We know that exceptional Maths Teachers are in high demand which is why we are offering a recruitment and retention bonus of £2,000 for the right candidate ( £1,000 payable upon joining, and £1,000 payable after 1 year's service).
About the role: The Leigh UTC and Inspiration Academy has an exciting opportunity to appoint a motivated and engaging Teacher of Maths for January 2022. Our successful candidate will become part of a well-established, highly collaborative and successful team and we are confident that our teaching and support teams, our facilities and most importantly our students will inspire you. What better place to teach Maths than in a highly successful academy whose specialism for STEM is the overarching focus? As an IB World School, applicants that have previous experience in delivering IB Mathematics are of strong interest to us, but please note that this criterion is not essential.
As part of our STEM-based learning approach, problem-solving and employer links are at the heart of learning. With this approach we take pride in being extremely successful in all of our maths courses that we offer, boasting outstanding results in GCSE maths, Core maths, GCSE Resits, AS maths and Further maths. Our recent achievements in GCSE maths resulted in our students achieving in the top 10% nationally, with our disadvantaged students progressing more in all categories.
With the recent changes in GCSE and A-level, we have ensured that all our staff are sufficiently prepared, by encouraging them to attend relevant professional development related to mastery and problem solving. Our department is fully equipped with practitioners that are engaging in the most pioneering developments in mathematical teaching, and even leading professional development in Core maths to other centres. We have members of staff that are accredited PD leads for NCETM and Casio graphing calculators. Staff have also attended courses led by MEI and FMSP such as Teaching Advanced Maths, Teaching Further Maths, Teaching Statistics and GCSE Problem solving.
As a key priority, we are keen to ensure that students experience a rich mathematical curriculum. Our students regularly participate in competitions such as UKMT, Year 10 Maths Feast (FMSP), and events held by Universities such as King's College, Canterbury Christchurch, Cambridge University and UCL.
If you are seeking responsibility, there is scope to offer TLR1 £3,048 based on the successful candidate's experience.
