Job description

Sports Coaches

Teaching Personnel are working in close partnership with several schools across Wigan to source the support of people with a sports coaching background to work as Cover Supervisors on a flexible basis. This is in both PE lessons and across other subject areas.


  • Regular, on-going work that is flexible around your current commitments! (if you are coaching in the evening etc).
  • The opportunity to utilise your skillset and being able to engage with young people in a formal educational setting.
  • To use your sports coaching experience to make an impact within both practical and theoretical lessons.
  • To broaden your experiences by covering in other subject areas by delivering pre-set work and making sure the pupils are on task in lessons.

The role of a Cover Supervisor within a secondary school is a varied one which involves both leading full classes and supporting in others. When you are leading full classes, your primary duty is to deliver pre-set work and make sure that the pupils remain on task through effective behaviour management e.g. overcoming any barriers or apathy to learning through being able to build rapport with pupils effectively.

Being a Cover Supervisor is very rewarding job role where you will have a great introduction to a number of schools in the area, leaving you in good stead for future positions that may arise. It is also the perfect preparation for any aspiring teachers as the experience gained can be used to support a PGCE application.
