Otahuhu College is a Y9–13 school in Auckland New Zealand serving a largely Pacific Island and Maori population. Our 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.

We are seeking an excellent fulltime/permanent classroom practitioner to join our Mathematics Faculty in late January 2018.   As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study. Our school has gone through a period of significant improvement in the past 4 years and we are looking for a dedicated teacher who will continue the good work and build on our students’ successes. The Maths position requires an ability to teach to NCEA Level 3 (A Level) with a strength in either Calculus or Statistics.

Extra-curricular activities play a big part in school life and teachers new to New Zealand benefit greatly from getting involved in the many sporting and cultural activities Otahuhu College offers.

We are looking for teachers with:

  • Evidence of excellent classroom practice
  • A track record of successful student outcomes at KS4 and ideally A Levels
  • High expectations of student attainment and behaviour
  • The willingness to go the extra distance for our students and their families

We Offer:

  • An established and comprehensive induction programme
  • A strong commitment to your professional development and career management - excellent CPD and leadership development at all levels
  • A supportive environment in which your enthusiasm will be encouraged, nurtured and rewarded
  • A working environment focused on Teaching and Learning and raising standards for all
  • A positive and stimulating school climate which values the contribution of all staff
  • An International relocation grant

Applications are encouraged from ‘Teach First’ programme graduates, as well from PGCE / B.Ed qualified colleagues.  We have an excellent record developing teachers in both practise and leadership.
