Job Published: about 1 month ago
We are looking to supply a school in the Wolverhampton area with a Cover Supervisor. This is a full time role to cover a position for long term sickness.

Many schools like to use the same supply teachers due to continuity for the children and knowing the quality of learning they are receiving. As a result, if you make a good impression and show the school what you're made of, they will constantly be asking for you back.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but it is also very 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.

Cover supervisors are often highly qualified. Many schools specify a degree as a minimum educational requirement and require recent relevant experience working with secondary aged pupils in an educational setting. Cover supervisor jobs offer a fantastic opportunity for individuals looking to gain teaching and classroom experience before completing a PGCE.

Skills, Interests and Qualities

As a cover supervisor you will need to be:

· highly adaptable as there is no regular timetable

· be confident, organised and at times, diplomatic

· patient, flexible, creative with a good sense of humour

All our staff who register with us must hold a valid enhanced disclosure. We can cross-check a current one through the DBS update service or you must apply for a new one. We can help with that. All of the new staff are interviewed by a FFE consultant.

All supply teachers must have:

· Enhanced DBS

· Two references

· Qualification checks

· Entitlement to work checks

· Proof of ID
