We are seeking a person who is ready for new opportunities, who is enthusiastic, versatile and highly motivated to support learners with ongoing learning and behavioural needs.

You’ll be:

  • Working with a team of educators, caregivers and whānau, to help them understand the child and their behaviour, and create a personalised plan to support their learning and development.
  • Providing advice on the best learning environments and strategies to effectively manage the child’s behaviour, ensure their own and others’ safety, and support development of social skills to improve future participation, wellbeing and learning outcomes.
  • Facilitate access to wider services and support, in response to individual need, for example speech and language therapy and local agencies.
  • Applicants must also have a full driver’s licence as travel will be required.
