Cover Supervisor job summary

We are looking to recruit a Cover Supervisor whose primary role is to provide supervision for students whose teacher is absent and to ensure purposeful and successful learning during this time. There is also the opportunity for candidates to extend the role to act as a form tutor. Flexibility to take on a variety of roles at those times when there are no absent teachers is required. This may include administrative tasks, invigilation and individual or small group support for students in lessons across the curriculum.

You will be joining a strong team of Cover Supervisors. Excellent training will be provided through an induction programme. We are looking for someone who enjoys building strong and effective relationships with young people and is able to develop students’ learning, using the resources provided. Ideally you will have prior experience working with young people. Resilience, flexibility and a good grasp of English and Maths are required, as is the ability to take on a role of authority whilst maintaining positive relationships. This is an excellent opportunity to take on a fulfilling role working with young people and to be part of a vibrant and supportive school community.

The post is permanent, term-time only, remunerated on Grade 6 and with the possibility of being remunerated on Grade 7 with the additional role of form tutor. However, the role would also be suitable for anyone planning to train to teach at a later date and can be offered both on a part-term and/or a temporary basis to the right candidate. Additional training and CPD opportunities will be offered, as appropriate.

Additional allowances

Grade 6 or Grade 7 with tutor responsibilities
