Job description
Sports Coaches, Actors and Graduates wanted –

If you come from a Sports/ Drama background or are educated to degree level, have you ever thought about pursuing a career in teaching?

At Protocol we’ve found that people from these backgrounds flourish in Schools because they’re generally confident, outgoing and are willing to get stuck in and build positive relationships with young people.

In the UK there is currently a teacher shortage, that’s why most schools and academies now have a high demand for unqualified teachers, called ‘Cover Supervisors’ to go in to a classroom and perform the same duties that a qualified teacher would- ensuring that all work set is delivered in a confident and intriguing manner, and that all work set is completed by all pupils.

Sports Coaches are also great for acting as positive role models with teenage pupils that may come from a disadvantaged background or have behavioural issues that need to have someone build rapport and re-engage them back into Education.

A Cover Supervisor is usually a graduate that covers pre-planned lessons in Secondary School classrooms

This job would suit:

A graduate, Actor or Sports Coach looking to gain some more classroom based experience within secondary schools.

Degree students looking to build upon your experience in preparation to pursue a teacher training programme

An experienced Cover Supervisor or teaching assistant looking to broaden your experience with the areas leading education specialist agency

A youth worker or sports coach with experience supporting young people and would like to extend this into a classroom environment

What’s in it for you?

• Flexible work both part time and full time

• Competitive daily pay rates

• Guaranteed work schemes

• Regular work within local secondary schools

• Free of charge training courses (SEN, Cover Supervisor, behaviour management)

• Dedicated consultants committed to supporting your career ventures

How to apply:

Register with us and attach an Updated CV

• Informal Telephone interview based on your CV. This is the initial ‘vetting stage’

• Booked in for an appointment with your area consultant, discuss rate of pay and what you’re looking for

• Take you through the clearing process. Please note because that when candidates are working in a school everyone must have a valid DBS on the Update Service and provide ID and proof of address documents for safeguarding purposes

Please note: If you do not have a DBS, we still value and accept your application and will aid you through your application. A DBS costs £44 and the annual Update service costs £13.

Protocol Education offers all Teachers and teaching staff:

• Excellent rates of pay

• Professional support from our team of experienced consultants

• A wide variety of positions, both day to day and long-term

• Continued support through placements

• 24 Hr Emergency contact numbers

• Weekly Pay

• The opportunity to work in a variety of settings

• CPD

We look forward to your response. Please contact Jed Downing 01162 851 615 / jdowning@protocol-education.com

Please note: We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
