What skills and experience we're looking for

Help us shape the future of Maths. We are looking for someone who would really like a flexible working week in our academies in the Northern region.

This opportunity has arisen due to some specific input from the DfE into the region to develop our mathematics provision for all students.

Pupils have had a turbulent few years in education and their experience of learning through these times will be varied depending on where they live and how the pandemic impacted them. We want to ensure that the knowledge gaps between those who have and those who have not had the best provision does not widen any further, we need to help them thrive! We are working with the Maths Hub to develop our teachers even more, and to facilitate this, we would like to release our teachers to observe each other, to work collaboratively and to receive specialist training. We know that the key to great outcomes in mathematics lies in setting firm foundations, building confidence and gaining trust in their teachers. This is why we are looking for a teacher to work with us, and these students, as a consistent, friendly face in the times their usual teacher is not in with them.

If you are considering a move to maths teaching from a different subject area this could be the way to expand your experience, into the mathematics world. If you have recently retired, but are missing the wonderful immediate feedback and energy pupils give you, but don’t want to commit to a full time return - this could certainly fit your needs. If you have stepped away from the classroom for a while, thinking about a return, but need to regain your confidence, this could be for you.

You will work alongside permanent teachers and their classes when you are in, sometimes with small groups, sometimes as support in the lesson and, once you feel confident, occasionally take the class in full to release the classroom teacher to observe other staff, to work collaboratively and to receive training.

Please note that this role is temporary in the first instance for the 23/24 academic year.

If you are interested in this role and want to talk about it more, contact Kathryn Greenhalgh, Executive Director of Maths, on 07590 351752 for an informal discussion. Alternatively call Andrew Cannings on 07872 990091 to arrange a visit to any of our academies.
