Looking into a career in Teaching? Working as a Cover Supervisor gives you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in schools and academies before embarking upon your PGCE.

Cover Supervisors cover short term periods of absence by the class Teacher. They play a vital role in schools and the role should not be taken lightly, but this can be a rewarding job and valuable experience in the classroom for those with teaching ambitions.

The Cover Supervisor’s main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set. This requires no active teaching, marking, planning etc.

Typical work includes:

  • Oversee the completion of work that has been set
  • Provide students with a positive learning environment to aid student progress

  • Managing students behaviour in accordance with school policy
  • Report performance, behaviour and achievement at the end of the lesson
