Cover Supervisor

Northampton International AcademyNorthamptonshire

Northampton international academy are seeking to appoint 2 Cover Supervisors on a permanent contract term time only to support the teaching staff across the school. The successful candidate will be required to supervise classes for absent teaching staff across both primary and secondary. When not needed to cover absent colleagues, they may be required to do other tasks such as intervention work with small groups of students withdrawn from a class.  The successful candidate will be resilient and resourceful, understand how to manage behaviours, and be able to ‘think on their feet’.

Many staff use the experience of working as a cover supervisor as a steppingstone into teaching or other related fields of work involving working with young people.

Experience of working with young people is essential, as is experience of working in a school environment with the ability to lead a class.

 If you have the passion to positively contribute to our ethos and the drive to make a difference for our pupils and staff, then we would like to hear from you.

Northampton International Academy is a local school with a global vision and this is at the very core of our curriculum offer. Every school in the East Midlands Academy Trust (EMAT) is committed to providing the highest standard of education so that all children are supported to be the best that they can be. This will be achieved by the delivery of a well-planned and highly effective curriculum which is driven by our values. We believe in the transformational power of education. Transformation is in the very fabric of our building, having been transformed from the derelict and disused Royal Mail sorting office into a state-of-the-art educational facility. 

Even in this difficult time of pandemic, we have managed to maintain a broad and balanced curriculum, with key stage 3 learners accessing the specialist facilities on a rotational basis. In addition to our subject-based curriculum, our character education has been introduced throughout our all-through school as its DNA from reception through to Year 13.  This character curriculum helps to prepare children for future learning and their adult lives. Focusing on the characteristics of Responsibility, Collaboration, Respect, Care, Excellence and Aspiration, our DNA of NIA complements our subject curriculum and our House system. 

 As a school, we are still growing. Therefore, we have a range of exciting opportunities for a September start. Please do watch the video of our school poem 'What We Are Made Of' to get to know us better.

By working for our Trust, you’ll be able to take advantage of a wealth of professional development and support opportunities, as well as a range of employee benefits.

These include:

·        Continuous professional development and training opportunities

·        Dedicated support from our school improvement team
