Are you an aspiring teacher in the County Durham area looking to gain experience in the classroom? Perhaps you are a confident graduate or are looking for a new career that involves working with young people? If so, AK Teaching would love to hear from you.

AK Teaching have established strong working relationships with many secondary schools in the Durham area and as such the daily demand for Cover Supervisors has grown significantly.


County Durham schools use Cover Supervisors on a daily basis, as a way of covering teacher absences. As a Cover Supervisor you would be responsible for the delivery of pre-prepared lessons, the management of the behaviour in the classroom and the safety of the students in your care.

Working as a Cover Supervisor with AK Teaching could give you the opportunity to sample working in several Country Durham schools and will not only allow you to gain invaluable experience in a school setting, but also build the classroom management and networking links to help you begin the next step of your career.

We need quality candidates to meet this need and in return offer a flexible method of working that would fit in with other commitments such as University or additional work obligations.

You will also benefit from a range of free CPD opportunities to enhance your CV and skillset.


The ideal Cover Supervisor is a confident and outgoing individual who is happy to build positive working relationships with young learners and has a genuine interest in their academic success.

Previous successful County Durham-based Cover Supervisors have been graduates, sports coaches and those with a military or public service background or email chris.mahon@akteaching.co.uk.

You will have or be willing to apply for a DBS on the updates service and full assistance can be provided to achieve this if necessary.

Due to the location of some of our schools, a driving licence would be an advantage, but not strictly necessary.

If this sounds like the perfect opportunity to gain experience and a flexible income, you can apply by responding to this advert or if you need further information about the role, feel free to call Chris on 0191 516 6327.
