What skills and experience we're looking for

Bilborough College is a highly successful provider of post-16 education to approximately 1850 students. We are committed to excellence, innovation and opportunities for students in all that we do. We are looking for a Course Leader of Maths, with the opportunity to join a team which has recently delivered results for A level Maths in the top 10% of all schools and colleges nationally. This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to our students’ experience at Bilborough and to be part of a, “welcoming and inclusive” organisation where students are “proud of their college” and demonstrate “exemplary behaviour and conduct”, according to our most recent Ofsted report (Jan 2020).

This role is an opportunity for an aspiring or existing course leader, whose primary purpose will be to work together with the Maths team to enable students to make consistently outstanding progress whilst ensuring wellbeing of both students and staff. With assistance of the Head of Faculty, you will take operational responsibility for 2 / 4 courses currently offered by the department (the current intention being you would be responsible for A Level Maths and GCSE Maths and the other course leader already in post having Level 3 Maths Studies and A level Further Maths) overseeing improvement plans and responding to in-year information about student attendance, retention and performance.

What the school offers its staff

Teachers at Bilborough plan on average 6 x 90-minute lessons each week, each of which are delivered to 2 or 3 groups. In Maths, the students are trained to self-mark the majority of the homework with the remaining tasks being marked electronically on DFM or peer-marked in lessons. Homework is set for the whole of the year group which supports staff workload. Regular assessments (approximately 6 per year) are marked by class teachers. As a Maths teacher, you are required to run one subject support session per week which is open to every student, but you are not a personal tutor and do not have lunch/break duties. Each of the Maths classrooms have whiteboards all around the rooms which we use for group work, and we have a strong emphasis around using technology to develop student's learning, including use of graphical calculators for all A level Maths and Further Maths students.
