We are looking to support a school in Hartlepool with staff to support as a Cover Supervisor. This will be day to day with the potential to lead to more long term work in the School. Many schools like to use the same supply teachers due to continuity for the children and knowing the quality of learning they are receiving. As a result, if you make a good impression and show the school what you're made of, they will constantly be asking for you back.
Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but it is also very demanding. The cover supervisor's main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set by an absent teacher.
Cover supervisors are often highly qualified. Many schools specify a degree as a minimum educational requirement and require recent relevant experience working with secondary aged pupils in an educational setting. Cover supervisor jobs offer a fantastic opportunity for individuals looking to gain teaching and classroom experience before completing a PGCE.
