Are you interested in a career in Education but wondering how to make your first move? Do you think a classroom-based position would give you the skills and experience to move your career to the next level? Are you considering your PGCE and want to gain some experience in schools to support your application?

Randstad Education Preston are currently offering a free, one-day training course to help increase the number of Cover Supervisors available to work with our schools across Chorley. The course is designed to equip people with the tools and mindset needed to be a Cover Supervisor and will be conducted here in our office in Preston.

The course will cover the following topics:
* The Cover Supervisor role and responsibilities
* What a Cover Supervision day looks like
* Safeguarding children
* Special educational needs and disabilities
* Classroom management and recognising behaviour issue

Once you have attended the course, you will have basic skills and an understanding of the Cover Supervisor role. You will need to then complete a voluntary shadowing day at a local school so we can assess feedback before placing you in paid employment. This will enable you to work on a casual, ad hoc basis, covering lessons and year groups in schools as and when teachers are absent.

Following the completion of the course, you will have:
* Strong behaviour management skills and the ability to keep pupils on task, ensuring a constructive working environment
* The ability to explain, supervise and respond to any questions from pupils about work that has been set, regardless of the subject
* The ability to think on your feet, be flexible and improvise should arrangements within the classroom change at short notice, i.e. room changes, no cover work set etc.
* An awareness of how systems, policies and procedures vary from school to school and an understanding of how to work inside school guidelines when dealing with sanctions, behavioural issues, delivery of work etc.
* A strong sense of teamwork and the ability to liaise effectively with colleagues, teachers and support staff around the school to ensure the smooth running of the school day

Courses can be run through the summer, from 10am to 3pm. For more information, contact .
