway options for its senior students, delivering both NCEA and the IB Diploma. We are also fully authorised for the delivery of the Middle Years Programme and the Primary Years Programme.  Experience teaching the MYP and/or Diploma Programme would be advantageous although training will be provided to the successful candidate.

Applicants should have:

  • Experience or willingness to lead an important curriculum area
  • A willingness to potentially teach both the IB Diploma and NCEA qualifications
  • A passion for, and the ability to promote physical education and health in the college
  • Superior communication and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent organisational skills and time management
  • A desire to foster excellence
  • The ability to promote learning
  • The ability to manage and motivate students and staff
  • A commitment to our special character and co-curricular programmes.

If you are motivated by the prospect of being a part of a dynamic teaching environment and would enjoy the challenges of this exciting role, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
