Working at Rangitoto
Staff at the College work in a highly collegial environment. Because of our large size, every faculty brings together a range of talented professionals, all of whom have special abilities and interests. A formal induction programme is in place for all new staff. Professional development is provided throughout the year to introduce the systems and processes of Rangitoto College to new staff, no matter what time of the year that they join us.
Following the announcement today, we will be delaying the start of our assessment programme until all Year 11, 12, and 13 students are back in school next Tuesday. This ensures that all students sit assessments under the same conditions.
