With a roll of approximately 680 students, we are a vibrant and successful coeducational secondary school in Levin. The school’s inclusive culture and progressive, future focused curriculum offers students and staff a range of unique learning opportunities.

Teacher of learning support – full-time permanent – 1MMA

A fantastic opportunity has arisen within our well-resourced learning support department which is housed in Te Whare Awhina, a purpose built facility opened in 2016. Under the leadership of our SENCO and Head of Learning Support, the current team of 4 teachers, a learning support coordinator and over 20 teacher aides provides a range of services that cater for the needs of students with Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) funding as well as students who require support with a range of other learning or behavioural needs.

Due to an increase in the number of students who need our support, we are now seeking a passionate, flexible and caring educator with expertise in these additional needs of students. The successful applicant will be able to adapt the curriculum, plan individual programmes and work closely with the SENCO, Head of learning support and the learning support coordinator to get the best outcomes for students with learning needs. They will have the ability to engage with our tamariki and whānau, and collaborate with our staff.

An appreciation for a Trauma Focussed Approach in planning supports for students and some understanding of students on the Ongoing Resourcing Scheme would be an advantage. Position to commence at the start of Term 1, 2022. 

Enquiries and visits welcome.
