Teacher of Mathematics - Full time/Part time

Salary: MPS + SEN allowance

Contract type: Part time/full time, permanent

We are looking for a maths specialist whose subject knowledge, pedagogy and enthusiasm will engage even the most reluctant learner.

We are looking for a hard-working, successful, traditional teacher, who can quickly build positive relationships with young people and adults and who wants to have a transformational impact on the lives of the most disadvantaged young people.

Who we are looking for:

• A qualified teacher with experience in alternative provision or mainstream, or an NQT determined to combine professional development with life-changing teaching.

• The subject knowledge and classroom practice to teach across Key Stages 3 and 4.

• A commitment to motivating learners while challenging and supporting them to achieve their potential.

• Organised, resourceful and proactive.

• Desire to continually improve own teaching and classroom practice.

This is a part-time or full-time, permanent position up to NQT/MPS + SEN allowance.


NWKAPS is an alternative provision for students who might otherwise face exclusion from mainstream school. Our small pupil numbers mean you can make a real difference to pupil’s learning and life chances once they finish school: over 96% of last year’s students successfully achieved their choice of post-16 destination.

By mainstream standards, our teachers have tiny class sizes and plenty of PPA time to prepare high quality lessons. We have a sensible marking policy, three data drops a year, a behaviour policy that’s supported by an active, visible SLT, and we put student and staff wellbeing first in everything we do.

We focus on students’ learning and the quality of our teaching, with CPD, career development and instructional coaching for every teacher, lesson observations that are about improvement not judgement, and a focus on evidence-based teaching in classrooms.

Our students study GCSES as well as a range of Level 2 qualifications and vocational courses in a large, bright, well equipped school building with several purpose built spaces including a beauty salon, workshop, sensory room, and best of all for busy teachers, a coffee shop with an industry standard coffee machine.

NWKAPS is part of Alternative Learning Trust.

Background to Alternative Learning Trust

The Alternative Learning Trust became a multi-academy trust (MAT company number 11788031) in June 2019. There are now three schools within the Trust, The Limes College, North West Kent Alternative Provision Service (NWKAPS) and Will Adams Academy. The Department for Education would like Alternative Learning Trust to consider other alternative providers.

The Trust has been established to work with Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) and alternative providers who support vulnerable students to access and engage with education. Many of our students have special educational needs and have been excluded from mainstream education.

As a Trust we have the following core set of values for our staff and the families we support:

  • the need for people to flourish in all areas of their lives;
  • we are stronger through a sense of community;
  • social justice is vital.


Safeguarding Statement:

North West Kent Alternative Provision Service is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
