Job description
Cover supervisors were introduced as a way of maintaining teachers' non contact periods. They have now become a permanent role in the majority of secondary schools, covering an absent teacher for reasons that include sickness, timetabled non contact time and time off for courses.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but it is also demanding. The cover supervisor's main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set by an absent teacher.

Role and Responsibilities
As a cover supervisor your role and responsibilities will include:
-covering lessons in the absence of the timetabled teacher
-supervising the delivery of the cover work by effectively communicating the work set to students
-ensuring that the required resources needed in order to effectively deliver the covered lessons are available
-managing the behaviour of pupils whilst they are undertaking set work to ensure a positive learning environment
-responding to any questions from pupils about process and procedures
-dealing with any immediate problems or emergencies in accordance with school policy and procedures
-collecting completed work after lesson and returning it to the appropriate teacher
-reporting back as appropriate, using the school's standard procedures on the behaviour of pupils during the class, and any issues arising.

What's on offer:
-Local work and regular schools
-Working with a diverse number of students
-No planning or marking
-Be the head of the class, great if you are thinking about becoming a teacher
-Flexibility, work when YOU want to work!

How would it be to work as a Cover Supervisor:
Cover supervisors on the teaching forums say Every day is different. I also work with behaviour when I'm not covering so it's always a busy, diverse day for me. A CS is respected in my school and teachers need those people that can step in when they are away.
