New Zealand School Assistant
It’s hard not to fall in love with New Zealand, with its wild, glacial landscapes, geothermal hot springs and adrenalin-pumping activities, and there is no better way to call the “Land of the long white cloud” home and experience everything it has to offer than on our gap year teaching assistant program.
Letz Live will assist in finding you a placement in one of New Zealand’s leading schools, where you will assist qualified teachers in a variety of curricula subjects, as well as be available for after school sports and activities. We will cover all meals and accommodation expenses during term time, as well as a weekly allowance, and when school holidays come around, you are free to go exploring the furthest reaches of New Zealand’s beautiful North and South Islands.
Head out “tramping” along one of the country’s legendary trails, test out the powdery white slopes on its world-class ski fields, or get your adrenalin going on a thrilling bungee jump. For outdoor lovers, there is no better place in the world to immerse yourself in nature and feel like you are truly alive! New Zealanders are also known for their laid-back, easy-going attitude, and the friendships you make here are sure to be some of the strongest in your lifetime.
Our team at Letz Live will assist you every step of the way - from finding your placement and organising your visas, to providing ongoing support throughout your placement to ensure it lives up to all your expectations.
From you we require a mature and professional work ethic, teaching dedication, and a positive outlook in the face of challenges. In return you will get a life-changing experience that will not only help you grow significantly as an individual, but create a network of friends throughout the world while exploring one of the Southern Hemisphere’s most captivating countries.
