Vacancy reference #: 1HAN7x

The successful applicant will work closely alongside the other (JHS) Y7–10 learning support coordinators and leader of inclusive learning. We have 3.4 designated LSC roles across RHS  and this role provides an exciting opportunity to join our staff here and be part of a team of LSCs at RHS. 

Over the last 2 years we have designed and implemented unique structures to ensure our LSCs are supporting staff, students and whānau in a way that aligns with the original intention of the LSC role and complements our approach to learning and people at RJHS. To finalise the detailed position description for each successful applicant we will look to utilise the strengths and knowledge of each successful applicant. The successful applicant will be guided and led by our existing leader of inclusive learning and other staff in similar roles at RHS and across our Te Pae Here Kāhui Ako (Community of Learning).

RHS provides a unique, challenging and enjoyable environment to teach in. We place significant emphasis on working and learning collaboratively and believe as a leadership team we offer our staff the opportunity to contribute actively to the direction of the school and importantly to realise their own potential as an educator.

We are looking for experienced and high-performing teachers who are willing to support staff, students and whānau to deliver high-quality learning programmes to our young people with additional learning needs. Experience working with students from Y7–13 (that is, any or all of these year groups) is essential. No learning support experience is necessary but will be considered an advantage. An empathy and understanding for all learners and their whānau is a requirement of the position. 

We would encourage you to come and visit us and speak with our existing LSCs. We will invest significantly in the professional learning of the successful applicant.
