Cover Supervisor Job Shrewsbury

Job Description

Cover Supervisor Job Shrewsbury –  We are looking to supply a school in the Shrewsbury area with a Cover Supervisor. This is a full time role to cover a position for long term sickness.

Many schools like to use the same supply teachers due to continuity for the children and knowing the quality of learning they are receiving. As a result, if you make a good impression and show the school what you’re made of, they will constantly be asking for you back.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but it is also very demanding. The cover supervisor’s main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set by an absent teacher.

Qualifications Required

FFE will consider applications from individuals who hold one of the following qualifications:

·         Bachelor’s Degree

·         Post Graduate Degree

Cover supervisors are often highly qualified. Many schools specify a degree as a minimum educational requirement and require recent relevant experience working with secondary aged pupils in an educational setting. Cover supervisor jobs offer a fantastic opportunity for individuals looking to gain teaching and classroom experience before completing a PGCE.

Skills, Interests and Qualities

As a cover supervisor you will need to be:

·         highly adaptable as there is no regular timetable

·         be confident, organised and at times, diplomatic

·         patient, flexible, creative with a good sense of humour

You will need to demonstrate that you have:
