The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is based in high quality, newly developed facilities.
We are seeking to appoint a graduate in mathematics or a related subject with substantial experience of teaching Further Mathematics at A-level to take on the part-time role of Further Mathematics Support Programme Area Coordinator for the East of England.

Supporting teachers with STEP and AEA mathematics
Organising activities and events to promote level 3 mathematics to key stage 4 students
Advising schools and colleges on their mathematics provision and organising professional development for teachers.
The successful candidate will have substantial experience of teaching Further Mathematics at A-level, outstanding organisational and project co-ordination skills, excellent communication skills, excellent IT skills, the ability to build and maintain good professional relationships, and will be a confident and enthusiastic teacher with a passion for mathematics.
