Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura) is New Zealand's largest school and provides personalised and authentic learning programmes from early childhood to NCEA Level 3, including young adult and adult learners.

We are looking for a creative, innovative Kaiako (teacher) who's a subject expert in social studies and history to join our team in Christchurch, Dunedin, or Nelson.

It's an exciting time at Te Kura as we continue to innovate and transform the way we provide distance learning. In our online environment, we work with the latest technologies and are constantly growing in this space.

We're forward thinking and do things a little differently, but that doesn't mean no student contact! You'll interact with students at advisories, communicate with them using online tools and guide a group of students as their Learning Advisor. We are committed to seeing you grow with us and development opportunities often crop up within the school.

Interested in authentic learning, you model current pedagogy and are always coming up with new ideas. You're enthusiastic, collaborative, understand the key competencies of the New Zealand curriculum assessment practice and are committed to improving education outcomes for students.

Please note: On 11 October 2021, the Government announced that all school, early learning staff and support people who have contact with ākonga (students) will be required to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 15 November 2021, and their second dose by 1 January 2022. This requirement will include all Te Kura kaimahi (employees).
