Full Time

Randstad Education Cardiff are currently recruiting for a vibrant cover supervisor for our fantastic secondary school in South Wales.

Our mission is to shape the world of education by raising standards and contributing to the safe learning environment through the recruitment of qualified professionals. It's a duty that we take very seriously and we are proud that, together with our teachers ,we support over 85,000 children every day, helping to influence a better educational future for generations to come.

The successful candidate must be available to start as soon as possible to provide educational support within Wales's largest Welsh Medium secondary school. Our school has a well established SEN department along with many extra curricular activities available to students aged 11-16. The school clearly recognises that education is not confined to success in external examinations only but is also about spiritual, moral, personal, social, physical and cultural development.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but also very demanding. There is a high level of responsibility, however, there is always a teacher close at hand if needed. Schools may wish to employ staff for cover supervision but on occasions where they are not needed for cover, they might also be released to provide additional support to teachers in classrooms, or to carry out administrative tasks for example.

The role of a Cover Supervisor includes:
?Undertaking whole class supervision in the absence of the class teacher, setting work previously prepared by the teacher
?Developing curricular knowledge as required by the school
?Applying the school?s behaviour management policy and report any difficulties to the class teacher/head teacher
?Setting homework previously prepared by the teacher
?Marking elements of class work and homework under the guidance of the class teacher
?Undertaking observations of the pupils and contribute to pupil records
?Administering (and marking) class tests
?Supervising the work of the Teaching Assistant
?Abiding by and work towards all the policies within the school e.g. behaviour management, Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities
?Carrying out the above duties in accordance with the Children?s Services Department?s Equal Opportunities Policy.

We are fully committed to the protection of children. All applicants must undertake a full Enhanced DBS.
