Deputy Online Learning Lead

Join us on an exciting project to develop our virtual learning programmes. As New Zealand’s specialist school for Deaf and Hard of Hearing ākonga, we’re reinventing how we design and deliver online distance teaching and learning for our staff and students. This role reports to our Online Learning Lead and is part of our Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting team. 


You’re an experienced and skilled facilitator with current practice in online distance teaching and learning. This means you can ‘walk the talk’ and are comfortable sharing your practice with colleagues. Your areas of expertise will include Universal Design for Learning, learning design and educational taxonomies – all of which means you are really passionate about the potential of online learning to improve education outcomes for learners! 

You will lead and demonstrate commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the bicultural partnership that underpins our work. 


As our Deputy Online Learning Lead you’ll work across our diverse team of over 200 specialist Teaching and Learning staff to support their online distance teaching with our Deaf and Hard of Hearing ākonga. We have some exciting pilot programmes in development already, so you’ll draw on your current experience of leading change as you contribute to the design and evaluation of these. 

This position has a 0.4 teaching component so current teacher registration is necessary. The practical outworking of this is negotiable – your time will be invested in leadership, support, PLD and teaching.


Ko Taku Reo Deaf Education New Zealand is a nationwide team of teaching, learning and professional services staff who share a passion and enthusiasm for delivering high quality education and services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students and their whānau.
