The Manaiakalani Education Trust (MET)

is offering a fixed term, full time position to the end of the 2015 school year.

The role would ideally suit an experienced educator who is looking for an exciting challenge in their career. Facilitator training and support will be ongoing and equipment provided. The applicant would be based in Auckland in the Manaiakalani Schools and some travel to the regions during the year would be required to support other school clusters as they transition to a digital learning environment.  This could suit a classroom teacher who could be seconded for the year or an experienced facilitator looking for an exciting opportunity.

Initially the applicant will be working alongside and supporting the existing facilitators - you will not be 'thrown in at the deep end'!

The PLD team currently consists of two full time facilitators, Dorothy Burt and Fiona Grant, and a number of part time facilitators released from their schools.

Everyone in the Manaiakalani learning community follows the 'Learn Create Share' framework and works in highly collegial networks - across schools, across year levels and across traditional 'boundaries' such as primary/secondary.

The application process is:
Email a cover letter to with an expression of interest.
Include experience in teaching and opportunities you have had to work with adult learners.
Please include links to your online presence eg blog/s, wikis/sites, etc

We anticipate appointing quickly so we are not expecting a traditional CV for this position.

We would expect you to contact people from within the Manaiakalani cluster to find out more and to make the most of the extensive online presence of the Manaiakalani schools to familiarise yourself with the Manaiakalani programme in action.

Preferred start date is Term 2 or soon afterwards, though we realise the successful applicant may need to negotiate with current employers.

Salary will be in line with experience
