Cover supervisor

Posted 14 September by CER Education Recruitment

Are you looking for experience to gain a place on a Teacher Training course?

Have you finished your University studies and you are looking for a route into the Education System?

Are you an experienced Cover Supervisor who is looking for their next challenge?

I am currently working with a school in the borough of Islington very close to Highbury and Islington Tube station. The school is searching for committed and professional people to take up the role of Cover Supervisor. In the role, you are required to deliver set lessons in the absence of a class teacher on a short-term basis. This role involves a lot of autonomy and a calm approach benefits both staff and pupils. When no cover is required, Teaching Assistant support may be needed in or outside of classes. You may be utilised on a short-term, long-term or permanent basis.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in an educational setting and many Cover Supervisors go on to be very successful teachers. Cover Supervisors are encouraged to immerse themselves in all aspects of school life including extra-curricular activities.

You will ideally have experience in a school setting, be on course to complete a degree or have an educational qualification. Although, experience is not essential as you will be provided with expert training to develop behaviour management strategies.

In return, you will receive excellent rates of pay, weekly payments and support during challenging moments.

You will be paid in line with the Main Pay Scale for Outer London as a Cover supervisor. In addition to this, if you are eligible for a Whole School TLR, these are also available.

The school was graded as good in its most recent report. In order to gain Outstanding the Leaders know that they need to continue with raise current work as they also received praise, with the school's curriculum and the positive relationships between staff, pupils and parents. They maintain a safe and secure environment for all staff. Even as a Supply Teacher (with a yearlong contract) you will be welcomed into the school family.

CER helps secondary schools and academies across England to employ teaching and support staff who share their ambitions. If you are looking for a new job in a secondary school, we want to hear from you. Apply today.
