What skills and experience we're looking for

Rye College is seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor on a one-year fixed term contract. This is a new position created with the aim of increasing the quality of cover lessons and supporting our teaching staff by adding capacity to the school. We are driven by a pursuit of high academic standards regardless of background and a desire for all students to experience an exceptional education.

This role would suit perfectly a somebody that holds a degree and is interested in the teaching profession, or wishes to learn more about teaching before committing to further education. Success throughout the fixed term contract could lead to a fully paid route into becoming a qualified teacher (or to a permanent Cover Supervisor position). This position will be paid all-year on the Unqualified Teacher salary range, meaning the successful candidate will be fully paid throughout all school holidays.

We welcome applicants with or without experience working in schools, and full training will be provided to the successful candidate.

Our ideal candidate will:

  • Be interested in teaching and willing to learn a new role;
  • Understand the importance of community within a small secondary school;
  • Be enthusiastic, energetic and open to innovation;
  • Possess effective communication skills and be emotionally intelligent;
  • Possess effective ICT skills and be open to new uses of technology in the workplace;
  • Be committed to extra-curricular activities including lunch time activities;
  • Be committed to continuing professional learning;
  • Be able to show confidence when managing behaviour;
  • Have integrity, optimism and a good sense of humour;
  • Hold a good honours degree.

What the school offers its staff

In return, we offer:

  • A happy community committed to the professional development of all colleagues;
  • A distinctive local context ensuring we place inclusivity at the heart of all we do;
  • A motivated leadership team leading rapid improvement to the students’ life chances;
  • The opportunity to progress your career directly into being a qualified Teacher, without paying to train;
  • A college in which the students are enthusiastic, engaging and thoughtful;
  • 13 weeks ‘off-site’ time during school holidays;
  • 23.6% employer pension contributions.

We would be pleased to welcome you for an informal visit to our school prior to application.

Rye College is committed to safeguarding the young people in our care and we expect all our staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check.

Our mission is to 'create bright futures for all'.

With this in mind, we work hard to ensure that every child is happy and well supported on their educational journey with us. We want every child to grow and flourish in our care.

Our college is set in the attractive heart of 1066 country and is a place where students feel safe and have space to learn. We pride ourselves on being a close knit community where students are known as individuals and where their talents are nurtured.

We are part of a family of schools that serve the young people of Rye from two to sixteen years of age, truly making us a 'local community college'. We are driven by a pursuit of high academic standards regardless of start points and a desire for all students to experience an exceptional education.

Our aim is to challenge every learner to exceed their own expectations of themselves; create a can-do culture and the resilience to excel; include all members of our community through shared endeavour; and nurture diverse skills, talents and abilities whilst celebrating excellence.

Since November 2018, Rye College has been part of Aquinas - an educational trust of eleven schools in the south-east; we believe our students will benefit enormously from our shared ambition to excel. We are proud to be working together with Aquinas to build on our reputation for supporting students in realising their potential and going on to lead fruitful and productive lives.

We look forward to leading Rye College on the next exciting stage of our development.
