Job summary

Cover Supervisors

Grade 5, currently £20,092 - £20,493 pro-rata, plus Crawley Allowance (Actual salary equates to £17,249 to £17,584 incl. Crawley Allowance)

Are you considering teaching as a possible career, but not sure it is right for you?
Do you enjoy working with children?

Then why not consider becoming a Cover/Study Supervisor to gain experience in the classroom. Many of our cover supervisors have successfully moved into teaching and have commented how invaluable working within the classroom environment has been.
We are looking to appoint Cover Supervisors to supervise whole classes undertaking pre-prepared activities provided by a teacher during the short term absence of a classroom teacher. The primary focus is to maintain order in the classroom and to keep pupils on task. Some invigilation of exams is also expected, as well as supervision of small groups of students on educational visits under the direction of the designated group leader.

The successful candidates will be able to demonstrate robustness & resilience as the role can be extremely rewarding but very demanding. It is important to be able to maintain a level of calm and have excellent communication skills with both adults and young people. It is essential to have good organisational skills, ability to multi task and act as a role model for students. Past experience of coaching or leading young people would be beneficial. This post is ideal for candidates who are looking to progress into a teaching role. Ifield Community College has a fantastic succession plan for NQTs and has an outstanding track record of supporting NQTs through their teaching career. This succession plan would also be available to Cover Supervisors if they wished to develop their career into teaching.

We are a ‘Good’ school and we have excellent facilities in a state of the art building, which is situated in a pleasant location only 30 minutes to both Croydon & Brighton, by rail or car. The school is expanding to take on additional students due to its popularity.

A supportive induction programme is provided for all new staff.
