Call to arms...
Do you teach the “Butterfly Method” for adding fractions? How about “Float and Ping” for solving equations?
If so, don’t apply for this role. Is a consistent, coherent, well-scaffolded and well-sequenced approach to teaching maths your way? Do you relish the intellectual challenge of thinking through such approaches and making lessons and resources for teaching that align with this principle? If so, please apply for Lesson and Resource Designer at HegartyMaths where this will be your full time job.
What you'll be doing...
You will create lessons and content that will be used by thousands of students and teachers. As such, you will play a crucial role in development of our existing resources that support the teaching and learning of maths across multiple key stages.
What we’re looking for…
an exceptional knowledge of the primary and secondary UK maths curriculum;
a clear understanding of scaffolding maths lessons;
a strong track record for assessment design;
a passion for creating first class resources to support the teaching and learning of maths;
excellent time management and organisational skills with an ability to prioritise a heavy workload;
laser focus and remarkable attention to detail;
superb IT skills across a range of softwares (Excel, Smart Notebook, Desmos, Word);
excellent standard of spoken and written English and first-class communication skills;
experience teaching KS2/KS3/KS4/KS5 students desirable (at least 3 key stages essential);
HTML and Latex knowledge desirable.
Remuneration and benefits…
This is dependent on your experience, skill set and current salary/role.
27 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays. Every day you will be making a difference.
