    Fantastic and friendly staff who always update you on your application progress. Registration was pain free and easy, I was working within days. There are teaching positions nearly every day, so you can work as much as you would like.

    Despite working at Step Teachers for a short time, I have had a great time working with different schools/nurseries. The Step Teachers management team is so friendly and made my experience better and much easier, offering me good schools to work with. Great company, great team, and overall fantastic agency to work with!

    Absolutely cannot fault Step! Everyone there has been super helpful all the way from start to finish with my application. Continued support and some great opportunities in teaching too! From a final year BEd student working flexibly during my final year of study, hoping to go full time as of September, I cannot recommend them enough!

Frequently asked questions

  • As a teaching agency we need to ensure all safeguarding is in place before we can place you into a school and this isn’t optional. All candidates will need to go through vetting procedures and must fully comply with the REC’s Audited Education standards. We aim to make the process as quick and simple as possible to get you ready for work.

  • So, once you’ve found a promising maths teacher job and are content you’ve got the skills to match, there’s plenty you can do to supercharge your application and your chances of success.

    For most roles, you’ll need to fill out an application form and provide your CV and cover letter. You may also have to write a personal statement detailing your strengths and experience in teaching mathematics before being called for an interview. When writing your application, make sure to:

    • Do your homework – If you can, visit the school and get a feel for the teaching style and ethos. It’ll give you a better idea of what they are looking for.

    • Avoid silly mistakes – Make sure you check through your maths teacher job application carefully to ensure you’re answering the questions correctly.

    • Check spelling and grammar – Sure, you’re not teaching English, but it’s simply professional to thoroughly check for spelling and grammar mistakes before you send your application.

    • Make a great personal statement – Try to answer the criteria listed in the advert, explaining how you meet them and why you’re right for the job. Use measurable achievements as examples of your skills.

    • Ask for feedback – Always ask for feedback if you don’t get shortlisted. It can be invaluable in helping you to improve your next application.

  • The specific things you should focus on in your maths teacher job application depend on your experience.

    Early Career Teachers:

    • As an ECT you might not have much classroom work history, so be sure to highlight any relevant volunteering, placements and work experience you have undertaken.

    • Focus on skills you have acquired through your education journey to become a maths teacher and any extra-curricular activities you might have been involved in. For example, if you were captain of a sports team at your university, you could use this as evidence of your teamwork, communication and leadership skills.

    Experienced teachers:

    • Discuss your most recent maths teacher job role, what you learned from it and the skills and experience you can bring to the position you’re applying for.

    • Highlight any specific projects you have been involved with. For example, you might have been instrumental in fundraising for extra equipment at your last school or set up an after-school study programme for students.
