Job/Person Summary

Priestlands is seeking to appoint two Cover Supervisors to start in September 2024 at the beginning of the autumn term.  This post provides an ideal opportunity to gain versatile experience in a classroom environment and is particularly suitable for candidates thinking about a career in teaching or for those who wish to work and gain experience during a gap year before going on to University. 

It will appeal to someone who likes being with young people and helping them to learn and succeed when the usual teacher is unavailable. It will require an innovative approach so that students can gain access to the work set and complete it in the time allowed.  You will need to have a good sense of discipline (firm but fair) but a non-confrontational approach to the students is essential.  Previous experience of working with young people in a similar role would be an advantage but is not essential as induction and training will be provided.  However, the post will best suit someone who is naturally comfortable in the presence of young people.

The post is for a total of 30 hours per week, 8.30am-3.10pm Monday to Friday which includes an unpaid lunch break.  You will receive your salary in 12 equal payments.  The post is for 39 working weeks per year (term time only), but you will be paid for 44.60 weeks of the year to include holiday pay. 

Benefits of working at Priestlands  include:
