Job/Person Summary

The role of cover supervisor at John Hanson primarily involves the high-quality supervision of lessons using materials planned by a teacher.  It is expected that the individual is able to maintain high expectations of work and levels of behaviour within lessons, whilst using these materials accurately to engage students in their learning.

The role will involve being able to respond to students’ general queries and ensuring that students remain on task throughout.  Objective and accurate feedback should be provided for the class teacher. 

Promoting positive values, attitudes and student behaviour using the established policies of the school are integral parts of the role. The role is demanding yet hugely rewarding.

The successful candidate must be educated to at least GCSE level (or equivalent) and have proven literacy and numeracy skills, having achieved Grade C, or above, in Maths and English.  Strong IT skills would also be advantageous.  The ideal candidate must also be able to demonstrate resilience, resourcefulness, initiative, good time management, and patience.

The role provides an excellent opportunity to gain classroom experience prior to applying for other school roles including school based teacher training.

Full time and part-time hours will be considered and we may be able to offer some teaching in addition to the Cover Supervisor role for applicants with suitable qualifications. We have various hours available for the right candidate working a minimum of 3 fixed days per week between 08:15 and 15:15. Days of the week worked are negotiable. Please indicate any desired working pattern in your application.
