Vision For Education are looking a high quality Maths teacher to work at a co-educational, independent specialist day school.
You'll inspire your pupils to see Maths not just as a subject they have to take, but as one they really want to. Elevating the subject by bringing it to life, you'll help our young people to engage with mathematics, so they see not only its numerical value but its importance in their daily lives. You'll be working with a broad range of abilities - some will struggle with the basics, while others with special talents in the subject might be looking at sitting their GCSEs early, or to take extra accreditations, like Statistics GCSE for example. We offer a full range of accreditations to suit varying abilities, so you'll tailor what you do and get the best out of everyone in your class. Demanding a special kind of attentiveness and flexibility, it's not your average teaching role, but you'll always have the very best resources at your disposal - including interactive whiteboards and robust TA support - so you can focus on inspiring each and every one of your pupils.
You'll be working with young people right up until the end of Key Stage 5. It will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure, but whether you've given a particularly inspiring lesson or helped a pupil with a presentation or exam arrangements, you can expect to take home a sense of having done something amazing every single day. As all teachers know, some of those days may be harder than others but, at Witherslack Group, you're never alone. You'll work as part of a collaborative team, not just with other teachers across the school and Group but with our in-house psychologists, family liaison officers and therapy professionals. All pulling together to create the best possible outcomes for our pupils.
The school works in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals as they recognise the importance of a collaborative approach to supporting the needs of children and young people in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Being part of Witherslack Group, the school is a leading provider of inspirational education and care to children and young people, resulting in life changing experiences and countless stories of success.
Witherslack Group provide specialist education and care for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, communication difficulties (autistic spectrum conditions; Asperger's Syndrome; speech, language and communication needs), ADHD and complex learning needs.
The benefit of doing a role like this is it feels good. Every day brings a sense of hard-won achievement and progress. There are also some outstanding rewards - in fact, the salary and benefits package is one of the best in the sector. It includes:
• A highly competitive salary
• Full school holidays
• Teacher pension scheme or a range of flexible pension options to suit personal circumstances (where applicable)
• A comprehensive, market-leading induction and ongoing training
• Extensive Group staff benefits, such as a Medicash Health Plan/Employee Assistance and Cycle to Work Scheme
• Free lunches
