Due to an internal move Outwood Academy Ripon, welcomes applications from outstanding applicants with integrity, imagination and energy for these rewarding roles. Historic Ripon may be the third smallest city in Britain, but its home to one of the country’s best performing academies. In our last OFSTED inspection (January 2016) we were judged outstanding in all areas. Ofsted recognise that ‘Outstanding teaching is at the root of students’ excellent achievement’ and ‘the excellent behaviour of students contributes to an outstanding climate for learning’. 

Starting as soon as possible, we are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic and inspiring cover supervisor with a real passion for working with young people. We offer an exciting opportunity to enhance an already highly successful and motivated team, characterised by an ambitious drive for excellence centred on the academy’s motto ‘Students First’. You will have the initiative and vision, to deliver excellence and have a clear focus on creating an environment to achieve outstanding outcomes for our students. You will support the teaching and learning to raise standards and transform our students’ life choices.

The purpose of this post is to supervise students for absent teaching staff. You will work under the direction of the lead cover supervisor and Heads of Department delivering work and tasks pre-prepared by the absent teacher or the Head of Department. You will be responsible for supervising students within the classroom whilst following Academy policies on classroom behaviour for learning and using the Consequences procedures. The ability to work as part of team is essential and experience of working in a similar role or environment would be an advantage. Candidates should have excellent communication skills, be organised and able to remain calm in a busy environment. Strong IT skills specifically in Microsoft Office are essential. Training will be provided on our management information system. The ability to work on own initiative as well as part of team is essential and experience of working in a similar role or environment would be an advantage.
