He karanga tēnei ki te hunga e kai ngākau nui ana ki te kaupapa o Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.  Mā te hoe kotahi ka haere kotahi atu

We invite applications from passionate, professional and energetic individuals for the Relief Kaiako / Tutor position.  Relievers are vital positions within our service as they enable continuity of delivery when the regular kaiako are absent due to sickness and other leave periods so we avoid cancellation of classes and disappointment for the learners.

About the role:

This role involves variety and will call on your expertise as a Tutor as you will be required to relieve for several programmes inclusive of L1 and L2 Literacy and Numeracy Support Services.  Delivery of these services as a Reliever may involve any of the following:

  • Delivering assessment with the Adult Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Tool (ALNAT) and interpreting results
  • Developing individual learning plans, ensuring successful completion of unit standards and service requirements
  • Presenting material to tauira, responding to tauira learning needs, and evaluating tauira progress
  • Implementing Individual Learning Plans and facilitating learning sessions to increase tauira knowledge, skills and competence
  • Utilising teaching materials such as handouts and study materials as required to support learning
  • Maintaining records of tauira assessment results, attendance registers, progress and feedback
  • Delivering assessment with the ALNAT and interpreting results
  • Ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements including those of the Department of Corrections

Reporting to the Team Lead, your expertise at establishing and maintaining strong relationships with Department of Corrections’ kaimahi, other tertiary providers delivering educational programmes in prisons, and relevant external groups within the region/s will be invaluable. 

What you need:

  • A Diploma in Adult Education or Teaching
  • The National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (NCALNE) (Level 5)
  • NZQA unit standards 4098, 11281 and 18203
  • A minimum of 2 years’ experience successfully delivering Literacy and Numeracy training to at risk or second chance learners is essential and delivering Literacy and Numeracy training in the prison context is a distinct advantage
  • A full NZ Driver’s License (Class 1) 
  • The ability to pass a stringent Police check to enable access to Department of Corrections Facilities
  • A moderate level of fitness is required to enable access to classrooms on-site

You will complete the Department of Corrections on site induction in addition to the Te Wānanga o Aotearoa induction process.
