    Cool Canadian Teacher Trying to Retain Sanity

    Hey there. I am currently going through all the mass amounts of forms, fees, photocopies and whatnot trying to figure everything out to teach in NZ.

    It's frustrating and I was hoping there would be SOMEONE on here that I can talk to or get advice from.

    If that's you, please let me know!

    Thanks!

    You would need to be registered with the NZ Teachers Council to be able to teach in NZ. Have a look on our NZ Website List under Education Related to find some other links that may be useful.

    Yeah, I already am doing that process. It's a confusing thing, and seems like it's easier to apply for the Visa than to register with the Teacher's Council! Am off to Toronto tomorrow to have a background check done by the Japanese Consulate (as I lived in Japan for 36 months and therefore have to prove I'm not a psycho) .... among other things I *THINK* I am fairly organized with all the info I need.. it's just a matter of getting it all done RIGHT.

    Yes, it can be a tricky process and you need a clear head to dodge all the curved balls INZ throw at you. Good luck with it and, if you have any specific queries, give us a shout and we'll try to help.

    Default We love Canadians

    Greetings Canuck, Getting to NZ will be worth the effort.
    Consider this opportunity . . .

    Who wants to teach writing to adults?

    I administer a private training correspondence school for adult students. We have about 500 people studying novel writing, proofreading, editing, journalism, travel writing, romance, short stories, poetry, writing stories for children etc at level 4. It is a proper successful business.
    website = www. nzibs .co .nz
    That's me (Brian Morris) on the home page.

    I'm looking for my own replacement, so I can retire.

    I've been doing this for nearly 20 years and it has given me a great life and I've enjoyed it all. But now I'm in my autumn years and I'm ready to retire.

    Question: Who will take over from me? Could it be you?

    The ideal person will already know about teaching and administration. He/she will be somewhat entrepreneurial. A competent writer in English as first language. Handy with computers. Please email me or telephone for more details and a chat. If you call from England, remember New Zealand is 12 hours ahead. And our football team drew 1-1 with world champions Italy. All Blacks are quite a handy side too.
    But ice hockey and curling are minor sports here. Too much sunshine.
