Cover Supervisors / Higher Teaching Assistants / Graduates

Job Description:

Due to an increase in demand for Cover Supervisors, PK Education are looking to recruit a number of Cover Supervisors to join us and work in various schools on a short term, long term and day to day basis.

We want to hear from people with experience of working in a school, as well as people that have been sports coaches or trainers, people who have experience working with children in different settings, and University graduates.

As a cover supervisor, your role will be to go into schools and cover the lesson in the absence of the teacher. There is no planning or marking involved as you’re delivering pre-planned work to the class. You must have good behaviour management as you’ll be monitoring the behaviour of the classroom and ensuring the students are on task.

Cover Supervisor work is flexible, so it can fit around your timetable whether you have a part-time job or you’re studying.

The successful candidate will cover lessons of any subject and set high expectations to motivate and challenge students whilst managing behaviour effectively and promoting a positive learning environment.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be flexible, motivated and committed
  • Have experience working with children ages 11-16
  • Have their own form of transport (desired but not essential)
  • Be able to build good rapport with both students and staff
  • Have the ability to motivate and keep the children on task
  • Have good classroom and behaviour management
  • Be highly organised

If you think you’d like to be a cover supervisor and work in different schools on different days, building up your classroom experience – please apply now!
