Our future is bright  

Educator – school of teacher education  

Full-time, permanent 

  • Are you an early career Christian educator with a passion for preparing teachers who will make a difference in the lives of those they teach?  
  • Are you ready and excited to embrace a new opportunity? 

As a result of internal promotions, Bethlehem Tertiary Institute (BTI) in Tauranga is seeking such a person to join the school of teacher education in its next exciting phase of development. The opportunities for Christian initial and ongoing teacher education are great. Our vision is to develop well prepared, wise and innovative teachers who have a heart to serve communities and nations – both in Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond.  

If successful you will teach and research in teacher education, mainly within the secondary education programme, with some possibility of also working in the Bachelor of Education programmes. Ideally you would have recent experience in teaching of maths, science and technology, although other cross-curricula strengths would be considered. Ideally you would have strong knowledge of NCEA, and also have a commitment culturally aware and responsive practices towards students from diverse cultures. 

We have an excellent reputation for our initial teacher education programmes for secondary, primary and early childhood as well as for supporting teachers through professional learning development opportunities. Central to our approach to initial teacher education is the commitment to developing ‘wise educators who are gracious, secure and teachable and whose teaching is relational, transformative, and responsive’ through programmes and people who are faith-informed, hope inspired, and motivated by love.   

You will be a registered teacher with a current full practising teacher certificate. Knowledge of and experience within Christian education is helpful to this role as is an understanding of tikanga Māori. Ideally, you will have a Masters’ degree or be working towards this.
