We are looking to appoint Cover Supervisors to provide lesson and registration cover for class teachers in years 7 – 11. You must be confident, highly organised and have excellent interpersonal skills.  Strong communication skills are essential, as you will be required to liaise between both students and class teachers. The post will suit someone with a natural ability to engage with young people. This role is a superb opportunity for anyone wishing to gain experience in a school environment, possibly as part of their career development.

We work meticulously to secure a culture of unapologetically high expectations that are underpinned by our collective, uncompromising belief and ambition for the students of Beacon Academy, and for the experienced, loyal, highly-skilled and highly-effective team of staff that teach them, allowing teachers to teach and students to learn in a school where leadership, management, behaviour, safeguarding and welfare are all judged as outstanding. The Academy is committed to the development of both its staff and students.

We will consider applications for full and part time roles. We have various hours available for the right candidate working a minimum of 3 fixed days per week. Days of the week worked are negotiable. A 8:20am start is essential. This role is paid on Single Status Grade 4, currently £18,426 - £18,795 per annum full time equivalent.
