At Te Kura o Rudolf Steiner Ōtautahi we have children who love to learn, a dedicated staff and a warm, thriving, friendly community.  

Our Steiner/Waldorf education and way of learning is deeply embedded in everything we do and widely recognised. Our aim is for our education to be structured, creative and successful. Structure builds inner certainty, learning habits, confidence, and self-regulation. Creativity, grown from imagination, solves problems, brings joy, colour, new directions, and new thinking capacities. Success at any level develops positive self-esteem and the bravery to try new ideas. Academic success is well established in both primary and high school, and the blend of 'head heart hands' learning, artistic richness and intellectual thought is our unique educational characteristic.  

We are looking for two teachers willing to learn with and inspire our Y2–8 students in 2022. These roles could be two full-time positions or several part-time positions adding up to 2 FTTE. Willingness to teach across several year levels is an advantage.

The ideal applicant has:

  • Experience and knowledge of Steiner education (or can demonstrate a willingness and ability to learn to do so)
  • Is warm and friendly
  • Builds excellent collegial relationships
  • Has strong communication skills
  • Is calm, respectful, and kind
  • Is committed to learning and using te reo and tikanga Māori in their day-to-day practice. 

A willingness and ability to participate in the special character of our Waldorf education school is a condition of appointment.
