Westland High School is seeking a dynamic and motivated teacher to join our team as a teacher of Te reo Māori within the school’s bilingual class, which will be relocated into a brand new purposely built whare wānanga (to be completed for the beginning of term 1, 2022). This is an opportunity to work with exceptional, award winning rangatahi that have been immersed in a bilingual learning setting, from one of our contributing schools, and to work collaboratively with our current long standing, permanent bilingual class teacher.  If you have a passion for advancing and supporting Rangatahi to achieve their full potential then this is the job for you! 

The successful candidate will be flexible and adaptable and willing to take on and implement new ideas whilst retaining the values of the School. We are a Manaiakalani digital school that embraces technology. Strong communication skills to build and sustain relationships  with Mana whenua and whānau are essential. Experience teaching Kapa haka would be an advantage but is not essential.

The successful applicant must be a NZ registered teacher. To be successful in this role you will need: 

  • A willingness to learn and upskill
  • An innovative and forward-thinking approach
  • Good communication and relationship skills
  • A focus on self-reflection and continuous improvement.

This is a unique opportunity to grow and develop your leadership by joining an exceptional secondary school located in an exceptional part of Aotearoa - Te Tai Poutini.
