Cover Supervisors

Job Description:

Are you a looking for a new role in education?

Are you a teaching assistant, sports coach, or playworker looking to take a step into the classroom of students in secondary school?

PK Education want to hear from you!

We’re looking for several Cover Supervisors to join our team and work in a variety of different schools throughout Doncaster.

The demand for Cover Supervisors has risen, therefore if you think you’ve got what it takes – apply now!

As a Cover Supervisor, your duties will be:

  • Deliver pre-planned work in the absence of the teacher
  • Ensure students are progressing with their task
  • Monitor the behaviour of the classroom in line with the guidelines of the school

You must be able to build strong rapport with both students and staff, as well as being flexible and committed to your assignments. We need people that are confident, and have experience working with children in the past. Strong behaviour management is also desired but not essential.

It may be that you work in different schools on different days, building up your experience and confidence. The students will always be KS3 and KS4, however they could be a range of abilities and we need someone that can adapt to this. The daily rate for a Cover supervisor starting out would be £65.00 for the day. Once we have received feedback from the schools, the rate will go up.

The great thing about Cover Supervisor work is that it can fit around you, and it’s completely flexible. You have no planning or marking to do at the end of the day, the role will simply start and end in the classroom.

Qualifications/Requirements etc:

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent
  • Have excellent time management
  • Own car is desirable but not essential (up to 30 minutes travel time)
  • Strong Maths & English
  • Commitment
  • Enhanced DBS on the update service
  • Ability to provide x2 references covering at least the last year.

PK Education work closely with a number of schools throughout South Yorkshire, and these schools put their trust in us to find them the best candidates for their school. It might be that you end up fitting perfectly at a school and so you get taken on full time.
