Dollar Academy is seeking to recruit a permanent, full time, enthusiastic and suitably qualified teacher of Mathematics beginning in August 2018. The post would suit both a newly qualified teacher or a more experienced teacher looking to broaden their experience. This post offers the opportunity to join a large and successful department at this prestigious 5 – 18 HMC school of 1200 pupils. Dollar Academy is set in a beautiful central location, about 40 minutes north of Edinburgh.
We are looking for a capable and enthusiastic teacher with the ability to inspire and motivate pupils in Mathematics. An honours degree in Mathematics or a closely related subject is required and the ability to offer a second subject would be an advantage. We are looking for an individual who demonstrates a genuine love of the subject, enthusiasm for teaching it and an imaginative, creative and energetic approach to helping pupils to share this enjoyment. Computers, interactive technology and web based resources are now an intrinsic part of Mathematics teaching and fluency with these, together with a thoughtful approach to their use, is essential.
Knowledge of the Scottish education system would be helpful, but is not essential.
The Academy has a rich co-curricular programme in which all members of staff are expected to participate. The ability to coach a team in one of the school’s major sports, or offer an activity, would be particularly useful.
The salary for the post will be in accordance with the SNCT main grade scales with the Dollar enhancement of 10% in addition. It should be noted that the Chartered Teachers pay scale does not apply to teachers employed by the Academy. Employees whose children attend the Academy are eligible for fee remission.
Candidates should either be registered with the GTC Scotland, or eligible for registration.
Further details about the post are available on the Academy's website, together with our standard Teaching Staff Application Form which must be completed and submitted with a covering letter. A CV is optional.
These should be emailed to email@example.com
The closing date is Tuesday 20 March 2018.
All appointments are subject to receipt of a satisfactory PVG Scheme Record or Scheme Record Update from Disclosure Scotland.
