Job description
Secondary COVER SUPERVISOR required for Schools in WESTMINSTER

The cover supervisor's main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set. Curiously, cover supervisors are often defined by what they don't do and this is in response to teachers defending their QTS roles. So officially, cover supervisors:
• Don't plan
• Don't have the subject knowledge
• Don't mark work
• Don't set homework
• Don't differentiate
• Don't set targets
However, in the TES Forums many cover supervisors report undertaking the following duties:
• Teaching grammar
• Managing behaviour
• Discussing and debating texts with pupils and answering questions
• Differentiating and allocating extension exercises.
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.
