Career Teachers are currently recruiting for Cover Supervisors to work on a daily basis for both short and long term positions, starting from September 2021.

This type of position can provide a good degree of flexibility, as due to the nature of the work it could be that you are placed with several different schools across a given week, and we will only call you on the days you tell us you are free. Therefore, this position would suit someone with this type of flexibility who can work both full and part time. The demand we have in this branch means that there will be lots of different opportunities to work in different types of schools, not just as a cover supervisor but also as a teaching assistant.

In your position as a Cover Supervisor you will largely be responsible for covering classes at short notice, whilst the usual class teacher is off. Work is ordinarily pre-set, and you will be there to ensure that the students stay on track with the work. You will need to be there to manage the behaviour of the students, and also to respond to any questions about the work that the students may have.

What will you need to be successful and eligible for this type of role? Whilst experience is always an advantage to have, the good news is that it will be your soft skills that will count for more. You will need to have initiative, confidence, and possess great organisation skills. You would also need to be passionate, have plenty of enthusiasm, and be able to adapt to your surroundings quite quickly.

This post is ideal for undergraduates and graduates who want to work flexibly on their terms. This is certainly a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience whilst being paid for it on the days you are free. We tend to find that candidates with sports backgrounds also make excellent cover supervisors as they have the knack for building rapport with young people and can handle any behavioural issues with confidence.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with good experience working with children, and also graduates who are considering a career in Teaching as working as a Cover Supervisor can give you a real insight into life inside a classroom. Apply today to be part of this wonderful opportunity.

At Career Teachers we are fully compliant with Agency Worker Regulations, ensuring you receive equal treatment for pay and conditions after a 12 week qualifying period. Please ask for further details.

All quoted rates are inclusive of 12.07% holiday pay.
