The Co-operative Academy of Manchester is seeking an experienced, talented and ambitious Maths teacher who is ready to develop into a highly effective leader.

We welcome applications from Maths teachers at any stage of their career, whether already experienced in subject leadership or taking their first step up.

The academy is currently embarking on a significant expansion programme and as part of an £18 million extension, a brand new Maths department is being created. The Maths faculty is currently being led by a very experienced Assistant Vice-Principal, who is prepared to stay in this role to mentor our next Director of Maths. This is an ideal opportunity for the right candidate to develop their leadership with the direct support of an experienced colleague.

If you are keen to make a difference, develop your leadership ability and embark on a clear career path to senior leadership, then we want to hear from you.

The Co-operative Academy of Manchester opened in September 2010 in a new build and is sponsored by the Co-operative Group, which is one of Manchester’s largest businesses. The culture of the Academy has a strong ethical stance, using the Co-operative’s values and principles to inspire individuals in the academy to develop as global citizens.

In 2013, the academy was the most improved school in Manchester and our recent Ofsted inspection in November 2014 rated the academy "Good" with many outstanding features.

A competitive salary will be offered if the successful applicant can show:

  • A commitment to the values and beliefs of fairness, ambition and respect
  • He/she is a good classroom practitioner and able to motivate, engage and inspire students.
  • A strong commitment to the students and raising standards
  • An interest in professional development and progression
