Tradewind are recruiting! Are you looking for you next role teaching Maths, would you like the opportunity to be 2nd in Charge at a school based in Islington?

Tradewind are looking to appoint a suitably qualified and talented Maths Teacher to join the Maths Faculty from January 2020. This client is a vibrant and exciting place to work, with a staff team who are committed to making a difference to the lives of young people. The school provides outstanding professional development for staff at all levels. Staff are proud to work at this client and for many good reasons.
Tradewind Recruitment are looking to appoint a passionate, energetic and ambitious Maths teacher who will support the leadership of this department into the next stage of its development.

Maths is a popular subject and the successful candidate will play a crucial role in helping students to achieve their potential and prepare them for the next stage in their learning and development. All students will study Maths throughout Key Stage 3 and 4. Your aim is to foster a love of mathematics and reasoning, so that students are confident and competent in real life application as well as prepared for their GCSE examinations.

In Key Stage 3, students follow a wide curriculum in order to successfully progress into Key Stage 4. They will cover number, algebra, ratio, proportion, shape and statistics in each year. Every year, students are selected to take part in the UKMT Maths Challenge, a nationwide maths competition.

They use the Edexcel exam board and recommend Casio Scientific Calculators for all students. Students have maths every day in Year 10 and Year 11. Requirements for the new GCSE Maths exam means students must have a strong problem solving ability and the demand of the course is much higher than the previous specification, especially to achieve a grade 9, the equivalent of a grade A**.

Overview of Key Stage 4: GCSE Maths is assessed over three exam papers taken in Summer of Year 11; a calculator is required for the final two papers. Students will sit either the Higher or Foundation Tier. They will study all strands of maths including number, algebra, ratio, proportion, shape and statistics in both years.

This school is based in Islington and being in central London there are many parking restrictions so parking would be difficult. This client is served by excellent routes and walking distance from a number of tube and train stations making this accessible from almost any area in London.
