What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, confident and skilled Cover Supervisor to join our team of professionals as soon as possible. The key role of a Cover Supervisor is to work closely with our students across a range of subjects and to ensure they maintain their learning in the absence of their regular teacher. Candidates will have strong organisational and interpersonal skills for this rewarding role and be relentless in their commitment to the success of all our students.

The ability to work calmly and often under pressure is essential. A good working knowledge of current ICT packages is required and previous experience of working in a school environment would be an advantage. However, we have a strong commitment to developing our staff so you can also expect to engage in a range of training activities. As such this is an excellent preparation for anyone considering a career in either teaching or supporting students’ learning.

What the school offers its staff

The most important thing you need to know is that Warden Park Secondary Academy is a fantastic school to work in! The academy is very well respected in the local community, has a long tradition for excellence and our students’ outcomes are very strong. Our students are excellent - generally above average ability on intake they have an excellent work ethic, standards of behaviour are very high and they are enthusiastic in their support of the academy evidenced, for example, by the very high numbers who engage in extracurricular activities. You will therefore not be surprised to hear that the academy is significantly oversubscribed for the 300 places on offer in Year 7 each year. Places in our excellent Special Support Centre (SSC), which caters for 24 students with Education Health and Care Plans, are equally sought after.
