Sport Tasman is looking for a healthy active learning advisor to be based in the West Coast region who can play a critical role in the implementation of Healthy Active Learning, a joint government initiative between Sport New Zealand and the Ministries of Health and Education.

As the healthy active learning advisor, you will support school leaders and teachers of targeted primary and intermediate schools to better plan and implement the health and physical education and hauora curriculum, identify, and develop opportunities for quality play, sport, and physical activity experiences for tamariki, and advise on how to establish healthy behaviours and environments through supporting the adoption and implementation of healthy food and water-only policies.

This includes developing and maintaining meaningful relationships with schools, and community health and physical activity providers to ensure a connected and coordinated approach to health and well-being outcomes for our tamariki.

The healthy active learning advisor will need to have a growth mind-set, a passion for physical activity, display social/emotional intelligence, embrace inclusivity and diversity and be able to have courageous conversations to achieve desired results.
