This is an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of New Zealanders by leading a cultural change where young people grow up developing an understanding of how to take care of theirs and other’s mental health and wellbeing. 

We are looking for a dynamic, passionate, and senior Auckland based teacher with recent experience of teaching in Years 1-8, wanting to be part of a team of coaches to assist with the implementation of Mitey, an exciting and innovative school wide approach to mental health education. Experience in multicultural schools or using Māori and Pasifika education approaches, is valuable.

Working in a fully supported environment you will work alongside schools to implement Mitey – www.mitey.org.nz, a world class, school wide, research based approach to mental health education. You will be forward focused, thoughtful and collaborative, embracing the freedom to provide your input into the implementation of Mitey. 

You will work in partnership with schools to assess what a school is already doing in the area of mental health and how the school can be supported to build on and strengthen leadership, policy, community engagement and curriculum in this area. You will need to be agile so you can work alongside each school to ensure that the school is fully supported and equipped to enable it to deliver and develop mental health education, including working with teachers to enable best practice pedagogies and adapting Mitey to the school’s culture and context.
