Cover Supervisor



We are currently working with a number of Secondary schools in Wakefield, who are looking for Cover Supervisors for day to day cover. This is an excellent opportunity for teachers to expand their experience working in different settings, to hone classroom and behaviour management skills, and due to the high demand, obtain a steady income.

Your new role:

You will be going into schools in Wakefield as a Cover Supervisor, potentially at short notice, to provide cover across a wide range of school subjects.

You will be delivering pre-planned lessons to students in key stages 3 and 4.

As the lessons are pre-planned, you will not need to have the same subject specialism as the lessons you will be covering.

What you’ll need to succeed:

 You will need to be a resilient and versatile Cover Supervisor, able to turn your hand to any subject that might be timetabled on any given day.

You will also need to have strong behaviour management, as there may be some challenging classes during your placement(s).

You will need experience of leading with groups of people of 10 or more within the last two years – aged under 18, ideally degree educated but not essential.

What you’ll get in return:

In addition to the competitive weekly pay, you will have the opportunity to work across a range of schools, and be working with experienced practitioners, as well as talented young minds.

Additionally, the teaching experience will be a great boost to anyone who is looking to qualify as a secondary teacher.

If you are interested in developing your education experience and think this could be the role for you, please submit your CV to jenna.hall@akteaching.co.uk
