We are delighted to offer this exciting opportunity for an inspirational and talented teacher to join our supportive team from January 2020. Working with the Subject Leaders, you will monitor, support and drive the improvement of teaching and learning standards across the department so that teaching is at least consistently good, and student outcomes continue to improve. You will take responsibility of the progress, attainment and standards of a year group in mathematics. 

This position is a unique role as you will report directly into the Subject Leaders for Mathematics and therefore will concentrate on the curriculum and assessment for one year group, the teaching and learning and the coaching and development of staff in the team. This role would suit an ambitious and consistently good or outstanding teacher looking to develop their career as they move into middle leadership. You will get exposure to all aspects of curriculum leadership within the one year group you are responsible for. You will benefit from a balanced timetable and the support of a very able and knowledgeable leadership team. An ability to develop and inspire young people and contribute to school improvement is essential. The ideal candidate will be a mathematics specialist with experience of successfully driving standards within mathematics, particularly at KS3 and KS4.  

We welcome applications from colleagues who are passionate, willing to contribute to positive change and want to be part of a successful team in this exciting time for the school.  

To be successful, you will:

· engage and enthuse our learners through a commitment to outstanding teaching and learning;

· have high expectations of students and help to drive student aspirations;

· contribute to the development of a strong and forward-looking team;

· be innovative in your techniques to motivate and inspire young people;

· build positive relationships with staff, students and parents alike.
