Do you want to Teach but don’t have a relevant teaching Qualification?
Ever considered being a Cover Supervisor / Cover Teacher?
Are you looking for a full time role to start ASAP?
  
Cover Supervisors are essentially unqualified cover teachers who are able to take the responsibility of the full time class teacher if the full-time class teacher is absent.
  
Anzuk Education work with a number of Secondary Schools across Fareham who are seeking dedicated and enthusiastic Cover Supervisors to assist with cover teaching arrangements across all subject areas for KS3, KS4 and KS5!
  
As a Cover Supervisor you will:

  • Be expected to oversee pre-set lessons in the absence of the classroom teacher.
  • Need to be build rapport with students quickly
  • Have good behaviour management skills to manage the classroom in line with the schools policies.
  • Be willing to cover a range of subjects if necessary.
  • Not be required to deliver the lesson itself but you must ensure the pupils are on task and complete the work set by the teacher.

  
As a cover supervisor, you teach students in Key Stage 3 or 4 between the ages of 11 and 16.
Sometimes, a teacher cannot cover their regular lessons, and you take over. Unlike a teaching assistant who assists a teacher, you support a secondary school teacher by teaching the lesson on their behalf.
While most cover supervisors work with Key Stage 3 and 4 students, you sometimes teach younger Stage 1 and 2 pupils.
Since your primary role is supervising a classroom when the teacher is absent, you don’t prepare lesson plans. The class teacher provides the teaching materials and items necessary for the lesson.

While you are not actively teaching, having the necessary qualities and experience of a teacher is important. For instance, you require confidence to keep students motivated and focused on the lessons. You also assist pupils with tasks to ensure they keep up with the school curriculum even when the teacher is absent.

A cover supervisor performs various duties depending on the class they teach and the subjects.
Being a cover supervisor requires flexibility since some of these positions are short-term, and sometimes you work in different schools. For instance, you can work in public, private and independent or free schools. Sometimes, you also handle mixed-ability pupils like students with special needs.
