The role of a cover supervisor is one performed by trained staff whose primary duty is supervising students in the event of a short-term absence by regular teaching staff. Whilst the day to day tasks vary in this type of job, the experience can be the most rewarding.
As this type of role is relatively new in the UK and exact duties vary depending on the school and the needs of the classroom, cover supervisors are responsible for managing classroom activities and providing additional support to teachers. In this role you can exercise your existing skillset and better acclimate yourself to the UK education system.
A cover supervisor role is similar to a teaching assistant, as there is always a regularly staffed teacher nearby if need be.
At World Class Teachers, we require our cover supervisor candidates to possess the following:
– A degree and extensive experience of working with children, ideally within a classroom setting
– A valid passport and visa which allows you to work in the UK
– Extensive experience in a classroom environment
Specific requirements for our cover supervisor roles will vary by job or by school, so please don’t forget to read the description thoroughly before sending your application.
