We are one of the top-performing colleges in the country, situated in the cosmopolitan seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Working here offers the combination of both a wonderful place to work and a great city in which to live.

We welcome applicants either interested in a full-time or part-time basis; please specify your preference (number of hours - FTE) in your cover letter.

The Maths Department

The Maths department is a large, innovative and dynamic team of staff, currently comprising nine full-time teachers and eight part-time teachers.  One of our full-time teachers is also a Head of Faculty and another co-ordinates the college’s “Flourish” project to support Widening Participation students and also teaches a ‘Level One qualification’ in British Sign Language. Teachers are expected to undertake course leadership roles as an integral part of their teaching commitment e.g. A1 Single Maths, GCSE Maths etc.

Maths is largely accommodated in nine dedicated classrooms, each with an interactive whiteboard.  In addition, there is a resource base in which subject extensions (drop-in workshops) are held.

Student outcomes in the BHASVIC Maths department are outstanding with well over 80% of single maths students and well over 90% of further maths students achieving A*-B grades each year.  In terms of value added, the overwhelming majority of its courses have been consistently operating at ALPS 2 level (above the 90th percentile of Maths providers in the UK) in recent years. We have extremely high standards for all our students and aim to develop their knowledge, skills and experience in a stimulating and varied learning environment.  We look to exploit diverse strategies of teaching, learning, motivation and tracking so that all students are able to access the understanding and knowledge needed to prepare them effectively for examination and beyond.
