Tihoi Venture School (located on the Western Bay side of Lake Taupo) operates a holistic approach to education. The students complete an academic, outdoor and social education programme. The outdoor environment is used to enhance the teaching of both academic and social skills. The academic programme is integrated where possible and students achieve a number of level one NCEA credits while at the school.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, energetic, and well-organised person to join our Tihoi Venture School. This unique and varied role requires excellent skills in pastoral care, as well as the ability to teach Y10 and a commitment and ability to participate in our outdoor programme.

While at Tihoi, students complete a number of tramps, a survival exercise, solo exercises, flat and moving water kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, high and low ropes course activities, sea kayaking, caving, alpine, and an expedition.

We are looking to appoint a qualified and registered teacher (who is able to teach either English, mathematics, science or social science) who also has a strong interest in outdoor education. In this role, you will work with the students in class and on their outdoor pursuits, so experience in outdoor education and Level 1 NZOIA qualifications in one or more of the disciplines mentioned above is desirable.

Dependent on the candidate, there is also the potential to be considered for the role of Academic Coordination for the campus. All staff live onsite in provided accommodation and make a full commitment to the co-curricular and pastoral care of the students.
