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

"Both The Education Network, as a company, and Lee-Ann, as an individual, have given me the opportunity to gain experience in a range of secondary schools. I graduated from University in the summer 2014 and after a short time in another profession I decided working in schools was definitely the career path I wanted to take. I registered with The Education Network as a Cover Supervisor to gain valuable experience ready to begin my official teacher training. I have had brilliant experiences in a few different schools, and with different age ranges, and have managed to undertake roles in both short and long term cover. The Education Network is a fantastic agency to be associated with."

The role of a Cover Supervisor:

- Manage the classroom ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set.
- Cover teacher absence whether it is in advance, day to day or long term supply.
- Cover a variety of lessons from English, PE, Science or Maths etc.
- Managing the behaviour of the pupils
- Being available to discuss and debate texts with pupils and answering questions.
- You will not have to plan or mark work and you don't have to have the subject knowledge; just the enthusiasm and confidence to deliver the work that has been set for you.

You could be required to work in 5 different schools in a week or in the same school all week therefore you will need to be very flexible, adaptable and must have a full driving license and your own transport.

We offer:

- The opportunity to work in friendly, caring and supportive atmosphere where every child matters.
- Highly supportive, committed and hard working Consultants who will endeavour to find assignments suited to your needs.
- An opportunity to extend your professional development as well as excellent rates of pay.
