Cover Supervisor

Teaching Personnel

£66.30 - 75.00 per day

Trafford Park

Temporary | Part Time



Are you a recent graduate looking to pursue a career in the education sector?

Are you looking to make some money following your university studies as well as support a possible future PGCE application?

Working with a number of secondary schools in the Trafford area (Sale, Altrincham and Stretford), Teaching Personnel are looking to recruit 3 to 4 cover supervisors to register for work in the new academic year. These temporary positions are within a number of schools we work with, dependent upon school requirement. The cover supervisors will benefit from gaining valuable experience at supporting in these schools as well as competitive pay whilst working in these supportive environments.

The role requires the successful candidate to be confident and adaptable in their approach. Previous experience (in a voluntary capacity or otherwise) working with students, perhaps in a secondary school or youth work setting is a must with the prospective cover supervisors motivated and able to converse, liaise and engage with young people of between 11 – 16.

Highlights of the cover supervisor role:

  • Get paid for delivering pre-set work in a number of secondary schools in the Trafford area
  • Pay will be worked out on a daily basis ranging between £66.30 and £75 depending upon previous experience and specific schools
  • Gain valuable experience working in a secondary school setting whilst being paid
  • Options for work in schools in Sale, Altrincham, Trafford Park, Stretford and nearby areas

The role of a cover supervisor is to deliver pre-set work in the absence of the classroom teacher. The role commands a certain level of flexibility as you may be delivering and supervising classes varying in size, ability and age. The successful cover supervisor could be covering a range of subjects giving you amazing experience for a future as a teacher.

The schools we are recruiting for are situated in the Trafford area making it very easy to access from the nearby areas of Urmston, Flixton, Stretford and Trafford in general. The central Metrolink is well located for those cover supervisors travelling by public transport but if you drive, many of these schools have on site car parking facilities and the M60/M56 motorway networks are nearby.

  • Work alongside professional teachers, gaining unparalleled experience of working within a school environment
  • Opportunity to network within the school setting and gain consistent work as schools often ask for the same people back to support in their schools

This role will suit a recent graduate who has some experience of engaging with young adults aged 11 – 16. A graduate who is confident in their approach and has a professional manner would be ideal. If you are looking to pursue a future role in teaching, then apply now with your latest CV.
