This represents an outstanding opportunity to make an impact in a successful, forward-thinking school. We take pride in both the welcome we offer the whole community and the standards achieved by our young people. In our recent Ofsted report (May 2023) Northgate High School and Dereham Sixth Form was graded a ‘Good’ school in all areas.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, efficient, reliable and confident individual to work with our staff and pupils as a Cover Supervisor.

The position of Cover Supervisor is a very rewarding position, vital to supporting the teaching and learning of our students. The role is permanent and you would be instrumental in supporting our amazing students, assisting them by creating a culture of success and ensuring they have a positive learning environment to increase student attainment, achievement and social and emotional development.

You will need to be well organised and professional in your outlook with good communication skills and the ability to relate well with both students and staff; previous experience working with young people is desirable but not essential. However, flexibility, resilience, good numeracy and literacy skills and excellent communication skills will be key. You will have an interest in teaching and learning and enjoy the challenges of working with children. A full induction programme, training and support is provided.

This fulfilling position would suit someone looking to progress within an educational environment or embark upon a career change or start their career in education as this role is an excellent stepping stone to becoming a teacher.

You will be joining a school where staff share best practice so that our standard of teaching and support is both high quality and continually developing.

In return for the right candidate we are offering:

a competitive salary in line with MPS and UPR scales;

all the advantages of a successful academy group;

being part of an extended network of teachers and leaders who share and exchange ideas and continued professional development opportunities;

support from creative and innovative colleagues that will ensure your professional practice continues to develop;

a stimulating and friendly working environment where every member of staff is valued and makes a significant contribution to the school/college;

training and development opportunities;

opportunity of additional paid duties;

the opportunity for the exploration of educational practice through Masters and Doctoral degrees as well as funded research projects as part of Laboratory School accreditation;

contributory pension scheme;

private Health Care Plan;

access to high-quality musculoskeletal physiotherapy provision;

access to our Employee Assistance helpline for free and confidential advice.

We are proud to be the only University accredited laboratory school in Norfolk. As a Laboratory School we are committed to research-based practice which is strengthened through peer-to-peer learning, ongoing professional development and collaboration with other schools and partners.

If you feel you have the right experience, skills and enthusiasm, and would like to join our highly committed team, then we would very much like to hear from you.

Closing date for applications Thursday 13th June 2024 at 9.00am.
