LEARNING LEADER OF MATHS
MPS/UPS TLR 1B (£9378 per annum) plus a £5000 per annum Market Forces Payment
We are excited to announce we are looking to appoint a committed, enthusiastic and forward thinking Learning Leader of Maths for September 2017.
The College is a very warm and friendly school with a fantastic student body and dedicated and talented staff. You will join us at an exciting time as we continue our journey to become an outstanding academy.
We are passionate about caring for our students, ensuring that they are all known as individuals. Ofsted June 2016 stated that “everyone in the school puts pupils’ well-being at the centre of everything they do”.
We have high expectations of our pupils. Ofsted June 2016 stated “pupils know the high standards of behaviour expected of them” and “as a result, they behave well in lessons”.
Our vision for the school is to deliver outstanding education to our students, not only in terms of academic success, but by ensuring we develop the “whole child”. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.
As Learning Leader of the Maths department you will lead a department that is focused on getting results. Results are improving and although there was a dip in 2016, we want to ensure that standards improve with progress measures for all groups of students. However, we won’t stop there. We are committed to continual improvement and enhancing the outcomes for our students. As we embed our five year programme, incorporating a three year GCSE programme, we are aiming for a greater depth of understanding, problem solving and Maths mastery.
If you are an experienced and effective Maths Teacher looking for a new challenge, this is an excellent opportunity. We will commit to improving your pedagogy and your leadership skills and you will enjoy working in a school where the students are hugely positive and keen to learn. This is an ideal opportunity for a Learning Leader/Head of Department looking for a new challenge; an experienced second in Maths looking for their next promoted post or for an outstanding Maths Teacher with a proven track record and thirst for innovation looking to join us at this exciting time in the College’s development.
We recognise that to realise our vision we need to attract, develop and reward our people. We are an ‘Investor in People’, and are committed to the professional development and career progression of our employees.
The successful candidate will: ·
- Improve as a teacher through our tailored professional development programme (we run weekly training sessions that all staff have access to in addition to bespoke individual development) ·
- Have opportunities for promotion (in a relatively small College new opportunities for leadership and personal development frequently arise) ·
- Be supported by a performance management system that rewards excellence ·
