Mathematics teacher

Thorndon, Wellington 

We are seeking an inspired and passionate teacher to join our Mathematics Department. This role ensures that our students and parents have a consistently effective and positive experience, and the appointee will have responsibilities within the Mathematics learning area that align to their strengths and professional goals. You will work within the curriculum and assessment team, and support the ongoing review and design of learning programmes.  Experience teaching IB Diploma Mathematics is preferred but not essential, along with a strong understanding of the NCEA and the NZC.

This is a permanent position starting at the beginning of term 1 2022

Queen Margaret College is Wellington’s leading independent girls’ school, providing a world class education for girls from Year 1–13, a boarding facility onsite and a co-educational Preschool. Our students are empowered to live, learn and lead in our holistic environment, which provides ample opportunities in leadership, sport and cultural activities. Although our school is built on the values of Presbyterianism we welcome girls from all religions and backgrounds.

We believe in the importance of girls’ education. Our College is small enough to ensure every girl is appreciated as an individual but sufficiently large enough to offer a full range of subjects, along with a range of sporting and cultural activities.

You must have:

  • A degree in mathematics or mathematics-related subject
  • An ability to teach statistics and calculus to a high level
  • An enthusiasm for learning and high expectations of students
  • A willingness to build positive relationships and collaborate
  • A familiarity with technology.

Nice to have but not essential:

  • Experience with IB programmes.

As an IB World school, QMC offers small class sizes, an attractive remuneration package, strong professional development and a supportive community. All staff are required to play an active role in the extracurricular life of the school.

If you want to be part of Wellington’s leading independent girls’ school and teach highly engaged students, send your CV, cover letter and application form (email to receive one) to the Principal’s Assistant [email protected] by 9am Friday 3rd December 2021.
