NZ Education Gazette

Published by NZME. Educational Media under contract for the 18th consecutive year, New Zealand Education Gazette is the Ministry of Education’s official print and online publication to schools. It carries all official notices, school vacancies, and articles/case studies that will inform and inspire school and early childhood educators.

In addition to the free-to-list school vacancies and notices, Education Gazette publishes paid recruitment and display advertising and professional development and other notices relevant to the school and early childhood education sectors. Complementing the fortnightly print edition is the Education Gazette website, which attracts 2.3 million visitors each year. All free vacancy and notice listings appear on the website.
