Employment Opportunities

In New Zealand’s current education market (as of August 2015), there is a high demand for particular teachers. Experienced Mathematics, Technology, Engineering, Business Studies, Physics and Chemistry teachers who teach to senior level in secondary schools are highly sought after in New Zealand. It can be harder for Primary teachers to get a role in New Zealand, however having additional skills in areas such as SEN, are Catholic or have specialist knowledge in IB PYP/ MYP, this will improve your chances of obtaining a New Zealand teaching role.

Demand is highest in the North Island and particularly in Auckland and Wellington, however some shortage subjects are in high demand throughout the country. Demand for teachers in all sectors is growing.
