Cover Manager role is to plan, communicate and implement daily cover for staff absence. Where necessary to liaise with external agencies to provide effective short-term cover for teacher absence. The Cover Manager will also cover lessons for absent colleagues which will include leading the lesson which has been set by the class teacher/department. The classroom based part of the role will be to give instruction and to ensure an appropriate climate for learning. You will be required to respond to pupils' requirements in the lesson and ensure adherence to academy policies for upholding the highest expectations and support for students to succeed, under the professional direction of teachers.

This role would be ideal for candidates wishing to gain valuable classroom experience; possibly as a precursor to teacher training or studying for a classroom support qualification. But would equally suit individuals who believe in the power of education to change lives and communities, and wish to contribute to the lives of young people.

This mixed secondary school is part of a small-trust and will move into a brand-new building later this year. The school's key priority and focus is to remove barriers to learning in order to secure good and better progress and outcomes for all students. The leadership team has set clearly defined priorities to ensure that this happens. Teachers have high expectations for pupil conduct and well-developed systems and policies are in place. These focus on promoting positive behaviour and a culture of mutual respect.

Staff at the school enjoy excellent support, creative and high impact weekly professional development opportunities, as well as a two week October half term. For staff joining the profession, they boast excellent training and induction support, as well as a commitment to ensuring development opportunities via their network and relationships with other schools. You will have access to on-going development opportunities and the support of a forward thinking, successful multi-academy trust.
