New Directions is for Cover Supervisors ready around the Wirral area. Many of the Secondary Schools that we work with, like to have Cover Supervisors to support their pupils when their regular staff are on training or absent from work. We have both full time and part time work available, as well as the traditional day to day supply.
If you have the following skills or experience please
forward your CV:
Working with children and young adults in an
education, youth group or similar setting.
Part completion of a teaching qualification
including at least one teaching practice.
TEFL training and experience (may need an
Overseas Police Check if you have worked abroad in the last five years).
Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but also very demanding. Schools may wish to employ staff for cover supervision but on occasions where they are not needed for cover, they might also be released to provide additional support to teachers in classrooms, or to carry out administrative tasks.

Undertake whole class supervision in the absence of the class teacher, setting work previously prepared by the teacher
Develop curricular knowledge as required by the school
Apply the school’s behaviour management policy and report any difficulties to the class teacher/head teacher
Set homework previously prepared by the teacher
Mark elements of class work and homework under the guidance of the class teacher
Undertake observations of the pupils and contribute to pupil records
Administer (and mark) class tests
Supervise the work of the teaching assistant
Abide by and work towards all the policies within the school e.g. behaviour management, Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities
