Job Find Assistance Programme

If you’re a teacher who has graduated from December 2010 onwards and are looking for your first long-term role and/or you are a Māori or Pasifika teacher, then Education Personnel can assist you. Education Personnel runs a Job Find Assistance programme which aims to increase your chances of winning your first teaching role.

This one-to-one assistance programme includes working with an experienced education recruiter who will help you with:

  • reviewing your CV and cover letter
  • honing your work find plan
  • establishing job find goals
  • identifying any factors that might be holding you back
  • ensuring you are selling yourself in the best possible way to potential education employers.

Places on this programme are limited and interested teachers will undergo pre-screening to assess their eligibility for the scheme. TeachNZ scholarship holders, Māori, Māori speaking, and Pasifika teachers have first priority for this programme, however other places are available. Visit Education Personnel for more information.

If you're interested in applying, click the 'apply' button when you visit Education Personnel online. Fill out the online form and make sure you include the email contact details of least two referees who have seen you teach (associate teachers are good). Education Personnel will then get in touch with you. If you’d like to find out more, call Education Personnel on freephone 0508 TEACHER.

Here are some testimonials from teachers who have won roles after completing the Job Find Assistance Programme.
