Vacancy reference #: 1HALfx

Our school has recently rejoined a Kahui Ako and this has provided our Board with an opportunity to employ a permanent learning support coordinator (LSC). The successful applicant will work across two schools with flexibility given as and when needs arise.

  • Three days per week at Morningside School
  • Two days a week at Otaika Valley School.

The purpose of the LSC is to support our children with additional learning needs to have access to the services they need, in ways that recognise their identity, language and culture. The successful applicant will work closely with a wide variety of stakeholders: staff, students and whānau, other LSCs within our Kāhui Ako and external agencies, to achieve this. They will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to support the learning and progress of every student as they transition in, through and out of our school.

This permanent full-time role will:

  • Support students through building an inclusive school or kura and cluster environment which encourages participation, progress and successful transitions
  • Support kaiako/teachers in schools and kura to lift their capability to better meet the needs of learners, and to strengthen their connections with early learning services
  • Support parents and whānau to build better relationships of understanding around learning support and establishing points of contact if needed
  • Work alongside other LSCs across the cluster and connect with the learning support facilitator and wider agencies e.g. Oranga Tamariki, to access services and resources to support learners 
  • Work with the schools or kura leadership teams to influence and encourage them about ensuring the needs of all students receive the appropriate support to enhance their learning and progress.
