We are looking for a Full Time Qualified Secondary or Primary trained Maths Teacher to teach very small groups (2-3 pupils) or one-to-one tuition for 5 days per week.
Mathematics at Woodlands:
At Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 14) pupils at Woodlands follow a scheme of work which is structured and written to help each pupil build upon their existing knowledge. The schemes are flexible and offer differentiation allowing for a tailored progression to the next level. Pupils study Number, Algebra, Shape and Space, Geometry and Measure, Probability, Statistics and Data Handling.
WJEC Entry level Qualification This provides a more relevant curriculum for pupils who are working below GCSE level. The assessment consists of one written examination paper together with Board-prescribed externally-moderated coursework. WJEC GCSE Mathematics and GCSE Numeracy The assessment consists of written examination papers taken at the end of the course of study. Two separate qualifications are available enabling pupils to obtain separate GCSEs in both Mathematics and Numeracy. GCSE Maths qualifications are designed to help students engage with and succeed in maths. At Woodlands pupils have the opportunity to build on existing mathematical skills and, when appropriate, acquire new ones, both with and without a calculator. Pupils are also able to progress at a rate that suits them, as they receive individualised tuition. Teachers recognise that pupils learn in different ways and although paper – based methods are very important (as the examinations are in that form); other methods including more practical/hands-on techniques, mathematical games and interactive computer exercises are also used when appropriate. WJEC Additional Maths and GCE AS and A level Mathematics are also available to pupils.
As well as offering qualification-based courses, we offer intervention lessons for pupils who need extra support in maths. These lessons aim at raising levels of understanding so the pupil can fully access the subject with confidence and reach their full potential.
Our intervention lessons use a mixture of resources and cover all abilities using a range of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic activities to appeal to all our learners.
Due to the expansion of Woodlands School a Full Time Qualified Secondary or Primary trained Maths Teacher is required for very small group (2-3 pupils) or one-to-one tuition for 5 days per week. Experience of teaching Entry Level Maths and GCSE is essential as all pupils complete qualifications in Maths. There is also the possibility of teaching to “A” Level standard for the right candidate.
This is a very exciting time to be joining the Woodlands team as it is recognised by Estyn as an excellent educational establishment across all areas of the inspection framework. The Head Teacher has introduced many strategies to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the school.
Woodlands School is well supported by the Directors, therapists and care staff. All staff work closely together to ensure that every pupil succeeds in all areas of life.
