Cover Supervisor


57.50 – 64.40 Per Day

Immediate starts available

Vision for Education are seeking Cover Supervisors to work in one of our partner Secondary schools in Barnsley. Cover Supervisors are an integral part of a school’s teaching staff, using their ability to adapt in the classroom to ensure that students’ day to day learning is not interrupted. Cover Supervisors ideally will be trained to degree level, however this isn’t essential if you have a good amount of experience working in education with Secondary or Post-16 aged students.

The role

The primary role of a Cover Supervisor is to manage lessons in the absence of a teacher. Specific subject knowledge is not required as all work will be set and provided. We just expect a good level of classroom management to be maintained, and tasks set to be completed to a timely standard. Cover Supervisors are expected to be flexible in their approach, and confident to cover across a variety of subjects.


To be considered for the position of Cover Supervisor, you will:

• Have experience supporting Teaching and Learning within schools.

• Have experience working with children up to the age of 18

• Have a genuine desire to become part of a committed team of Cover Supervisors.

Vision for Education is committed to Safeguarding children and young people. We take our responsibilities extremely seriously. All staff we register will undertake thorough interviewing and referencing checks and hold, or be prepared to undergo, an Enhanced DBS Check that must be registered to the Update Service.
