Job Description

New Directions Education are now accepting CV’s and applications for the post of cover supervisor. We have supplied cover supervisors across the whole of Cheshire West, Chester and the Wirral and are now looking to recruit and replenish our team for this busy summer term and September.

We take the role of cover supervisor seriously and take our time to ensure we carefully match our teachers, cover supervisors and teaching assistants with schools that complement their skills and experience.

For those considering a career in teaching, this is an excellent opportunity to gain real-life, practical classroom experience; enhancing your chances of securing a PGCE placement.

What will I have to do?

Our Cheshire West, Chester and Wirral secondary schools require cover supervisors to help step in and cover classes in the absence of the class teacher across key stages three, four and five. Due to the nature of the work, it is important you can engage students, have a sense of humour as well as a strong classroom presence, with excellent classroom and strong behaviour management skills.

Due to the short notice some schools provide, you must be adaptable and flexible to their needs and requirements, but there is the added benefit of not having to plan work as this will have already been set in the absence of the teacher but a good level of education and transferable skills are desirable.

What qualifications or experience do I need?

This position of cover supervisor would suit someone who enjoys varying challenges across a wide range of settings and from varying demographic areas. The position would suit the following:

  • graduates considering a career within education (with prior experience of working with children)
  • retired teachers
  • sports coaches
  • members of the emergency services i.e. police, fire and ambulance
  • care support staff
  • youth workers and the probation service
  • teaching assistants.
