We are now looking to appoint an experienced, dynamic and enthusiastic Mathematics Teacher with the ability to teach in all key stages to start in September 2019.  The ideal candidate will be someone who teaches for understanding, can think on their feet and who will be able to stretch students as well as be willing to be challenged academically by them.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding role model within the Mathematics Department and Doha College as a whole.

At Key Stage 3 our teaching programme is topic-based and incorporates problem solving and enquiry based learning. Key Stage 4 examination courses include IGCSE mathematics, GCSE statistics and IGCSE Further Mathematics. The subject is extremely popular at Key Stage 5 with around 100 students choosing to study the International A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics courses at AS level; most of these students will continue to study the subject at A2.  There is a significant breadth to the modules we offer at A Level to support the talents of our students.

All our classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards and displays and all students are furnished with an iPad upon entry. Alongside an academic focus, we also offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, aimed at increasing learning of the subject. Our students participate in the UK Mathematics Trust as well as the University of Waterloo Challenges. Enrichment activities within the department include celebrating mathematics through Pi Day, Fibonacci lessons and House competitions.
