Te reo Māori and PE teacher

Full time, Permanent

This superb dual full-time position of Māori and PE teacher is an integral part of our Steiner/Te Ao Māori focus and our physical skills based learning. The fortunate appointee will have the support of a full school (Y2–13) kapa haka programme, a keen staff and a low student/teacher NCEA PE class ratio.

Applicants will need a strong feel for the cosmological/spiritual world of Te Ao Māori, which aligns strongly with a Steiner spiritual perspective.

An accomplished physical capacity and experience in NCEA Level 2 and 3 is imperative.

This position is 10 hours Māori, 7 hours PE with Steiner specialty Main-lessons and a high school class sponsor. We will consider separate applications.

Applicants will need to engage warmly and purposefully with students from 10 to 18-years, to be whānau focused and great team contributors.

Steiner experience would be preferable but not exclusive.

How to become a Steiner School teacher in Christchurch.

Teaching in a Steiner school is one of the most rewarding vocations. Our aspiration as teachers is to inspire young students in their relationship to the world, in their love for their fellow humans on earth, to give them skills to effectively create a future for themselves and to find their own unique individuality.
We attempt to create Teaching into an Art form that elevates our vocation into something very meaningful.

Trained teachers with a Bachelor of Education, or with a post graduate diploma, or untrained teachers can enrol in a one or two-year course at Taruna College in Hawke’s Bay, the country’s only dedicated Steiner Training institute.
The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) offers a 3 year Bachelor of Education (Steiner) in both Early Childhood and Primary. The Federation has developed a part time 2 year In Service "Certificate of Rudolf Steiner Education" for practising teachers which is taught at Taruna.
Each school has an extensive ongoing Professional development programme in
both Steiner and State best practise and principles

Untrained teachers would be required to complete a Bachelor or equivalent degree before being employed by the school.
Taruna also offers refresher courses for all teachers throughout the year. They provide Steiner based courses in many areas including nursing, art, and agriculture.

Teachers who have been trained overseas and wish to teach in New Zealand, or have qualifications that could be cross credited towards education qualifications, will need to have their qualifications approved by the NZ Qualification Authority.
