Cover Supervisor

Cover Supervisor Needed -Sevenoaks Secondary School - Immediate Start Available

Do you want to work with secondary age students but don't want to do all the planning and preparation that comes with teaching?

Do you want to be a teacher but need the practical classroom experience to apply for a course?

Cover Supervisors come from many walks of life but they all share a passion for being in the classroom. Whether you want to become a teacher or not this could be the role for you.

You will need a basic understanding of standard safeguarding policies and some experience working with secondary age students. You could be a former youth worker, a sports coach, summer camp volunteer or a teaching assistant looking to step up. You could even be a teacher or tutor looking to move away from all of the paperwork.

I am working with schools across Kent to provide cover supervisors for short, medium and long-term posts. One such school, in Sevenoaks Kent, are currently seeking a cover supervisor for a regular posting in its secondary site.

A cover supervisor is a classroom based role supporting a qualified teacher or covering for a qualified teacher in their absence. You will not need any subject specialism although if you have it will be a benefit. You will offer support across all areas of the curriculum and with age groups from year 7 to year 13. You will deliver pre-planned lesson material and supervise behaviour during class whilst ensuring that a safe and inclusive learning environment is maintained. You will not be expected to plan, prepare, mark or assess work. For those candidates with a passion for working with children but without the qualifications this can be an ideal role.

In order to succeed in this role you will be able to demonstrate:

Ability to work with groups of students of secondary age
Strong behaviour management
Ability to follow policies including behaviour management and rewards
Flexibility in approach to classroom delivery and learning material
Willingness to embrace new technologies in the classroom
