It’s toym to come home and teach in New Zealand

Get your Kiwi accent back, along with all the other things that are awesome about home: clean air, room to move, a modern education system, great students and safe schools - plus that ’mint-as’ sense of humour.

And right now, teachers like you are in high demand throughout New Zealand, which means you can be sure of a warm welcome back.

 

You could get up to $7,000 towards your relocation costs

You could get one of a limited number of Overseas Relocation Grants worth up to NZ$7000 to cover your costs. But hurry – demand for these grants is high.

To find out more, contact one of the Ministry of Education’s contracted recruitment agents and they will get in touch with all the info.

Even if you’re not quite ready to head home, it’s well worth having a chat with them so they can give you all the help you need to find your perfect teaching position when the time comes.
