We are looking for dynamic, innovative teachers who would be excited to be part of the Ferndale teaching team in 2022. 

These positions are fixed-term as they will be covering specific project positions or replacing a permanent staff member who is undertaking project work for 2022. The specific projects these positions relate to are Ferndale Schools Outreach Service and providing classroom release for our beginning teachers. Positions are full-time but part-time negotiable.

The applicants we seek will be collaborative, motivated and positive teachers who use a range of effective teaching and behaviour management practices with ORS funded learners. Our learners thrive when positive relationships are developed. To work effectively with our learners you will be a relationship-based teacher who values diversity, has excellent communication skills, a great sense of humour and sees themselves as a learner. These teaching positions will be either within our base school classrooms or within our primary, secondary or transition satellites or Outreach Service.

Our school motto is “The Best I Can Be”.  If you want to help our learners realise this aspiration, you are a NZ registered teacher and are interested in joining our team we would love to hear from you.
