We are seeking to appoint an innovative, inspiring and well-qualified Cover Supervisor Team Leader to manage the cover team at our fantastic Academy. The successful candidate may either be a teacher working in a similar role or someone looking for a first step into the world of teaching. We are looking for someone who has excellent timekeeping and attention to detail. The successful candidate should also have excellent organisational and communication skills to manage and deliver cover lessons for classes in the absence of a teacher. This will include supervising students, maintaining a positive learning environment and managing the behaviour of students in the classroom when delivering cover lessons. Specifically though, the Cover Supervisor Team Leader will also have the responsibility of managing the cover schedule, planning daily cover and liaising with teachers, members of the leadership team and external stakeholders.
This is a great role for someone who is interested in becoming a teacher, the last three candidates have all done a year in this role then moved on to teacher training. You will be supported and guided by an experienced member of the leadership team and the role is well respected by students and staff.
We hope that the application pack, along with the Academy’s website, gives you all of the information that you need to help you apply for a post here. Chelsea Academy is a great place to work and visitors often comment on the excellent behaviour of our students, the friendliness of our staff and the fantastic Academy building. Our aim is simple; to provide the best quality education for all the students that attend the Academy, to produce happy and employable young people and to become one of the best schools in London.
We are currently graded outstanding by Ofsted and SIAMS, a World Class School and are a member of the Leading Edge network. In the summer we achieved our best ever GCSE and A level results in terms of both progress (top 10% nationally) and attainment. However, we are much more than a successful, academically focused school. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for. It is important that all of our staff, whether they are teachers or not, work closely with our young people and ensure that they are successful in all that they do. We are looking for staff who will always go the extra mile for our young people and believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom.
Chelsea Academy is a great place to work (we are one of the few schools in the country with Investors in People Gold), our staff are friendly and supportive and we offer a whole range of professional development opportunities no matter what stage you are at in your career. We want all of our teachers to be outstanding and so offer unrivalled professional development and support. This includes a CPD session every week (including opportunities to regularly visit other schools for newly qualified teachers) and a thriving in house Lead Practitioner team that coach and support staff across the Academy. Through the Chelsea Academy Way for Learning we have a simple, flexible and consistent way of developing outstanding teaching. Most of our senior and middle leaders started as teachers with us and have developed into highly talented practitioners. We offer internal and external training through NPQML, NPQSL and Teaching Leaders - your professional development is important to us. Academy staff have access to a wide range of benefits these include a private healthcare package, 24 hour GP service, physiotherapy and a confidential well-being support line as well as a laptop and free lunch
