Newton Dee Camphill Community is looking for international volunteers.
Hello,

Do you want to spend one year abroad and have a life changing experience?

 

Newton Dee needs your help. We are a charity in Scotland that supports adults with learning difficulties and we are looking for international volunteers who want to stay with us for a period of 12 months.

 

Our volunteers mean so much to our way of life, and we cherish the cultural diversity that they bring. These young volunteers who join us often tell us about how much their year meant for them. Volunteering here is not just about helping someone else, it is also learning about yourself, meeting challenges and growing with the experience.

 

You can find more information about Newton Dee on our website on https://www.newtondee.co.uk

Newton Dee is looking forward to hearing back from you.

Kaiārahi/Kaiako Matua/Kindergarten Co-ordinator Vacancy
Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten has two kindergarten locations on the Kapiti Coast, 45 minutes from Wellington. We are looking for an enthusiastic and flexible individual to lead our friendly and committed team from 2021 onward. We are looking to grow our kindergarten and playgroup sessions even further to meet our growing waiting list.

Ideally, this role as Kaiārahi/Kaiako Matua/Kindergarten Co-ordinator includes a teaching component. This is negotiable.

As a Waldorf kindergarten, it is part of Te Rāwhiti’s special character to provide a gentle, nurturing and child-centred early childhood experience, to support the individual development of imagination, will and confidence.

Registration as an early childhood teacher is ideal but not essential. If you are a state-registered ECE teacher, Waldorf training and/or experience is preferred but not essential as you will be working with experienced and supportive colleagues. It is essential that applicants are open to learning about and working with our special character, Waldorf education.

For the management elements of the role, applicants need to have a genuine interest and skill in process improvement and be able to manage administration, finance and compliance functions. Our ideal candidate will combine strong management and team building skills with the ability to be an active and open listener.

Most of the children attending Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten’s go on to join Te Rā Waldorf School (state-integrated primary school). The Raumati South kindergarten shares their site location with the school. The kindergarten Kaiārahi/Kaiako matua/Co-ordinator will therefore be a part of a large faculty of kindergarten and school teachers.

Ideally, the successful applicant is available during November and December 2020 to enable a handover. From January, the size of the role is 0.7 FTE if it includes the teaching component, or 0.5 FTE if acting in the Co-ordinator capacity only.

It is a unique role and can be adapted slightly to suit the right individual, so if you are interested please contact the office via email at executiveofficer@tera.school.nz for more information and an application pack.

Applications close 5pm Wednesday, 7 October 2020

Principal - Te Rā Waldorf School
Vacancy: Tumuaki / Principal
Te Rā Waldorf School
Kapiti Coast
U4, decile 8, state-integrated full primary school

He waka eke noa

We are looking for two enthusiastic and collaborative school leaders who still want
to teach and take Te Rā Waldorf School into the future with a unique co-principal leadership structure.

We are proud of our special character surrounding the children in a collaborative community of teachers, staff and whānau. We have a strong team of passionate and dedicated teachers delivering a rich, carefully chosen Waldorf curriculum.

The ideal applicants will have proven experience in an educational leadership role and the ability to apply knowledge and understanding of the Waldorf curriculum in the context of Aotearoa/New Zealand and while previous Waldorf experience is not a prerequisite, a commitment to work in accordance with the special character of the school shall be a condition of employment.

It is important that applicants understand Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and a commitment to exploring what authentic bicultural education can look like in Waldorf education in Aotearoa in the 21st Century.

If you are a strong and energetic strategic leader who relishes the opportunity to further grow Waldorf education on the beautiful Kapiti Coast, we’d love to hear from you. School visits or a remote tour would be most welcome and requests to do so can be directed to the Board of Trustees Chair.

The job description includes detail of the co-principal structure and is available with the application pack. Applicants can apply for a 0.8 FTE or 0.3 FTE role (or advise of interest in both).

Both principal role splits have teaching elements. However, the 0.3 FTE teaching responsibilities will depend on vacancies (there is some minor flexibility possible) and distribution of responsibilities will be dependent on successful applicants.

Please email chair@tera.school.nz for an application pack. Applications close at Midnight on Sunday 15th November 2020.
