Although not actively teaching, it is important for a Cover Supervisor to have the skills and confidence needed to keep the class motivated and focused so they can work on the activities set and prepared for them. The role requires you to support pupils as they work through the lesson and to understand how to help them to complete tasks, where needed.

This role is often used as the first step towards teaching for many and it gives you a good insight into what teaching will be like and is often used by new graduates as the start of their career in education.

  • Supervising pupils, ensuring they are engaged in the classwork.
  • Encouraging pupils to interact.
  • Helping pupils to become more independent in their learning.
  • Establishing trust with pupils, interacting with them according to individual needs.
