Do you have experience of working with large groups of teenagers such as sports coaching, charity and youth work, or drama workshops for example? Are you a recent graduate looking to make a difference in the classroom? Do you have or are you working towards gaining a Further Education or TEFL qualification and have experience of working with 16-18 year olds but want to work and gain experience within the younger years in secondary schools? Are you currently working as a Teaching Assistant and would like more responsibility? If the answer is yes to any of these questions then ‘Cover Supervisor’ work with Randstad Education could be for you!
On behalf of a Southport secondary school we are looking for a cover supervisor who can work on a day-to-day ad hoc basis, but this could lead to something more long-term in future. On most days the work is a full school day, but you may cover just for mornings or afternoons, or even one lesson; the work can be very flexible to suit your availability. The requirement is due to an expected increase in the need for day to day cover within this mainstream setting, covering absent teachers due to training courses, meetings or sickness.
Roles vary from ad-hoc daily cover to longer term positions, although this could lead to something more long-term in future, dependent upon the schools need. The successful candidate would need to be available to start as soon as possible, when schools return.
We appreciate the uncertainty of the current situation, but we are continuing to recruit on behalf of our schools during this period. We are anticipating unprecedented demand on the reopening of our schools, so if you would like to be in the best position for work, then we would be interested to hear from you.
A dedicated, professional and friendly specialist consultant and a branch with 24-hour on-call facilities
Commitment to your continuing professional development through free training including safeguarding and ‘Team Teach’
Competitive rates of pay paid weekly, fully compliant under the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR, 2011)
Flexible hours and working patterns
A ‘Recommend a friend’ bonus worth up to £300
Being willing and able to supervise classes of 11-18 year-olds, managing behaviour in line with school policies
Delivering lessons from a range of subjects across the national curriculum set by a qualified teacher, with no planning or marking involved
Engaging with the pupils and keeping them on task, assisting with queries where possible
Dealing with any immediate issues or emergencies according to the school policies and procedures
Experience of working with secondary age children, which can be referenced (voluntary work included)
An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) – we can help with this!
A flexible, punctual, professional and approachable manner
The ability to establish rapport quickly with children whilst maintaining a high standard of control and discipline
A degree qualification or a qualification in teaching and learning support (advantageous, not essential)
We are proud to support a diverse portfolio of schools across Merseyside, so even if this job or location is not suitable, we would still like to hear from you regarding your relevant experience, as we may have other roles available in schools, temporary or permanent, short-or long-term, full or part-time, which may be a better match.
All candidates will be subject to Randstad Education’s child protection and UK eligibility checks, including enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and full referencing process, and the cost of any new police check (DBS) required will be met by the candidate.
If you are suitable for this position a phone interview will be offered in the first instance, until the reopening of our office, were a brief face to face meeting will be conducted to complete the registration process.
