Job Description

Are you a fluent Welsh speaker? Do you have experience working with children or managing/supervising a group of people? Would you like to transfer those skills into an education setting? If so, we would love to hear from you, as we have opportunities to work as Cover Supervisors in various Welsh medium secondary schools across the following areas:

  • Neath Port Talbot
  • Swansea
  • Llanelli and Carmarthenshire
  • Pembrokeshire

You will need to have the confidence to stand in front of a secondary classroom to maintain classroom behaviour, and ensure the pupils stay on task following the work set by the class teacher. There is no teaching involved with this position, the main responsibility of this role is the management of the classroom. Therefore, experience working with children or supervising groups of people along with good communication skills is essential.

There are various day-to-day, part time and full time roles available, with an immediate start.

Working as a Cover Supervisor can be a very rewarding but very demanding role. 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.

  • Have a good understanding of the Welsh Language
  • Develop curricular knowledge in line with the school requirements
  • Apply the school’s behaviour management policy and report any difficulties to the class Teacher/senior leadership team
  • Set homework in line with the classroom Teacher requirements
  • Provide homework under the guidance of the class Teacher

  • Supervise the work of the Teaching Assistant, providing support if required
  • Abide by and work towards all policies within the school, eg – behaviour management, health and safety, equal opportunities
  • Carry out pre-prepared exercises in the short term absence of the class Teacher
  • Ensure students remain on task through classroom management
  • You will not be required to plan lessons, but will have the opportunity to lead the class
