You’ll be an experienced Maths Teacher, able to carry maths through to Level 3, work with differentiated learning and assess in a number of creative ways. You’ll have a successful track record of designing and delivering inspiring lessons to teenagers, have a genuine love for teaching this age group and the ability to relate to and support them.

Cardiff Steiner School is a dynamic and growing, independent Steiner School. Steiner Education is the largest and fastest growing independent school system in the world. It offers an inspiring and nurturing education based on the needs of the whole child – academic, physical, emotional and spiritual. Our distinctive, international curriculum integrates arts and academics into a rich, balanced education that ignites a passion for learning.
Set in Wales’ capital city, the School currently has pupils from Kindergarten to Class 10, with the school growing with them up to Class 12 by 2020. You’ll join us on an exciting stage of our journey. Founded in 1997, we opened our first classes in 2012, built upon the firm foundations of 15 years as a successful Kindergarten. From strong roots we’ve quickly grown, and opened our Upper School for age 14 to 18/19 in September 2017.
We offer the Certificate of Steiner Education (NZCSE) – the first trans-national, secondary school qualification to be fully based on the Steiner curriculum. It is a valid, alternative secondary school qualification that allows students to progress to further/higher education free from the restrictions of GCSE and A level curricula and examinations.
We are a pioneering bunch with an irrepressible spirit who enjoy rising to the challenges and celebrating the joys that a young School brings. Our internationally diverse teaching team includes subject teachers in Bothmer, Music, Handwork, Woodwork, Spanish, Games, as well as a team of specialist Upper School Teachers.
We offer a collaborative environment where you’ll benefit from a supportive professional development programme of mentoring, peer observation and training in delivery of the NZCSE. We operate a two-year combined class system and you’ll have the advice and support of teachers experienced in working with the pedagogical needs of combined classes. We are a UK Steiner Waldorf School Fellowship Associate School, and are fully independent.
The post is eligible for a tiered Staff Fees Discount Scheme with up to 85% off school fees for children of staff members, depending on family income. We have staff with property expertise who can help you find and secure suitable accommodation to rent or buy.
