What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint to the role of Cover Supervisor to support our teaching team and facilitate the smooth and effective delivery of the curriculum across all school subject areas. The role of a Cover Supervisor demands flexibility and initiative. Your focus will be on supporting progress by providing classroom supervision for students whose regular teacher is absent. You will be expected to deliver pre-planned learning activities and establish productive working relationships with students in a stimulating and orderly learning environment.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to develop valuable skills towards a possible teaching career in the future or for someone who already holds Qualified Teacher Status and wishes to continue gaining experience within the education system.

If you have an appetite for a career in the classroom, are enthusiastic about building positive relationships with learners, are a strong team player and committed to your own professional development – we want to hear from you!

Qualifications required for the post are 4 GCSE’s grades 9 to 4 (A* to C) including English and Mathematics. A Level 3 certificate is also essential.
