Te āhua o te tūranga |The nature of the position

Experience Wellington is looking for an expert, enthusiastic educator to lead learning engagement for tamariki and rangatahi across our six sites: bringing to life toi, taonga and creative digital mahi. You will lead a team of Learning Specialists as they deliver a vibrant programme of New Zealand curriculum-linked experiences to support our four Ministry of Education-funded ELC contracts.
