'Good' Devon School, Sidmouth College, is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, flexible and motivated person to join our team of Cover Supervisors at the College in March 2021.
We require a confident person who can relate well to students and is committed to supporting learning and teaching.
The post holder will work under the guidance of the College’s teaching/senior staff and within an agreed system of supervision. Their role will be to supervise whole classes across all key stages during the short-term absence of teachers and to respond to questions and generally assist students in undertaking set activities.
In addition to this, the post holder will be required to teach a small number of hours per week in our Technology department from September 2021. Experience in teaching Design & Technology or Food & Nutrition would be beneficial although training can be provided.
Experience of working in a secondary school environment and/or supporting secondary school aged students is essential. Experience of working in an administrative role would be desirable as the successful candidate will also undertake administrative work, and learning mentor duties under the direction of the Director of SEND when not required to carry out cover supervision.
The ability to relate well to children and adults; to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English; to demonstrate and promote good practice in line with the ethos of the school/organisation; and to work constructively as part of a team, to understand classroom roles and responsibilities and own position within these is essential.
This post would be suitable for an individual who is interested in joining the teaching profession and would like some school-based experience.
We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our students and, if successful, you will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.
We are committed to equal opportunities.
