Otahuhu College www.otahuhucollege.school.nz is located in NZ’s largest, most culturally diverse city, Auckland and we are looking for an experienced Digital technology-ICT-Computing teacher to commence a permanent post in term 1, late January 2020.
Our school serves a largely Pacific Island - Maori local community. The students in many cases come from first or second-generation families who moved to New Zealand for a better life and for better opportunities for their children. Our school has gone through a period of significant improvement in the past five years and we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study.
We are looking for a dedicated practitioner who will continue the good work already in place and build on our students’ successes. A team player, you will need to be reliable, motivated and someone who can inspire and excite our students. Applicants will ideally have experience of delivering the UK (or similar) High School ICT Computing curriculum to all school year levels. Industry experience in areas of leading-edge computing such as, software development, robotics, 3 D print, cloud networking, digital design technologies, mobility, productivity and or creative technologies will be a great asset.
All applicants must be qualified teachers with a degree and trained-teacher qualification. Remuneration will depend on qualifications and experience and will be set according to the state pay scale as laid out in the NZ secondary teachers’ contract. You should be eligible to apply for a NZ Ministry of Education International Relocation Grant of NZ $5,000 if you are an overseas trained teacher or NZ $7,000 if you are a returning NZ trained teacher.
The whole process of coming to NZ to teach and live can be a daunting prospect but support and assistance through the emigration process will be available to the successful applicant.
