Do you enjoy working with students who challenge your thinking, are creative, inquisitive and exceptional? Are you looking for a highly creative teaching job that is a little bit different? We have a job opportunity in the Stratford area for a teacher, for 1 day (0.2 FTE with the potential to increase to 2–3 full days in 2022), from 9am–3.30pm with additional planning time paid for. 

We need a highly motivated, charismatic and experienced teacher to join our specialist teaching team. Applicants must hold a teaching qualification, but current teacher registration is not required. Experience and/or a qualification in gifted education would be preferable but not essential. Applicants must be passionate about gifted education and willing to represent The Head Office at school meetings and events. Ongoing professional development and support will be provided. 

The Head Office is a one-day withdrawal programme for advanced learners with complex learning needs and provides intellectual and creative challenges in a supportive environment with like-minded peers. We cater for students aged 6–13 years; we limit classes to a maximum of 18 children.

We are in the process of setting up an additional Head Office classroom in the Stratford area to cater for students in the wider Taranaki region. Information about our programme and our organisation can be found at: 

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to visit our existing classroom in New Plymouth to find out more about our programme.
