    Default Are there Teaching Assistants in NZ

    Hi everyone, I currently work as a TA in the UK i specialise in special needs. I have 5 years experience and have been looking for work on various vacancy web sites but when i put Teaching Assistant into the occupation box it always says no vacancies found.Do they go by a different title in NZ or is there no need for teaching support ? i would be very greatfull if anyone can help.

    Regards,Cradley

    Yes, they do have them in NZ. This is just one such job ad I came upon but I would add that it is a very old ad.

    Course they do mate! They're often not advertised though. My daughters school just advertised for three in the school newsletter that comes home every week. That's where you'll find a lot of them.

    Hi Cradley,

    My finer half provides one-to-one learning support for a wee lass with cerebral palsy. There are a few specialist providers around - try somewhere like here - Conductive Education New Zealand
