Kaihautū

E ngā reo, e ngā mana tēnā koutou katoa.

In 2011, Unitec embraced a Māori Success Strategy to provide a framework to give effect to Te Noho Kotahitanga.  Te Noho Kotahitanga is a partnership document created to express Unitec’s commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi.

At the heart of this strategy is the aspiration to improve the outcomes for Māori students of Unitec.

This is an exciting time to join a sector that will transform vocational education in New Zealand for future generations. This is your opportunity to be at the forefront of this change.

The position

With the work that you do, you’ll contribute to the improvement of Māori student outcomes (retention, success, progression) at Unitec through the embedding of mātauranga Māori in programmes.  You’ll also undertake special projects and tasks as requested by the Director – Māori Success.

Please refer to the position description for further information about the position.

Ideally you are skilled in te reo and tikanga Māori and you are able to lead consistently through tikanga Māori.

You’ll hold a tertiary qualification in a relevant discipline, as well as a demonstrated successful background in tertiary education. You’ll be familiar with academic processes of tertiary education institutions, including an understanding of successful teaching practices and learning processes and understanding of current issues in curriculum and pedagogical theory and practice.
