Have you recently graduated? Are you an experienced teacher looking to slow down and choose your own hours? If so we have the role for you! Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding, as well as demanding. There is a high level of responsibility and although there is always a teacher close at hand if needed, there is also a large amount of autonomy.

On a daily basis, cover supervision will include:

– Supervising work that has been set in accordance with the school policy

– Managing the behaviour of pupils whilst they are undertaking this work to ensure a constructive environment

– Responding to any questions from pupils about process and procedures.

– Dealing with any immediate problems or emergencies according to the school’s policies and procedures

– Collecting any completed work after the lesson and returning it to the appropriate teacher

– Reporting back on the behaviour of pupils during the class, using the school’s agreed referral procedures

The working day is always during school hours and term time only.

Many of our graduates have gone on to complete their teacher training after working as cover supervisors in our schools, this is a great way to gain experience and decide which pathway is right for you.
