Closing date:

Brookvale Groby Learning CampusGroby

Date posted:
Start date: As soon as possible
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Grade 7 - £13,440 - Pay grade will be adjusted should long term cover be required
Contract term: Permanent

The Brookvale Groby Learning Campus is a highly successful 11-19 educational organisation created from the integration of two schools on the same site.  Brookvale High School is an ‘outstanding’ 11-14 school and Groby Community College is a 14-19 upper school graded ‘good with outstanding features’ in its last Ofsted.  Together, the campus meets the educational needs of 1,600 students with nearly 400 at Post 16, and we operate as one school within our own Multi Academy Trust. 

 We have a strong ethos of valuing everyone and achieving excellence for all.  We set very high standards for our students and ourselves, we work hard, we look after each other, and we are committed to professional learning for all staff. As a consequence the motto we use on a daily basis with our young people is work hard, be kind which we feel symbolises the culture we aim to create on campus.

The Cover Supervision Team works across the campus to provide day to day cover for absent teachers.  Led by the Cover Manager, Karen Middleton, we have a small, dedicated team of Cover Supervisors who are highly skilled at stepping in to any curriculum area to deliver lessons in order to make sure learning continues in spite of the teacher’s absence.   

We are looking for someone with previous classroom experience.  You may be a graduate, who is considering teaching as a career and would like some further school experience before applying for teacher training.  The post will start as a Cover Supervisor role across the curriculum.  If a long term teacher absence arises during the course of the year in a curriculum area that is relevant to the Associate Teacher’s expertise, consideration will be given as to whether the Associate Teacher could step in to provide long term cover, and if that is the case, the pay grade will be adjusted accordingly for the relevant period, and professional support will be put in place to ensure success.

 If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, and enjoy being part of a busy friendly team, then we’d love to hear from you.

Full details and an application form can also be found on our website -

Visits to the campus are welcome.  If you would like to arrange an appointment, please contact Elaine Freeman - or telephone 0116 2879921.

We look forward to hearing from you.
