The advertised vacancy is for a full-time, permanent teaching position, effective from 1 January 2014.  As is customary, the first year would be one of probation.  There would be an appraisal during the first year and at regular intervals thereafter.  This position has become available due the incumbent resigning in order to relocate.

The successful applicant will teach five classes of Mathematics, which will include some Lower Secondary classes (Years 8-10) and some Senior Secondary classes (Years 11 and 12).  The ability to teach Mathematics at the highest level in Year 12 is highly desirable.  Applicants must clearly indicate which Years 11 and 12 Mathematics courses they have taught and their capability to teach any other courses which they have yet to teach. 


Applicants should be team players who are willing to work co-operatively with other staff in the Learning Area.
