As part of our ongoing efforts to attract top talent to our schools, the New Zealand government is offering a $10,000 relocation grant to eligible overseas-trained teachers.
This grant is designed to help cover the costs associated with moving to a new country and can be used for expenses such as flights, temporary accommodation, and other relocation costs.
New Zealand's education system is highly regarded internationally, and the country is known for its beautiful natural environment and friendly, welcoming culture. Overseas-trained teachers who choose to relocate to New Zealand will have the opportunity to work in a supportive and dynamic education system while enjoying all the country has to offer.
As a teacher in New Zealand, you will have access to ongoing professional development opportunities, support from experienced colleagues and a strong teaching community. Our schools focus on providing a high-quality education for all students, and our teachers are valued community members.
If you are interested in applying for the $10,000 relocation grant, you will need to meet certain eligibility criteria. You must hold New Zealand teacher registration and have a job offer from a New Zealand school or centre. Once you've started your role, you'll be able to apply for the grant as a reimbursement for your relocation costs. You can read the full criteria here.
Overall, the $10,000 relocation grant is an excellent opportunity for overseas-trained teachers looking for a change of scenery and a new challenge.
It provides a financial boost to help with the cost of moving to New Zealand and opens the door to a rewarding career in the New Zealand education system.
