18 - 30 hpw (to be agreed) 8.50am - 3.45pm, 39 weeks per year.

Fixed term contract until 31 August 2021. 

Required from 1 September 2020.

We are looking to appoint a Specialist Mathematics 1:1 Support Assistant to join our hardworking and friendly mathematics faculty.

You will ideally have experience of working with students, although this is not essential. The ability to relate to young people is essential, as is a passion for mathematics and the ability to share this with our students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who may require encouragement to engage in their learning experience and support to help them attain the best grades that they are able to.

It is also essential to be a team-player but also able to work with minimum supervision, knowing when to seek support and advice.

You will:

  • need to be calm, patient and firm, with an ability to empathise with students who find mathematics difficult
  • have a flexible approach to all aspects of the job role
  • need to have good communication skills and be able to foster good working relationships with students and colleagues
  • have excellent organisational skills.

You are required to have a good working knowledge of Microsoft products, English GCSE Grade C or above and an A level in mathematics or relevant experience.

Interview date: w/c 13 July 2020 .

Farlingaye High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share and adhere to this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to provide satisfactory references and undertake an Enhanced Check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
