Secondary school cover supervisors

Southport, Merseyside

When secondary schools opened in September 2020, Tradewind were inundated with requests for secondary school cover supervisors to work in our Southport schools.

Once schools in Southport re-open on 8th March, work is expected to be readily available again on a daily basis and you could work in 5 different schools in one week. The role of a cover supervisor could provide you with the flexibility you desire, the experience required to be accepted on a teacher training course or provide you with an insight into whether a career as a teacher would be for you.

The role of a cover supervisor will see the successful candidate assigned to a school on either a daily, short or long-term basis. We receive requests from our Southport secondary schools from 7am in a morning so a degree of flexibility is required (advanced bookings are also available). When arriving at school you will need to familiarise yourself with school policies, including behaviour and safeguarding and take guidance from the school cover manager. There is a high level of autonomy in the position and even though you may have support from a Teaching Assistant, you will be responsible for the class of children.

You will be required to oversee the completion of set work by the subject teacher and manage childrens behaviour, ensuring work is completed. You won't be a specialist in any particular subject however we will always make our client schools aware of your interests so if possible, they could place you in appropriate classes.

To join us and be considered for this cover supervisor role you:
* Will ideally hold a degree;
* Have experience working with children across the 11-16 age range (voluntary experience is acceptable);
* This position is subject to Enhanced DBS, Overseas police check (if applicable) and satisfactory references;
* Your CV must cover the last 10 years of employment history where possible and any gaps in employment must be explained;
* Have the legal right to work in the UK.

The role of a secondary school cover supervisor could also benefit someone who has military experience, experience of youth work / counselling or have experience working in the public sector for example: the police, fire or ambulance service.
