Cover Supervisor

Closing date: 05/10/2021 at 12:00

Contract/Hours: Permanent , Part-time

Salary Type: Support Staff

Salary Details: Grade C; £13,131 - £13,830 pa (equivalent to £18,933-£19,941 full time)

Location of Role: Priestlands School

Job/Person Summary

This post will appeal to someone who likes being with young people and helping them to learn and succeed when the usual teacher is unavailable.  It will require an innovative approach so that students can gain access to the work set, and complete it in the time allowed.  You will need to have a good sense of discipline (firm but fair) but a non-confrontational approach to the students is essential.  The school is well ordered and has a clear discipline policy, with which all students are familiar, and a strong, supportive leadership team.  Training will be provided but the post will best suit someone who is naturally comfortable in the presence of young people.  In the event of there being no cover required, the cover supervisor will be allocated alternative tasks working with students as set out in the job description.

The Cover Supervisor role also provides an ideal opportunity for a graduate who is planning a career in teaching to gain experience in a classroom environment.  It would be particularly relevant to graduates considering applying for teacher training because applicants with considerable experience in a school already are likely to have an advantage.
