Live Q&A

    • It was great to get the opportunity to address some of your burning questions about relocation at the end of our webinar. some of the questions we answered were:


If both husband and wife are secondary school teachers, can both apply separately for teaching positions?

Yes, each ‘teacher applicant’ including the main applicant and partner can either apply for their own visa or come over on the same visa (AEWV). This is for all sectors from ECE, primary and secondary. (Please be advised we are not a licensed immigration agent, further information on visa’s can be obtained by visiting:


Are there permanent teaching assistant positions available for foreigners?

To be eligible for a teaching position in New Zealand, all teachers would need to hold an eligible teaching qualification + teachers registration with the NZ Teachers Council.


Where can I find the pre-approval list?


Are there any arrangements made for where we would live?  Are we placed somewhere, do we need to find a place on our own?

Prospero Teaching is here to guide you throughout your journey to relocating. We can provide you useful recourses and tips however the applicant (being you) would be responsible for the costs and booking of flights and organising and paying for travel and accommodation. There are multiple options in regards to living in NZ, and we have a helping guide that we can provide when assisting you with your teaching journey.
