All teaching positions at Mount Aspiring College are advertised in the Education Gazette. This can be accessed online at www.edgazette.govt.nz However, we do have a very stable teaching staff and there may be only two or three positions each year. We have the current vacancy:
We require a Teacher Aide to start immediately, to provide support to a very high needs male student. Preferably applicants will have had some experience working with autistic teenagers, although this is not essential. Being physically fit, and using initiative, empathy, patience, and a sense of humour are essential. Personal services will be required. This position is for a minimum of 21 hours per week, term time only, to the end of 2014, or until the student leaves.
Applications close at 4.00pm Friday 29 August 2014

We receive many expressions of interest and unsolicited curriculum vitaes each year. The following information may be helpful.
Applying From Overseas
We are fortunate in that we usually receive a good field of applications for any positions advertised. If you are seeking to emigrate to New Zealand and wish to obtain a teaching position prior to travel, you may be advised to look in areas where there is a real shortage of teachers, such as many rural areas and some of the lower decile city schools.
Here are some websites that may be useful to you:
If you are planning to move to Wanaka anyway, and you have secondary teaching qualifications, we would be interested in meeting you and holding your CV on file.
We have a fairly stable pool of relief teachers although we are always interested in meeting new teachers who have moved to the area and are looking for relief work. You do need NZ teacher registration if you wish to work for more than ten days as a relief teacher. It is unlikely that we would have enough relief work to rely on this as your primary source of income.
Our outdoor programme is staffed in the main by qualified teachers with a specialism in outdoor pursuits.
We also employ Outdoor Pursuit Tutors, particularly with qualifications in Rock or Kayak, who work with the teachers during afternoon practical sessions during Terms One and Two, and for a few weeks during Term Four. These are part-time, casual positions only and could not be relied on as a primary source of income.
If you are living in Wanaka and have relevant industry qualifications we would be interested in hearing from you.
Support staff positions are generally only advertised locally and on this website. If you live in Wanaka or are planning to move here, and have had experience in a support role in a school, you are welcome to send your CV to email@example.com for us to keep on file.
We are particularly interested in hearing from qualified or experienced Teacher Aides living locally as vacancies arise regularly and sometimes at short notice.
