Job Description

New Directions are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic and flexible person on behalf of an excellent Secondary school in the Ellesmere Port area.  As a Cover Supervisor you will work across the school covering the lessons of teachers when they are absent. The expectations for cover work across the school are both high and consistent, ensuring that you will always have the support from teaching staff to do the very best job you can. The position is for a fixed term until the end of the academic year.

Not only is this a great opportunity to work to a schedule that suits you but it’s also the perfect way to gain experience in a secondary setting and/or take the next step towards becoming a secondary school Teacher. The role would suit graduates wishing to gain experience in order to enter a career in teaching or who would like to further their career working with young people. Applications from NQTs or teachers with QTS are also welcome. In return you will receive excellent training and support. The post is for 30 hours per week (8.30am-3.00pm).
