Head of Mathematics

Reigate CollegeSurrey

With an exceptional reputation both locally and nationally, Reigate College focuses on outstanding teaching, learning and support to make it one of the best sixth form colleges in the country. Graded outstanding by Ofsted, the College is a great place to work and study, with an active and supportive community ethos at the heart of everything it does.

The Post

The College is seeking to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic, and hardworking Head of Department to lead and manage the Maths Department. The successful applicant will be required to teach A Level and GCSE Maths. The ability to offer Further Maths would be an advantage.

The post is available from 1 September 2021 on permanent, full-time basis. The full-time teaching contact time at Reigate College is 22.75 hours per week. Heads of Department receive two periods of remission (2 x 65 minutes) for their responsibility. New Heads of Department receive an additional two periods of remission during their first year as part of the College’s induction programme to provide them with extra support in their role.

Our ideal person will be able to demonstrate a track record of success in delivering the highest standards and achieving outstanding results. The post holder must be confident in the use of information technology in all aspects of their work.

The post would equally suit an experienced Head of Department or someone looking for their first Head of Department role. The post holder will be supported in their role by Course Leaders for each course.
