Full-time, Permanent Role

About the role | Te kaupapa

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

To be successful, you will have broad experience in the industry and a relevant qualification (i.e. New Zealand Certificate or National Certificate in Gasfitting) and be a Licensed Practitioner or hold a Certifying qualification. Plumbing or Drainlaying qualifications are also an advantage.

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.
