Job description

Required for September 2020
Mathematics Lead Teacher
TMS/UPS + SEN 1 + TLR 2.2 (£4,655)

Meadowbrook College provides full and part-time education and support to children aged 5 to 16. We provide a high quality, safe learning environment in which to develop positive behaviours and skills for students who have been permanently excluded from school. We also offer a broad range of preventative programmes and support to enable students to access education in order for them to enhance their life chances beyond the college. Our staff work hard to ensure our young people achieve the best outcomes they can by creating individual educational packages which meet their needs and which equip them with the skills and attributes they require for their next destination. Our hope for our students is that they will re-engage with learning, be successful and achieve their goals. Our aim is for every one of our students to move on to college, school, an apprenticeship or employment.

We are seeking to recruit a talented and skilled KS3/4 Mathematics Teacher who is also able to lead the subject across the college. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced teacher with the ability to inspire and motivate students and staff alike; a unique opportunity to make a substantial contribution to further improving outcomes for a significant group of vulnerable and challenging learners and to shape and develop Mathematics provision across the College. We are looking for applicants who are willing to work in either our Banbury or Oxford base. Leadership of the team will require you to travel across our sites (Banbury, Oxford) and support the extended team.

As Mathematics Lead Teacher you will be:
- a skilled practitioner in the classroom, with a proven background in managing challenging behaviour
- experienced in working with KS3 and KS4 students and excited about the opportunity to work with our primary students to develop their numeracy and Mathematics skills
- relentless in your approach to both engaging our students in and with Mathematics, and securing them the best academic outcomes
- ready to lead a small team of secondary and primary colleagues in developing their pedagogy and practice and to together shape the development of the Mathematics curriculum
- highly motivated, with a passion for your subject
- have bags of enthusiasm, patience and perseverance

Why work at Meadowbrook College?
- Meadowbrook College staff are both professional and resilient. There is a “can do” attitude that makes a real difference to the lives of our students; many of whom have become disengaged with education and lost the confidence to achieve their full potential
- We offer a variety of opportunities for ongoing professional development for all staff
- We are working in an ever-changing and expanding educational climate where the need for alternative provision solutions is increasing. Our provision is always adapting and new opportunities are always evolving.
