City, town or rural? Beach or mountains? Customise your lifestyle while working at a future-focused Christchurch school.

Rangiora High School, a large, uniquely-situated secondary school in North Canterbury is in search of a Technology teacher with an Engineering focus. Working with materials (metal & wood) and practical students in a very hands-on environment is central to this role. Bring your strong rapport-building to this broad technology department and become part of a team with a big future. 


- Students with a passion for the trades and working with their hands; 

- Modern learning environment and a well-resourced department;

- A team who works hard to ensure collaboration.

The school has recently completed a $15.5 million dollar building project and created flexible learning hubs to empower their 1600 co-ed students to take greater control of their learning outcomes.  Student voice, collaboration and creative-thinking are just some of the ideals that make up the foundation of Rangiora High School. 

Desirable skills and experience:

- Have a PGCE in Design Technology (or similar);

- Proven experience in working with wood & metal to senior level;  

- Industry experience is a bonus but not essential

Rangiora is a rejuvenated town located in mid-Canterbury, only a 30-minute drive into central Christchurch. The town is on an upward trajectory with new businesses being established frequently. Christchurch city is well-established as a popular place to live but if a quainter, semi-rural lifestyle is for you - the Canterbury plains are not far away! 

You may be eligible for a $5000 overseas relocation grant (ORG) from the Ministry of Education if you take up a school teaching position in New Zealand, or a relocation support grant (RSG) $3000 if you’re an ECE teacher.  Now is a great time to come and teach in Aotearoa!
