We are seeking an enthusiastic, self-motivated professional to join our student support team as a cover supervisor, to play a vital role in the school. Covering for short periods of absence is a rewarding job and one that provides valuable experiences in the classroom, if you are looking for a stepping stone in order to get into teaching. You will need confidence, with the ability to inspire and enthuse our students, so that they maintain their learning in the absence of their regular teacher.

You will need good interpersonal and organisational skills to lead planned lessons, with the ability to relate to the young people in our school. If you can embrace a challenge we will give you fantastic support and the opportunity to work with a team of energetic and enthusiastic colleagues. You will be able to gain satisfaction from helping students meet their aspirational targets as well as offer them pastoral links as a tutor.

We will offer you

  • An identified experienced mentor and our Lead Associate Specialist Teacher, providing on call support where needed
  • Invaluable experience covering classes across all year groups
  • A shadow timetable when you are not ‘on cover’ to provide ample opportunity to observe classroom practice across a diverse range of disciplines
  • Classroom support/development and quality CPD
  • Access to coaching and regular feedback to develop your teaching expertise
  • A comprehensive induction programme and mentor
  • A range of benefits which includes cycle to work, access to a gym and swimming pool, free parking, an employee discount scheme, provision of an iPad, a commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition initiatives through the Trust’s people strategy and well-being committee.
  • A comprehensive induction programme.

If you have not heard from us within two weeks of the closing date for applications, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
