Leigh Academy Bexley has a core team of Cover Supervisors who provide essential support across the school in periods of teacher absence, such as PPA cover, school trips, short absence, etc. We are growing our team and have an exciting opportunity to appoint an additional Cover Supervisor to join us as soon as possible. Cover Supervisors are responsible for providing instructions and ensuring the work set by the class teacher is worked on by students, answering students' general questions and reporting back to the teacher on a range of issues. Our successful candidate will enjoy working with secondary-aged students, be patient and empathetic, and be confident in leading a full class. It is an amazing opportunity and a great way of having a clear understanding of a school’s day-to-day operation if you are interested in undertaking ‘Teacher Training’ in the near future. A Cover Supervisor’s role allows you to explore a range of subjects within a school which further enhances one’s opportunities.
Please note that Cover Supervisors do not have any responsibility for planning lessons themselves, or any form of assessment of students' progress or development.
The working basis of this role is 36 hours per week during Term Time, plus 1 week inset.
