Cover Supervisor

East Riding of Yorkshire

Tradewind are working with a simply wonderful partnership school in Pocklington, who are looking for a practitioner who can work as a cover supervisor/teaching assistant on a flexible basis. This will be required for the reopening of the schools; at present we are anticipating from March 8th , for at least 2 days per week, but possibly up to 5 days per week. Payment for this position will be between £65.00 and £75.00 per day, based on experience and qualifications. Once the role has started, it will last on a temporary basis until the end of the academic year.

You will be working across the school, providing pre-planned cover for students in a range of different classes, across a range of different subjects. For this reason, a particular 'subject specialism' is not needed (although it is welcomed), but the successful candidate will need to be versatile, and able to adapt to different situations based on the needs of the class and the subject in hand. This is a school who pride themselves in their outstanding teaching and learning, and the cover lessons provided are always to a high standard. Behaviour in the school is good, however a confident practitioner with strong behaviour management is needed for this role, due to the nature of the role. The school also has a number of teaching assistants who are absent/due to be absent, so the successful candidate may find themselves helping in a teaching assistant capacity alongside their cover supervisor role.

The school itself caters for students aged 11-18, so you may find yourself covering some 6th form lessons, alongside your more traditional 'cover supervisor role'. There is a free onsite car park for those who do drive, and the school is not too far from a bus station for those who rely on public transport..

The role:

  • Covering pre-prepared lessons across a variety of different subjects
  • Administering class tests
  • Working across the school to ensure quality cover is provided
  • Assisting the class teacher in a teaching assistant capacity

This is an excellent opportunity for a recent graduate who is looking for experience in a school, before potentially completing teacher training. This is also an excellent opportunity for newly qualified graduates, who are looking for a long term school placement, before getting their first permanent job. Experienced teaching assistants looking to make a step up would also be excellent for this position.

Essential requirements:
Experience working in a secondary school

All work with Tradewind requires a DBS on the update service, and collection of at least two verified references.
