Unqualified Teacher or Cover Supervisor required to cover pre set KS3 and GCSE lessons when planned and unplanned absences arise within the school, ensuring all safeguarding and behaviour policies are followed.

  • Full or part time hours available, allowing you to work on a flexible basis around your current schedule, dependent on days that the school needs additional cover in the form of a Cover Supervisor or Unqualified Teacher
  • Paid a competitive wage, dependent on your experience as a Cover Supervisor or Unqualified Teacher, as well as your responsibilities in the role (up to GBP70 for day to day work, with long term rates being negotiable dependent on responsibilities)

Working as a Cover Supervisor or Unqualified Teacher is a very rewarding yet sometimes challenging role where you will be required to cover pre set lesson plans that have been left by the regular class teacher. You must be able to act on your feet and have excellent communication skills so that you can deliver work effectively to the pupils, whilst assisting pupils with any queries or issues they may have, whether these are learning, behaviour, SEN or SEMH related.

Previous experience as a Cover Supervisor or Unqualified Teacher would be a bonus, however no previous experience is still necessarily as long as you have a passion for education and working with young people and are confident in your ability to control a classroom and ensure all safeguarding and behaviour policies are followed.

This would be an excellent opportunity for any recent graduates who are seeking experience in a secondary school setting and would like to gain classroom based skills as a Cover Supervisor or Unqualified Teacher before enrolling on their PGCE or similar Teacher Training Programme. We would also like to hear from you if you have similar transferable experience in which you have supported young people, such as those who have worked as a Teaching Assistant or who have run Youth Clubs/ worked in Youth Work.
