New Zealand trained teachers

In New Zealand, there is a shortage of teachers in Māori-medium primary and secondary schools, as well as a high demand for secondary teachers of science, technology, mathematics and te reo Māori. There is also a high demand for teachers in Auckland and many isolated areas. Additionally, teachers are in demand for relief (supply) teaching.

If you have a New Zealand teaching qualification and have been teaching overseas, there’s some things you need to get sorted before you come back to New Zealand. We may also be able to help with your relocation costs.

Or maybe you’re a Kiwi teacher who’s had a break from the classroom. We can help you get back into teaching. Check out what you need to do in this section.
