Working & Living in New Zealand
To teach in New Zealand you will need your NZ Teachers Registration. This requires your overseas qualifications to be assessed by the NZ Qualifications Authority and a clear police check. You can then apply for a Practicing Certificate.
Once you have your NZ Teachers Registration you can apply for a work permit, for more information click here.
