As the Harris Federation continues to grow, we are looking to appoint a new Mathematics Consultant to our central team of subject specialists. We need an outstanding, qualified Maths teacher who has a highly successful track record of raising achievement in order to drive further improvement across the Harris Federation. This post will involve working closely with our existing team of consultants to further raise standards.
The role will be multi-faceted and involve coaching and mentoring, sharing of best practice, developing robust improvement strategies, assisting Harris academies in recruitment and selection, helping to establish new departments or lead rapid recovery where required. The Federation operates twin Teaching Schools as well as a number of highly successful CPD Networks. The post holder would have the opportunity to play a key role in this work.
Who we are looking for:
The role of Maths Consultant is an exciting post providing enormous scope for a talented and creative practitioner to work alongside our established central team of Mathematics Consultants. We are looking for an experienced teacher with a deep passion for their subject. Our consultant roles are suitable for those with management experience (ideally but not necessarily at Head of Department level or alternatively be an aspirant Leading Practitioner).
The post would suit an ambitious middle leader looking either to broaden their subject expertise and responsibilities, or who is considering a future leadership pathway to their first headship. Although based at the Harris Federation offices close to East Croydon Station (with fast access to central London and the M25), the role will mostly be located within the academies.
What we are looking for:
- QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree
- At least 4 years' teaching experience, and at least two years in a management role
- The ability to teach Mathematics to A-Level
