Teaching in New Zealand

There have been some significant changes to teacher supply and demand due to the impact of the global economic recession. New Zealand still has a need for well qualified, dynamic and enthusiastic teachers in certain areas:

Primary and Secondary teachers

In both primary and secondary, there is still a shortage of highly qualified teachers of te reo Māori and for Māori Medium teachers.

Early childhood teachers (ECE)

Demand for teachers who are speakers of te reo Māori and Pasifika languages is high.
