Full time fixed term 

We seek a suitably qualified Veterinary Nurse, or Veterinary Nurse Assistant, wishing to pursue a career in animal care education, to fill a parental leave lecturing position for the Otago Polytechnic School of Veterinary Nursing, starting October 2018 for up to 12 months.

Our core business is delivering excellent education to learners studying Animal Care, Veterinary Nursing Assistant, Veterinary Nursing and Rural Animal Technician both on campus and via distance education.

The role will primarily involve programme supervision, curriculum delivery, student pastoral care, marking of assessments, and provision of quality feedback on the NZCAC across the breadth of the programme.  Experience either in a formal teaching role, or mentoring students in work placement, and/or a qualification in tertiary teaching is highly desirable, however support will be provided.

You will hold a Veterinary Nursing Assistant qualification or higher, and have relevant experience in animal care facilities, and preferably be registered with the NZVNA or equivalent overseas body.  You will have great communication skills, be a team player, and be digitally literate as this is essential for online learner support and marking.
