You can work in secondary schools as a cover supervisor, taking the place of the usual class teacher in their absence and gain vital experience to help enhance your skills in this role. Secondary schools are willing to utilise unqualified Teachers providing you have relevant/transferable skills and experience, or recently graduated and show commitment to becoming a teacher.

The role does not require any active teaching, marking or planning. Depending on which school you are working in, duties may include:

  • supervising work that has been set in accordance with the school policy
  • managing the behaviour of pupils while they are undertaking this work to ensure a constructive environment
  • responding to any questions from pupils about process and procedures
  • dealing with any immediate problems or emergencies according to the school's policies and procedures
  • collecting any completed work after the lesson and returning it to the appropriate teacher
  • reporting back as appropriate using the school's agreed referral procedures on the behaviour of pupils during the class, and any issues arising

The opportunity exists to work on adhoc basis on the days that you are available. You may find that you build an excellent working relationship with a few select schools, or perhaps enjoy working in a different school each day. There is also scope for you to become a permanent fixture within a school should you continue to provide an excellent service and wish to commit to the school.
