Are you currently looking for an exciting route into teaching?

Are you a graduate who is looking for a rewarding career within a variety of Stoke-on-Trent secondary schools?

Due to a recent high demand from our Stoke-on-Trent partnership secondary schools, Academics are looking to recruit positive & enthusiastic Graduate Cover Supervisors!

What is a Cover Supervisor?

Cover Supervisors are used in secondary schools to provide cover for a class when a teacher is not available. They are employed on a flexible and day-to-day basis to ensure that a teacher can have time away from the classroom to carry out other duties (planning, assessment, or training days). They may also cover lessons for teachers who are away from school due to sickness or for other absences. An Cover Supervisor is not responsible for planning, teaching, or assessing a lesson. The class teacher will set work for students to complete and the Cover Supervisor will ensure that pupils remain on task by managing behaviours.
