Academic Vacancies

Train to Teach Mathematics at Chigwell

Are you a new Mathematics graduate or looking for a change in career? Chigwell School is looking to recruit enthusiastic individuals who have the potential to become outstanding teachers.

Chigwell School is seeking to recruit either a career changer or a recent graduate to train as a Teacher of Mathematics through the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT programme (NMAPS)

This is an exciting opportunity for a mathematician to qualify with QTS as a specialist teacher. Our training is fully funded, with close mentorship and support provided throughout.

The SCITT approach differs from traditional teacher training in the following ways:

Four days per week will be spent in the classroom at Chigwell School

One day per week will be spent at one of two SCITT training schools, chosen by the trainee: Barnet or Dulwich.

Trainees will receive a tax-free bursary of £28,000 or scholarship of £30,000 (subject to availability) from the Department of Education, and can take out a student loan if required to cover the tuition fee of £9,250.

Trainees will complete a six-week placement in another local school to broaden their experience and ensure they are fully prepared to teach in a wide variety of different schools.

At the end of the year, trainees are awarded with both qualified teacher status (QTS) and a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) from Buckingham University

The department

Mathematics is one of largest departments at Chigwell School and a popular A Level subject. The department is well resourced and enjoys a strong reputation, with excellent Public Examination results, and a number of leavers each year going on to pursue mathematical studies at university, including at Oxford and Cambridge.

This role comes with considerable benefits. As a trainee at Chigwell, you will receive a competitive starting salary and all teacher training costs will be covered. Other benefits include membership of the pension scheme, free lunches during term time, free on- site parking and the use of the newly opened Sports and Wellness Centre facilities. Following completion of training, many teachers choose to continue with us for their Early Career Teacher (ECT) years and beyond, often advancing into positions of responsibility, with pay increases to match.
