Job Description

New Directions are currently looking to recruit Cover Supervisors to work within Secondary schools situated throughout the Wrexham area on a supply basis.

As the preferred supplier within the Wrexham area, we would be able to provide a wide variety of placements in Welsh Medium Secondary schools.

As a Cover Supervisor, you would need to provide general cover for a variety of classes covering day to day sickness and courses. We are looking for individuals who can deliver the planned work which has been provided by the Teacher to ensure that all pupils are working to the best of their ability.

This role would be ideal for any aspiring Teachers who are looking to gain experiences and all though a qualification within the educational field would be beneficial, it is not essential. However previous experience of working with children in any environment is needed.

Job Specification

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.

As a cover supervisor you will be expected to:

  • 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
  • Carry out the above duties in accordance with the Children’s Services Department’s Equal Opportunities Policy

What New Directions Education offers:

  • A dedicated and expert account manager
  • Regular and varied supply work
  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Potential long-term roles
  • Full compliance with the Agency Workers Regulation (AWR)
  • A network of branches across the UK
  • Preferred supplier to 20 boroughs across the UK
  • Recommend-a-friend scheme
  • Respected reputation across the education and recruitment industry

We are fully committed to the protection of children and vulnerable adults. All applicants must undertake a full enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check.
