Do you want to gain experience before qualifying as a Teacher?

Cover Supervisors cover short term periods of absence by the class Teacher. They play a vital role in schools and the role should not be taken lightly, but this can be a rewarding job and valuable experience in the classroom for those with teaching ambitions. The Cover Supervisor's main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set. This requires no active teaching, marking, planning etc.

Typical work includes:

  • Provide students with a positive learning environment to aid student progress
  • Managing students behaviour in accordance with school policy
  • Report performance, behaviour and achievement at the end of the lesson
