Job Description

New Directions Education are currently looking to appoint a team of full time cover supervisors for secondary schools across Monmouthshire. These positions are guaranteed full time and five days a week working as general cover throughout the school covering day to day sickness and courses.

Applicants will be required to manage the class, so a good working environment can be achieved, and all pupils can work to the best of their ability. You must ensure you give the pupils the correct resources they need to effectively complete work; and you will also be required to understand and learn the school policy so that your management and control of the pupils follows the school’s guidelines. As the official preferred supplier for all secondary schools across Monmouthshire, New Directions are able to guarantee full time work from September 2020.

Successful candidates will receive:

Flexible working patterns to suit you
Pay rates from £75 per day for secondary roles
A dedicated Account Manager working on your behalf to find you work
CPD training and development opportunities

Having transport is helpful but not essential, as many of the schools we work with have good transport links.
