Randstad Education have cover supervisor & teaching assistant vacancies for secondary schools in the Preston area commencing immediatley. The schools we supply staff to continually require cover during the school term meaning Randstad Education can offer regular short-term, long-term and day-to-day work all year round.

Working as a cover supervisor can be extremely rewarding but also very demanding. There is a high level of responsibility, however, there is always a teacher close at hand if needed. 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 for example.

The role of a Cover Supervisor includes:
-Undertaking whole class supervision in the absence of the class teacher, setting work previously prepared by the teacher
-Developing curricular knowledge as required by the school
-Applying the school's behaviour management policy and report any difficulties to the class teacher/head teacher
-Setting homework previously prepared by the teacher
