Graduate Cover Supervisor: Stoke-on-Trent

Academics are currently looking to recruit enthusiastic Graduate Cover Supervisors ready now for the new academic year!

What is a Cover Supervisor?

Cover Supervisors are used in secondary schools to provide cover for a class when a teacher is not available. They are employed on a flexible and day-to-day basis to ensure that a teacher can have time away from the classroom to carry out other duties (planning, assessment, or training days). They may also cover lessons for teachers who are away from school due to sickness or for other absences. An Cover Supervisor is not responsible for planning, teaching, or assessing a lesson. The class teacher will set work for students to complete and the Cover Supervisor will ensure that pupils remain on task by managing behaviours.
