We are looking for a LEARNING COMMUNITY LEADER for our new entrants team- Heretaunga Ararau.

Our Learning Community Leaders are experienced teachers, who know and love our unique NZ curriculum and really enjoy working with tamariki and whanau. They understand that all children and teachers are unique and need differing levels of support. They work hard and are consummate professionals who are driven to make a difference.

You will have had some experience in leadership of other teachers within your current school and will have shown that you are well organized, can influence people and can earn the respect of those you work with. You will be capable communicator who can form relationships with tamariki, teachers, whanau and the many agencies our leaders work with.

 You will lead a hard-working, passionate, tamariki-centred team of teachers and learning assistants, within a large, diverse and growing culturally responsive school. As LCL of our new entrants team, you will be passionate about Learning through Play and how to spark passion, creativity and enthusiasm for learning. You will see learning holistically with literacy and numeracy as important competencies. You will understand how to support the transition from ECE for Tamariki and Whanau.

 All our teachers work in ‘Duplex’ (two adjoining and open responsive learning environments). Ideally, you will have worked in a collaborative teaching and learning environment before. You will understand what it means to be culturally responsive and what this means for the way you work as a leader and as a lead teacher.
