Fulfilling the position of a cover supervisor will give you the necessary experience for a future PGCE application as well as invaluable experience within a classroom setting. You will gain knowledge on how to command a classroom as well as build on your classroom and behaviour management by delivering pre-planned work in the absence of a member of teaching staff.

You will also be required to be flexible and adaptable to various situations within a secondary school; gaining the opportunity to work full days or certain periods of time throughout the school day. Cover supervisors are often prioritised for continuity with schools regularly asking for cover supervisors they have experience of.
