Job Description

Kaiako (Transition)
Fixed Term, Full Time (1.0 FTE)
Based in Hastings

Are you excited about the future of learning?
Do you want to work with the latest technology?
Keen to be part of a collaborative and innovative culture?

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 transition to join our team in Hastings, Central North.

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. This position requires someone who has empathy with students who have been out of the education system. You will bring your experience working with at risk youth. Must have good diagnostics ability in multiple facets of child development.

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.

This position is specifically for a Kaiako to work with ākonga (students) referred through the judicial system and requires an exceptional individual who has the background to assess  and diagnose individual ākonga  educational needs in order to put in place an appropriate programme for each ākonga.
