Staff Structure

Te Kura employs more than 900 people across the country, including around 500 kaiako (teachers), 250 specialist and support kaimahi (staff), including kaiāwhina (ākonga mentors), student support advisors and those in school support functions.

In 2008, we set up tari (offices) and huinga ako (learning advisories) around New Zealand with the aim of strengthening connections with students, their whānau and their local communities. Increasing the number of staff working around the country has enabled us to provide more personalised and face-to-face support.

Staff structure

Our regional offices provide a base for the region’s teachers. Regional staff include regional managers and relationship coordinators who work with community and government agencies, schools and alternative education providers to coordinate regional initiatives to boost student engagement and achievement. Our liaison teachers work directly with students and families to provide extra support where required.Te Kura kaimahi are led by our senior leadership team.
