English National Programme (ENP) - part of the Lycée / Collège International de Fernery-Voltaire, France
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full-time Maths Teacher to join our committed team within a diverse international community.
Full time secondary Mathematics teacher: we wish to appoint a full time secondary Mathematics specialist to teach from year 7 up to GCSE Statistics, IGCSE Mathematics, and ‘AS ’level Mathematics. We are looking for applicants who are confident and effective teachers, have a passion for their subject and can create good relationships in class.
The Mathematics department: this is a compact and successful department that secures outstanding standards of learning and attainment. The curriculum gives pupils the opportunity to study Mathematics and Statistics in a way which complements the Mathematics which they also study as a compulsory part of the French curriculum. The department prepares students for GCSE Statistics (in year 10), IGCSE Mathematics (in year 11) and AS-level Mathematics examinations (in year 12). It has a record of its pupils achieving very good exam results.
The Programme: the English National Programme (ENP) is the English-speaking part of a French state international school, teaching several subjects in English as part of the French national/international curriculum. It is financed by parental tuition fees and governed by a parents’ association, ALA-ELP. ENP subjects are taught as if within an English school to pupils who are mother-tongue English speakers or have good second language competence; the main part of their studies is taught in French and is not fee-paying. ENP has over 1000 primary and secondary students of over 40 nationalities, and a staff of over 20. Pupils have to make a rapid transfer between French and English as they move between lessons which are taught according to the methods of French or English school systems. For this reason, the education ENP provides is ‘bicultural’ as well as bilingual.
Post requirements: we are looking for a well-qualified Mathematics teacher, with a good degree and genuine passion for the subject and with successful experience and very good results across age groups and exam groups with higher attaining pupils. Relevant recent experience in the UK State sector is an advantage. Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills in English are important; competence in French is less so, but candidates should have the motivation at appointment to gain this rapidly. We value team players who treat others’ ideas and practices as stimuli and resources, welcome change and innovation and who work well with others to deliver high quality teaching and learning.
The person appointed: s/he will be expert in using data to plan for and track student progress; confident in using ICT in class, committed to developing pupils’ motivation for Mathematics and to the teaching of subject and other skills as well as content. S/he will be able to give time and energy to enrichment and extra-curricular projects. S/he must be able and willing to travel between school sites as part of the working day.
We can offer: an attractive salary commensurate with what you have to offer us, as well as a relocation package and the opportunity to work within a unique and successful educational structure with motivated secondary pupils from a variety of backgrounds.
Contract: a permanent full-time contract of 22 contact hours, plus other duties, will be offered to the successful applicant. This contract will include probationary periods totalling four months.
Applications: If these details correspond to your profile and aspirations we look forward to receiving your application. Please see instructions on page 5 of the “Information Pack for Applicants” attachment. Please note: 1. We do not employ an application form. 2. No separate person specification is used. It will be useful to consult the other web references in the “Information Pack for applicants” before applying.
Deadline: your complete application, including your application letter and CV, must reach the Acting Head of Programme, Laura Martin-Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org, by 09:00 am on Tuesday April 24th.
Interviews will take place shortly after in Ferney-Voltaire during the week commencing Monday 30th April.
