About the role

You will be responsible for delivering, and training district teams to deliver, a range of training, implementation and coaching services to support Mathspace customers and help them understand how to best utilize the program.

A large part of this role includes being an in-classroom coach, where you will coach individual teachers before, during and after lessons to move towards a shared vision for blended learning best practice.
