About the role: Due to a number of our current post-holders embarking on teacher training next year, Wilmington Academy now has an opportunity to appoint a Cover Supervisor to join their dedicated team to provide full support to the staff and students. The successful candidates will ensure the good behaviour of our students and make sure students engage in their learning during short-term absence of teachers. Cover work will be supplied wherever possible for you to use as a basis for the lessons and we will also determine your subject specialisms with you as a preference. Excellent inter-personal skills are required for this post as our successful candidates need to demonstrate that they can build good rapport with staff and students alike. This post is ideal for graduates with an interest in developing a career in teaching as the experience you can gain from this is first-hand, and also those who may have had experience within the education sector beforehand.
Please consult the Job Description by clicking here for an overview of the responsibilities of the post holder. Please note that whilst previous experience within an education environment is desirable, full training will be provided for successful candidates.
Working basis: Paid on Claim; you can agree in advance with the Line Manager which days you are available and can be contacted on any of these to be called into work. The role offers £77.35 per day that you work and a £10 retainer per day when you are available but not required to work. This suits those seeking a more flexible way of working as your days can be agreed in advance.
About Wilmington Academy: Wilmington Academy joined the Trust in September 2010. The academy is a highly successful and growing secondary, housed in state of the art buildings in a semi-rural location just outside of Dartford. Rated by Ofsted as Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management, Wilmington offers a calm and purposeful learning environment where students can flourish and succeed.
Our success is achieved through teamwork. Subject teams work closely together to share resources and ideas to achieve the very best outcomes for our students. We support the Trust model of small schools within a school, so that no student is left behind. Vertical tutor groups, an excellent pastoral programme underpinned by a strong moral purpose helps students to develop into responsible, well-educated young adults who are ready to take their next steps in life. A large proportion of our students go on to University and high-level apprenticeships.
We aim for excellence in everything we do and have received recognition at a regional and national level for our work. We are forward thinking and outward facing, constantly striving to advance and improve. We are very supportive and offer excellent training and development opportunities for staff at the various stages of their careers. We are a friendly, caring and ambitious community placing the academic progress and welfare of our students at the heart of everything we do.
Diversity at our core: As a Trust we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of age, gender, race, beliefs or disabilities which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise. The academy is committed to safeguarding children and successful candidates will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check. Our commitment to safeguarding is underpinned by robust processes and checks which are in place across the Trust.
