Graduate Cover Supervisor

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Are you a graduate who is looking to pursue a PGCE next September?

Are you looking for further experience working within a secondary school where you can lead lessons?

Our client secondary school in the South Manchester area is looking for a strong, confident graduate to join them in January to work as a cover supervisor on a long term, full time basis. This school are looking for a graduate who can exercise good behaviour management skills within the classroom and ensure students stay on task.

The successful cover supervisor should therefore be motivated and flexible to work across departments and have a real passion for working with young adults at secondary school age.

Key highlights of the Cover Supervisor role:

  • Full time, long term opportunity to work within a secondary school environment
  • Gain the ideal experience to set you up ready for a future in teaching and to support a PGCE application
  • Network within a secondary school that is a key part of the local community and has links with other local secondary schools and feeder primary schools

The role of a cover supervisor is to deliver already set work to students within a classroom setting. The successful cover supervisor won't be expected to plan and mark within this role but will work across departments as the school require. There is also the possible opportunity to tutor students in small groups or on a 1:1 basis, further gaining invaluable experience of educating students within the school environment.

The school is located in the Wythenshawe area of South Manchester, close to the airport so very easily accessible via the M56/M60 ring road. For those on public transport, again the school is easily accessible via the tram link which runs from Manchester city centre into Altrincham/Sale as the school is close to these areas. The school is also accessible from Stockport and Didsbury/Withington as local buses run regularly.

Further highlights of the cover supervisory position:

  • Access the school easily from Stockport, Sale, Stretford or Didsbury with local public transport servicing the school regularly
  • Lead lessons in the absence of a classroom teacher and get a real feel for what it is like being an educator

This is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate who is an aspirational teacher of the future as there is no better experience to get you ready for a role in education. The successful candidate should be available in January to attend a meeting with the school where they can assess your suitability.
