Graduates - paid teaching experience

Job description

Recent graduate facing unemployment?

Thinking of training to teach?

Looking to gain paid classroom experience?

Many of our client schools in the Portsmouth and Waterlooville area are looking for graduates to provide essential cover the the absence of their usual teachers. This role - a Cover Supervisor - is an excellent way to gain invaluable experience within schools to aid your teaching applications, or to temporarily provide you with employment whilst you search elsewhere.

In simple terms, a cover supervisor is employed to supervise the cover work that has been set, therefore will manage class behaviour, answer questions when you can, keep the classes on track with their tasks, collect all the work completed through the day and report back to the cover manager.

This may sound like a fairly simple role, but gaining classroom experience beforehand is essential. To experience different schools, how they manage their behaviour, the systems and policies for each school and to have a general knowledge of how a school is run, will make the transition into teaching that much easier.

Being a cover supervisor will give you an insight in to what schools are really like, the challenges faced by teachers and staff on a daily basis, the type of character it takes to work with young people and whether this is something you want to commit to.

You can look to gain work for 1,2,3,4 or 5 days a week depending on your availability. You have the option to pick the days in which you are willing to work in our schools and can choose the schools in which you wish to work. We can be flexible to suit your needs on a week by week basis.
