Are you a dynamic Maths Teacher with an adventurous side seeking a new challenge? Look no further!
We are very pleased to be working on behalf of the Falklands Islands Government to appoint a new Maths Teacher to work within the main island secondary school, commencing in January 2020. This a truly exciting position and will offer the right candidate the experience of a lifetime.
The Falkland Islands is a British Overseas Territory, with a full internal self-government, it covers a land area of 4700 square miles (12,000 square kilometres) and a coastline estimated at 800 miles (1,300 km). The archipelago consists of two main islands: West Falkland and East Falkland, and about 776 small and very small islands, mostly uninhabited. The Falkland Islands are a small, thriving, self-sufficient community with a British way of life, benefiting from excellent local services, beautiful scenery and the glorious absence of traffic jams!
The FIG and the island will offer a warm welcome to the successful candidate (and their family!).
Education on the Falkland Islands is unique. The Islands have a small population, with big ambitions. It will be your job to help turn these ambitions into reality.
The successful candidate will be required to teach Key Stage 3 & 4 Maths up to and including GCSE within the secondary school located on the main island of Stanley. You will have a proven track record of successful Science teaching, ensuring the best possible progress and academic outcomes for students through planning and delivering engaging and differentiated lessons to a high standard on a daily basis.
Professionally, you will be a resilient and self-motivated individual, with qualified teacher status and at least 2 years post NQT teaching experience. Experience of teaching GCSE & IGCSE Maths within Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 is essential for this position.
Personally, you should have a sense of adventure, resilience and a love for the outdoors due to the remote and rural nature of this position.
