Job Description

Do you have managerial experience or have lead a team as a Team Leader or Supervisor?

If so, you may have the transferrable skills needed to excel as a Cover Supervisor in Secondary schools in Swansea.

We are looking for enthusiastic Cover Supervisors who are engaging, confident and professional to deliver course content provided by the teacher to both key stage 3 and 4 pupils.

You will be assertive with the students but approachable to discuss any queries they may have with their work. You will need to be encouraging to keep students on task and be willing to problem solve queries through class interaction.

The Comprehensive school have a supportive staff network who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and there is ample parking facilities at the school.

Becoming a Cover Supervisor in a school setting is a great way to find out if a career in education is the right path for you and could even spur you on to study a PGCE at a later date.

The Cover Supervisor role offers you flexible working and an opportunity to see the facilities schools have to offer without committing to a permanent role.
