We are seeking to appoint highly motivated and flexible team players who will be expected to provide cover in lessons for absent teachers. The role will primarily involve communicating teacher set tasks to pupils and supervising the completion of that work whilst promoting positive behaviour and conduct.
We expect that these positions will attract applicants from a range of backgrounds, but all with the common experience of working successfully with young people in an education or similar setting. Equally, this opportunity might suit those applicants with a proven aptitude for working with young people and who may be considering a teaching career in the future and are looking for valuable relevant experience.
Whilst some cover needs may be known in advance e.g. known school trips, planned absences etc. many will only be determined early on the day e.g. if a response to staff illness or emergency leave. As a result, the successful applicants will need to be flexible and available to come in to school at short notice for all or part of a day. The school appreciates that the applicants may have other commitments and may not always be available.
The distinctive Turton ethos is values-led. Compassion and good relationships underpin all of our practices. The successful candidate will join a team of hard-working and dedicated colleagues, supportive parents, a fully involved governing body and, of course, inspiring students.
