    Default Anyone have experience with the teacher recruitment agencies

    Teach NZ has four listed on its site, http://www.teachnz.govt.nz/employment.html

    I've ruled out Multi Serve, as they seem to want only Britons or Aussies, but the others, Select, Oasis, and Education Personnel look like they'll take anyone as a client. [b:b4ed1ab5bc]Has anyone worked with any of them?[/b:b4ed1ab5bc]

    I'm a US-educated and certified secondary English teacher with 10 years of experience. I've worked as both a classroom teacher and an administrator, holding a principal's certification as well. I'll soon complete my CAGS (a degree that falls between a master's and a PhD) and be certified as a superintendent.

    I'd like to eventually move into administration in NZ, but understand that I'll most likely have to do time in the classroom before I could be considered for such a thing there. (Or am I wrong about that?)

    Any job-seeking advice for a teacher hoping to move to NZ would be appreciated! FYI, it looks like I'd want to start in July, 2006.

    Thanks! ::):

    Oasis were very good, a found work for my wife very quickly. But be prepared to work in South or West Auckland if thats where you're heading. Forget the (mainly high decile) North Shore, as nice as it is, I've got to know a few schools there and we're talking 150 applications for 1 position. But in Henderson or Otahuhu, Manukau etc, very very few applications. But don;t let that put you off. Decile 3-4 is on par with the best of the UK state schools, we've found in terms of behaviour.

    Best of luck!
