Four Agency Process
In order to teach in New Zealand, there are four external agencies that you will need to engage with. By working with ep.education, we can help you navigate these processes and answer any questions you may have.
Only a licensed immigration advisor can give immigration advice. Several of our previous overseas teachers have used Migration Associates to assist them with the move to New Zealand. If you'd like to speak to someone who can assist you with your visa application, then please click here.
What overseas teachers say about working with us
I have found the team at EP to be very supportive and understanding. EP has been able to find me weekly relief work in the ECE, Primary and Intermediate sectors. My relief experience I feel has continued to develop my own practice as an educator, which has given me more focus and drive on the next steps to getting back into the classroom full time.
I would like to acknowledge the fantastic support afforded to me by the ep.education team. I am a teacher from Ireland who emailed several institutions detailing my situation and desire to continue being a teacher in New Zealand. ep.education stood out from the start as they were the only group to personally call me about my situation. From that point on, the team worked tirelessly to find me a position that suited me. They acted as a liaison between myself and the school, immigration officials and ministry officials. Now I am in my dream teaching job and I certainly owe that to ep.education and the gold standard in care they had for me and my complex situation.
