About the role | Te kaupapa

Key responsibilities of this tutoring role include facilitating teaching, learning and assessment for Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drainlaying ākonga, with courses including a strong hands-on practical learning component.

Teaching qualifications and experience are not essential for this position, however you must possess the following qualities to ensure you have the potential to quickly grow into an effective tutor: patience, adaptability, positive attitude, good communication skills and a reasonable level of physical fitness.

Successful applicants without teaching qualifications will be supported to achieve a Certificate in Adult Tertiary Teaching or similar tertiary teaching qualification through on-job training and development.

To be successful, you will have experience in the industry and a relevant qualification (i.e. New Zealand Certificate or National Certificate in either Plumbing, Gasfitting or Drainlaying) and be a Licensed Plumbing Practitioner or hold a Certifying qualification. Applicants with multiple licence classes will be at an advantage, but we are also interested in talking with Plumbers, Drainlayers and Gasfitters, as there is scope to specialise.

The role is based at WelTec’s main campus in Petone. Applicants will be required to undertake a police vetting check in order to work with young people and should hold a current driver’s license.
