Areas we cover 

We have opportunities for Early Childhood (ECE), Primary, Secondary and Special Needs teachers in a variety of schools and settings, catering for the State, State Integrated and Private school sectors. Our reach is nationwide including both city and rural environments. 






If you are looking to teach in New Zealand, you will need to have the correct qualification and will have to register with the New Zealand Teaching Council. Most UK primary and secondary teaching qualifications are pre-approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, making registration easy. 

Early Childhood Teachers need to apply for recognition of their qualifications through the New Zealand Qualification Authority. 

Prospero can provide you with support when applying for your registration.  


UK nationals will require a visa to relocate and teach in New Zealand. We can provide you with more information on what visa you will require and support you through the application process.

Teachers will also be required to provide a police clearance check in order to teach in New Zealand.
