Cover Supervisors

Cover Supervisors are a regular feature in most secondary schools, in high demand and we’re recruiting now!

The Role

Is mainly to provide cover for absent teachers, manage a classroom ensuring that the students remain on task with the work that has been set. They play a huge part in the running of the majority of secondary schools and are now requested more and more to provide day to day or even long term cover on a temporary basis.

What you need

There are no formal qualifications needed to become a Cover Supervisor although a good level of education is ideal. To be successful in this role you need the right motivation, energy, patience and a sense of humour! Many candidates we work with are looking to get into teaching. You may have applied for a PGCE but narrowly missed out or may just want to gain some experience to see if the role is for you before embarking on a teaching career. Either way working as a Cover Supervisor is a great way to gain experience in a school setting giving you the opportunity to network with the possibility of other opportunities becoming available. You can work as little or as often as you like, although there is a huge demand so regular work is available. Even if you have another part time job you can still work with us as a Cover Supervisor.


Here at Class Solutions we offer a detailed free of charge training course delivered by a fully qualified experienced secondary teacher to help & assist you in this role. It covers a number of topics including delivering and structuring of a lesson, teaching styles, behaviour management techniques & safeguarding. For further details please contact a member of the team.

All cover supervisors will be subject to the same safeguarding and vetting procedures as fully qualified staff.

For an informal chat please call 01384 597585 or register your CV. You can also complete your details online via our contact form and we’ll be back in touch.
