Gainsborough, UK

26 Jun 2019
Contract Type
Full Time
Tradewind Recruitment are working with a large school in Gainsborough who require cover for absent members of staff on an almost daily basis. Due to the nature of the school day, the academy often needs as many as 5 teachers/cover supervisors per day, so we are confident in offering regular work for our supply teachers/cover supervisors. We are searching for a confident practitioner who is free for flexible work, and someone who can work on a pre-booked or last minute basis. As the academy is looking for continuity, they are looking for somebody who is ready to work and be the first port of call for the school. We would welcome applications for people who are free full time, or those who only have limited availability and are looking for work on their days off. This could be an excellent first step before a PGCE programme, or for students with a particular subject specialism.

We are absolutely delighted to now be working on a first call basis with this academy, and welcome excellent practitioners to work with us.

Payment for this position is between £60 and £130 per day depending on experience. Due to the demand at the academy, and local academies in the local area, we are willing to offer a guaranteed pay contract to practitioners who work exceedingly well and enjoy going to the academy. More information on what the guaranteed pay contract looks like can be obtained by calling in for a conversation.

The academy is in an excellent new building, and the wonderful site has added to an increase in student behaviour. Lessons at the school are an hour and fifteen minutes long, and there are only four each day. The academy has a truly outstanding cover manager who ensures that all staff members coming in are fully confident with the practices of the school. Information is provided on: the school day, your classes, your rooms, the safeguarding officer and the SLT member in charge of behaviour. With clear behaviour management policies, and a clear ethos/vision for the school, it is an academy that is ever improving, and is truly an excellent place to work.

If you are any of the following, this could be an excellent position for you to apply for:
* An experienced cover supervisor
* A recent graduate seeking classroom experience
* A teaching assistant looking to take a new step
* A sports coach

The school is most easily accessed via car, and there is a large on site car park for any staff member that is free to park in. It is, however accessible via public transport for those that do not drive.
