We're working with the best advisors to ensure we're at the forefront of education in NZ, and so we're looking for a motivated, innovative and talented teacher to be part of this journey.
 
As the local face of Life Education, your ability to build relationships with local schools and understand them as the customer will be key to successfully meeting their needs and ultimately assist with their children's learning. You will also have strong organisational skills, enabling you to plan each term in advance, maximise your teaching time and achieve our goal of reaching every child, every year.
 
The successful applicant will be a qualified teacher, with full registration and a current practicing certificate and be able to demonstrate sound knowledge of the NZ curriculum.

"The investment in my development such as Inquiry Learning, Teaching as Inquiry, Effective Planning, and creating a professional portfolio  has been invaluable and I am definitely going to take the many skills that I have learnt, back with me into the school classroom.  I have learnt so much and I honestly believe that had I not had these opportunities, I would not have been offered a job in a management role at a school, one I visited regularly as a Life Ed Educator."
