18h ago

Cover supervisors were introduced as a way of maintaining teachers' non contact periods. They have now become a permanent role in the majority of secondary schools, covering an absent teacher for reasons that include sickness, timetabled non contact time and time off for courses.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but it is also 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.

Role and Responsibilities

As a cover supervisor your role and responsibilities will include :

covering lessons in the absence of the timetabled teacher

supervising the delivery of the cover work by effectively communicating the work set to students

ensuring that the required resources needed in order to effectively deliver the covered lessons are available

managing the behaviour of pupils whilst they are undertaking set work to ensure a positive learning environment

responding to any questions from pupils about process and procedures

dealing with any immediate problems or emergencies in accordance with school policy and procedures

collecting completed work after lesson and returning it to the appropriate teacher

reporting back as appropriate, using the school's standard procedures on the behaviour of pupils during the class, and any issues arising.

What's on offer :

Local work and regular schools

Working with a diverse number of students

No planning or marking

Be the head of the class, great if you are thinking about becoming a teacher

Flexibility, work when YOU want to work!

How would it be to work as a Cover Supervisor :

Cover supervisors on the teaching forums say Every day is different. I also work with behaviour when I'm not covering so it's always a busy, diverse day for me.

A CS is respected in my school and teachers need those people that can step in when they are away.
