Job description
We are looking to supply a school in the Shrewsbury 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

You will need to demonstrate that you have:

· experience of working with secondary aged children

· the ability to manage groups of children and cope with challenging behaviour.

· the ability to build good relationships with children, teachers, parents and carers

· a knowledge of the National Curriculum for KS3 and KS4

· the ability to work as part of a team

· good reading, writing and numeracy skills

· good IT skills

· A passion for educating young children

· Eagerness to grow and develop as a teacher

Cover Supervisor Job Shrewsbury


Benefits in return, you will receive:

· A competitive salary

· The opportunity to work with a family-run agency who value each candidate as an individual
