You are a native of Germany and teach German at a New Zealand tertiary? Then you should consider registering with the DAAD-Ortslektorenprogramm. This network has been in place for many years and supports the tertiary teaching of German language, literature, and culture. The programme affords you access to the web platform for Ortslektoren as well as possibilities for professional development. (In German only.)

Job Opportunities for Teachers of German

Demand for teachers of German is low at present, and teaching posts are only open to those with formal training in teaching German as a foreign language or several years’ teaching experience. Positions require that you have a New Zealand residency permit or a suitable work visa. Job opportunities come up from time to time at the Goethe-Institut and at local language schools, rarely at the universities.
