We are seeking a dynamic Maths Teacher who can demonstrate their commitment to driving up standards, expectations, and aspirations, so that staff and students regularly experience success and a sense of progression, whilst acting as a role model for staff within the department.

The successful candidate will determine the pedagogy and methodology of delivery for all lessons within the department; observing lessons and ensuring all members of the department observe other practitioners regularly to promote high quality teaching.

The successful candidate should be committed to improving the lives of the young people at Jewellery Quarter Academy.

What the school offers its staff

The successful candidate will be joining a vibrant learning community with national award-winning credentials. The Trust works collaboratively with leaders to ensure our CORE Values are promoted, embodied, and celebrated by all the staff and children in our schools. You will:

  • be provided with a provision of support and training to foster a positive culture of wellbeing for all students and staff

We place a strong emphasis on supporting and encouraging personal development, which includes:

  • a CPD strategy that is designed to support the career aspirations of all staff to help them realise their potential.
  • access to experienced mentors who have a strong track record of developing staff

This is an exciting time to join the trust. We are about to embark on the next phase of our evolution as an outward facing, forward thinking family of schools guided by a vision underpinned by optimism, ambition and oneness.

Jewellery Quarter Academy is a team that holds the highest ambitions for students, rooted in love, care and respect for all our community. We consider all of our students at JQA our ‘gems’ – their futures are so precious. Our mission is to support our students to go on to shine in society: to become the leaders of tomorrow. Great GCSE grades and a depth of character around our CORE values are two ‘golden’ keys to opening these doors to students. Our committed team is focused on one goal: to improve the life chances of our students so they go on to shine in society, and we put each young person’s interests at the heart of every decision we make, working with parents and carers in collaboration and partnership. We only succeed as a team. We also take advantage of our city-centre location to offer exciting opportunities to students through our many established partnerships. Alongside an ambitious academic curriculum that both supports and stretches students to achieve the best possible qualifications they can, we offer a broad range of enriching opportunities in sport, the arts and citizenship to build confidence, character and open doors to new possibilities. We develop by taking on new challenges. We are proud to be an Academy that passionately promotes tolerance, compassion and individual responsibility and welcome students from all faiths and backgrounds. Everyone is welcome, looked after, cared for and respected here. We care by respecting and looking after each other. Excellence is the expected here at JQA: from staff and students. We have the highest expectations of our students in terms of uniform, habits for learning, representing themselves and the Academy in the community and, of course, academic performance. We achieve by giving 100% in everything we do. We are privileged to be located in an historic area of Birmingham, rich in heritage, and we believe it is important for our students and staff to connect with this vibrant history.
