Are you enthusiastic about post 16 maths education? Do you have experience of supporting schools to improve their maths provision? Would you like to work flexibly on a range of teacher and student initiatives across an area?

The aims of the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) are to increase participation in AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics and Core Mathematics, to improve the quality of mathematics teaching, and to increase the number of students studying STEM degrees.

The Area Coordinator’s role is to coordinate support for students and teachers in state-funded schools/colleges in their geographical area of responsibility, in order to improve participation and provision for level 3 Mathematics.

You will play a key role in developing and implementing a strategic plan, working towards these aims in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region, and will work as a part of a team of Area Coordinators across the country to meet the KPIs of the AMSP contract. 

In liaison with the Regional Team led by the Regional Lead you will be responsible for the planning and management of support for schools and colleges in the teaching and learning of Level 3 Mathematics in your area, and for providing advice to these institutions on improvement of teaching and expansion of provision.

You will have extensive experience of teaching school-level mathematics, including at Level 3, and a good first degree in Mathematics or equivalent and a recognised teaching qualification.

You will work mainly from home but will need to visit schools, the University campus, or other locations for meetings or events.  There is scope to adapt the details of the Area this role covers to suit your home location.
