What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed Cover Supervisor to join our staff in this integral role. Your primary duties will be to provide classroom cover during the short-term absence of a teacher, supervise students, implement set work and generally assist students to undertake and engage in the set learning activities to support their learning.

Other duties could involve administrative/technical support to subject departments, examination supervision and accompanying school trips.

This post would be ideal for an ECT or an aspiring teacher who wishes to develop their experience in a classroom.

Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential, as is the ability to work both as a team and independently. Previous experience of working with young people is desirable and the ability to contribute to the wider life of the school would be an advantage.

Working hours are 35 hours per week, 44.07 weeks per year (term time) although there is some flexibility in the hours.

You are advised to submit your application as soon as possible as, on occasion, we reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the advertised date, if we have received sufficient applications that meet the criteria, or a suitable candidate is found. We advise you to submit your application as early as possible to prevent disappointment.
