Mahurangi College Auckland

Director of Mahurangi College Construction Academy

Secondary (Years 7–15) / wharekura, Certificated teacher


  Suitable for beginning teachers
Listed 8:42 AM 16 September 2021
Closes 4pm 08 October 2021
Vacancy reference #: 1HAPej

Due to a pending retirement we are seeking a skilled, confident and knowledgeable teacher to lead our successful Construction Academy. The academy is in its fourth year and has grown from strength to strength. Students complete both BCITO qualifications and NCEA standards and in 2020, the school sold its first tiny home, constructed entirely by the Academy.

Our ideal applicant will have some experience of teaching skills-based, large scale projects, and enjoy working with young people and helping them to reach their full potential. This position comes with significant autonomy for the right person to lead and shape the Academy’s future direction. This position could appeal to an experienced HOD who has grown weary of paperwork and wishes to get more ‘hands on’, or a mid-career teacher with lots of practical trade experience. 

We desire a teacher who values the trades and is passionate about developing community relationships, in order to enable Mahurangi College students to be the number one choice of applicants for local apprenticeships. It is important that the successful applicant is a team player and is able to see the big picture for the future development of this area of the school. 

We believe the Mahurangi district is an amazing place to live and work. Its coastline, countryside and clean air offer professionals and their families an amazing lifestyle. The SH1 motorway extension that opens next year makes Mahurangi a viable commuter destination.

This position will commence at the start of term 1, 2022, or by arrangement. 

We highly recommend a visit to the school to see the Academy set-up in action.
