Cover Supervisor

Stocksbridge High School is a 11-16 comprehensive school with 850 students on roll. They are an ambitious and inclusive school rooted firmly within the community. They are currently seeking to appoint a highly motivated and capable Cover Supervisor with well-developed interpersonal skills to:

  • Provide cover teaching for classes by delivering set work in the absence of their scheduled teacher.
  • Be able to liaise with teachers to discuss cover work set for planned absence and to provide feedback about student progress and behaviour following the covering of lessons.
  • Be able to support the use of ICT in delivering lessons and learning activities.

The role of cover supervisor is viewed as essential to the running of the school and the continuity of learning for young people. It is an ideal opportunity for anyone considering teaching as a career as it provides direct experience of the classroom, the whole school environment and directly working with young people.

The successful candidate will have a flexible approach and the confidence and presence to manage whole classes in a professional manner. Applicants should have very good literacy and numeracy skills and the ability and desire to work with young people. In return, you will join a friendly and welcoming school community prepared to develop you as a professional through training and support.

We would welcome applications from candidates who may wish to job share or work flexibly, and we are open to a discussion about reduced hours.

Closing date for applications is 9.00am 21st November 2022.
