The Auckland region is serviced by several NHS units and includes Starship and KidzFirst hospitals.
Auckland Central unit is located within University of Otago House, Level 6, 385 Queen Street, Auckland City. Teachers cover the central and western suburbs plus the eastern suburbs to Sylvia Park.
NHS teachers work with school age students who meet Northern Health School admission criteria. Education programmes are planned in association with staff of the student’s regular school and may include Te Aho O Te Kura Pounamu (Correspondence School) subjects. An ILP (Individual Learning Plan) is developed for each student in association with their school of enrolment, parents and any others who may be involved in their wellbeing.
NHS teachers visit students in their homes and, depending on their health needs, students may attend NHS student support centre or their school of enrolment on a part time basis. When the time is appropriate, the NHS teacher will help transition student back to school on a full time basis.
When visiting students in the community, teachers have the use of a NHS vehicle; however should a vehicle be unavailable, teachers will be expected to use their own vehicle and be reimbursed according to the teacher’s collective agreement.
