In 2022 we have several exciting projects happening at Ferndale School and we need an innovative teacher who has leadership capabilities to assist in the development of some projects. This position comes with 2MU.

The projects that we are seeking assistance with are in the development of our Transition for our 16–21 year old students and in Outreach - a service we provide to mainstream schools to support ORS funded learners in mainstream. This role is primarily a leadership role focused on working collaboratively with others to design, develop, monitor and evaluate systems, documentation, programs and approaches in both Transition and Outreach. This position may involve some part time teaching as part of our Outreach Service. 

The applicant we seek will have leadership capabilities, have the ability to design and develop systems, structures and documentation. The person in this role will need to have the skills to work with a range of people within and outside of the school organisation, develop professional relationships, be collaborative and have excellent written and oral communication skills. A sound knowledge of specialist education would also be beneficial. 

Our school motto is “The Best I can Be”.  If you would like to be in a pivotal role to help our learners and other ORS funded learners realise this aspiration, you are a NZ registered teacher and are interested in joining our team we would love to hear from you. 

We look forward to receiving your application pack, CV and a letter of application sent to Maureen Poulter, Principal at PO Box 36024, Merivale, Christchurch or email principal@ferndale.school.nz
