There has been an increasing demand for teaching jobs in New Zealand for Indians. The country’s labor market has grown, thus offering more job opportunities for teachers. The country is experiencing mainly secondary school teaching shortage in subjects like chemistry, Physics, math, technology and English. Teachers experienced in early childhood teachers are also in great demand.
Since 2007, new students and teachers have settled in. Before the teachers are allowed to teach NZQA (New Zealand qualification Authority) has to assess the qualification. This authority determines the start place to the teachers together with their pay scale. This only means that there are only publics schools in new Zealand because it is hard to determine the pay scale for the teachers.
Currently the schools are having difficulty in getting experienced or qualified teachers in certain field, which is why they are opting to bring in new Indian teachers in the country because they are best in those fields. Ever since before, Indian teachers have been in demand not just in New Zealand but in states like United States.
Back then, Indian from Tamilnadu and Kerala went to countries like Ethiopia and South Africa to teach in colleges and schools. New Zealand seeks new teacher especially Indians. Indians teacher have a good reputation there. They are believed to have incredible teaching skills and intellectual contribution to the society at large. Their dedication to teaching is amazing and also their work ethics is admirable which lacks in other teachers nowadays.
When teachers are being recruited in New Zealand, their communication skills is highly considered and their social acclimatization. This is always a major concern for most schools in New Zealand. The greatest demand for teacher in math, science and special education is high and only the best teachers in these areas are Indians.
Back in time, Indians in New Zealand were like the unfortunates of the place and most of them were immigrants. The teachers in New Zealand were from different states but not Indian. As evolving occurred, most of them stopped being illiterate and now they are professional in areas like medicine and engineering. It was hard for schools to consider the Indians as teachers there since they still believed they were inferior like before. But now that they have grown to be the best in teaching area along with the values, New Zealand has no option but to use them and adopt their culture.
Indians have occupied New Zealand and have a share in the population. Most Indians that come in as immigrants are part of them and have grown and had families. Students are opting to go to Indians Schools. If you take a survey now in Indians school you will realize that they are all almost full.
Indian teachers are believed to explain study subjects compared to others who offers very little explanations regarding the subject matter. In a city like Auckland, the schools are teaching Sanskrit Indians ancient language. It is believed that it builds the English language foundation. The schools are also adopting Indian culture plus it philosophical thinking. Sanskrit has an almost perfect grammar system and schools think that it could give the students a clear understanding of the language structure.
This language allows awareness of speech and a greater ability to pronounce word clearly. The language has caused a great success in most schools in New Zealand and that is why they want more Indian teachers. The Indian culture allows the students to have a meditation.
The schools are more different than before. The schools bring in Indian teacher to support the students with a good balance of discipline and love. The schools are choosing Indian teacher because they know they do not need to take months learning the culture and languages used in the schools. They are much easier to the education system or much less cheaper compared to other teacher.
At first, it gets difficult for new Indian teachers to cope with the new environment. The environment is full of undisciplined students, students who lack respect for authority and have an attitude towards education and maybe their future. It is these Indian teachers that are involved in transforming the students into better ones thus helping improve their grades.
Indian teacher are diligent and they persevere a lot. Indian teachers easily get job in New Zealand because they are able handle behavior problems posed by students. Sometime, some of them find it stressful thus causing them to quit their job. Some would persevere all this because of the natural environment and better quality and cost of living. Some would opt to change their career and continue staying in the country.
This means that the teachers need to be exposed to the behavior norms in New Zealand. To deal with this, most recruitment agencies ensure that they prepare Indian teachers for such situation. They are fore-warned of the kind of classroom respect they will not get.
They are advised by these agencies to get used to children addressing their teachers with their names and becoming culturally acclimatized. Indian teachers are well known for their good work. They even get to train other to become teachers like them thus lessen the number of unqualified teacher. Professional advancement for them is quite difficult as they tend to be more concerned with what they do and try to become best.
Teaching jobs in New Zealand for Indians will continue to have a place in schools, as longs as the Sanskrit language and Indian culture continues to be pursued in the schools. It is hard to explain why a country like New Zealand can decide to concentrate on Indians culture and language much in schools. It could be because Indians have highly populated New Zealand ever since they come in as immigrants in the country. But because it has shown great interest and success to schools here, then it remains to be the best in schools and its adoption will surely last. Sometime, one could wish to know such kind of language or even culture because you feel like it would have helped you in a way. So, should we say New Zealand is successful and lucky?
