At UP Education, we believe learning should be defined by the exceptional!  For over two decades, we have built an innovative, student-centred learning community that provides outstanding education opportunities for students seeking a tertiary study experience in New Zealand or Australia.

UP International College New Zealand is our University Pathways division supporting international students transition into English speaking universities. Our newly formed Faculty of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) have a team of specialists who are passionate about teaching and are committed to providing the best learning opportunities to our students.  In this role, you will

  • Teach EAP in an online/hybrid mode and undertake assessment and administrative responsibilities
  • Collaborate with other subject teachers in design and delivery of curriculum while building your own knowledge of disciplinary differences
