The College has recently merged with the local Southport FE College which lies approximately 2 miles away in the town centre. The merger is an exciting prospect for the College and is seen as an opportunity for both Colleges’ to expand and grow, both in student numbers and in the breadth of curriculum offered. The merger will provide a substantial provision to suit the needs of all learners in Southport and its surrounding areas. The vision is that the two sites will maintain their individual identity, Southport College will remain focused on Vocational, Apprenticeships and HE, whilst KGV will provide the A Level provision, developing HE subjects over the next few years.
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, highly motivated, and innovative teacher committed to enhancing our students’ achievement and experience in A level Mathematics at King George V College. The successful candidate will play a full role in sustaining and building on the high achievement of A level Maths at KGV. You will ideally be a graduate with a good honours degree and teaching qualification, have experience of teaching students of 16-19 years to A level, and be committed to our students, your subject and the teaching profession. We are, however, willing to consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and experience in education.
The successful applicant will be dynamic, innovative and enthusiastic and will bring a fresh approach to teaching and learning that will revitalise the experience for all students.
The Mathematics area currently consists of a team of one part-time and one full-time teachers.
