The University of Kent Academies Trust is seeking to appoint motivated and committed individuals to the role of Cover Supervisor to work across its two schools (Brompton Academy and Chatham Grammar School for Girls). 

You will be part of a team responsible for supervising whole classes of students to cover short-term absences of teachers (planned or emergency cover). This will involve facilitating students’ learning through supporting them with set activities (provided by teachers), responding to questions from students and managing their behaviour according to Trust Policy. 

To be successful in this role, you will need to be well organised, confident, and work well as part of a team. Previous experience in a similar role or classroom experience will be useful but not essential. However, flexibility, resilience, good numeracy and literacy skills and excellent communications skills will be key. 

The successful applicant will be coming to a multi-academy trust-wide supportive learning environment characterised by open management, and in the knowledge that they will enjoy the full support and care of the pragmatic (and down-to-earth) leadership team. We have a dynamic, innovative team of professional staff who want to make a difference to the lives, aspirations and opportunities of our young people.

The newly-formed multi-academy trust currently has two schools: Brompton Academy, which is an extremely popular oversubscribed school with a current Ofsted rating of Good (March 2017), and Chatham Grammar School for Girls, also with an Ofsted rating of Good, which offers its students a wide variety of educational opportunities with a commitment to ensuring that its students achieve good educational outcomes, develop healthy minds and aspire to be happy confident young women ready to embark on a variety of aspirational careers.
