Job description
Do you have a sports background and the ambition to be a teacher? Have you considered a cover supervisor role as a good springboard?

If you have experience working with secondary age children in a sports environment and you want to take that experience into a secondary school then a cover supervisor role may be the right job for you! You could be a youth worker, a sports coach or a sports graduate but you must have the desire and ambition to work with secondary age students in a classroom based setting.

I am currently working with a federation of 36 schools in the area and supporting their PPA cover. The schools are in the Maidstone and Tonbridge areas and I need to recruit a number of personnel. Applicants will be offered daily, short term and long-term cover work. Work will be a mix of classroom based cover and PE / Sports cover.

A cover supervisor is a classroom based role supporting a qualified teacher or covering for a qualified teacher in their absence. You will not need any subject specialism although if you have it will be a benefit, a sports background would be ideal. You will offer support across all areas of the curriculum and with age groups from year 7 to year 13. You will deliver pre-planned lesson material and supervise behaviour during class whilst ensuring that a safe and inclusive learning environment is maintained. You will not be expected to plan, prepare, mark or assess work. For those candidates with a passion for sports and working with children but without the qualifications this can be an ideal role.

In order to succeed in this role you will be able to demonstrate:

Ability to work with groups of students of secondary age
Strong behaviour management
Ability to follow policies including behaviour management and rewards
Flexibility in approach to classroom delivery and learning material
Willingness to embrace new technologies in the classroom
A proven tack record in a sports background.
