Teacher of English

Fixed Term - Part Time (0.7)
Starting: 28 January 2023  Ending: 12 December 2023
Applications close - 6 December 2022 3.00pm

An opportunity exists to join our English faculty. The faculty is very collegial, collaborative, supportive, and forward thinking in its approach. Its members are not afraid to take steps into the unknown if they believe it is in the best interests of the students. Many of this faculty co-teach classes and while this is not a must for all classes it does enhance the collaborative environment that is expected as a member of this team.

The ideal candidate will be open to engaging in learning about how to be more culturally responsive and willing to make changes to their practice to reflect this. Any experience with literacy and current NCEA knowledge would be valuable. Staff wellbeing and a student-centred approach are the two driving forces of this faculty, and the ideal candidate will place strong emphasis on this in their practice. The successful applicant will enjoy having fun at work both in the classroom and in the faculty spaces. We welcome applications from candidates who are open to learning and working within the kind of environment that we have described.

The role is currently a part time role teaching predominantly in English, supplemented by some Social Studies. Currently we are seeking a part-time staff member, or a full-time first year teacher. However, we are a growing school, and this may develop into a full-time role for the successful candidate.

The terms and conditions, including base salary, for this position is set by the Secondary Teachers’ Collective Agreement. The base salary for trained and registered teachers will range from $51,358 to $90,000, depending on applicant’s qualifications and experience. Individuals actual base salary will be established by a salary assessment once a role is confirmed
