Return to teaching
It's a great time to return to teaching, and there's currently a high demand for teachers. We've compiled some information to help you return to teaching.
New Zealand trained teachers
You might be qualified but not currently teaching. or Maybe you're living overseas and considering returning to New Zealand. There's currently a high demand for teachers, and now is the perfect time to return to teaching in New Zealand.
Returning to teaching after a break
You might have taken a break after having children, caring for others, working elsewhere or travelling. The TeachNZ website provides information to help you get back into the classroom.
If you’re a New Zealand trained teacher living overseas and considering returning to NZ, now is the time to make the move back home. You could receive a relocation grant, and get your overseas experience or additional qualifications recognised.
Teacher Education Refresh
You may need to complete a Teacher Education Refresh (TER) if you're a:
- qualified, non-practising teacher, completed your teacher training more than 6 years ago and are applying to become registered, or
- provisionally certificated teacher who wants to apply for another provisional practising certificate 6 years or more after becoming registered.
