Supply Cover Supervisor

The Portsmouth Grammar School is a leading co-educational school located in the historic
heart of Portsmouth.

The school seeks to appoint Supply Cover Supervisors to join our Cover Supervisor team and work during PGS school terms as required by the Deputy Head. Supply Cover Supervisors provide cover for short or medium term absences on an ‘as and when required’ basis and therefore may be contacted at comparatively short notice for this provision. Although in appointing to this role we fully expect to be able to offer regular cover work, the school makes no specific guarantee of any such work.

All candidates should demonstrate a commitment to the welfare, education and development of young people and an understanding of the classroom setting in a senior school environment.

This would be an excellent opportunity for graduates looking to gain classroom experience prior to commencing a teaching qualification or training programme.

Supply Cover Supervisors are members of the support staff of the school, who oversee classes throughout the senior school, from Year 7 to Year 13, when the normal timetabled class teacher is absent. They are expected to take sole charge of a group of pupils and be directly responsible for ensuring that pupils complete the work set by the teacher and that pupils behave well in class.

A Supply Cover Supervisor will have an excellent ability to manage a whole class of pupils to ensure that they are on task throughout the lesson. The nature of the role means that a Supply Cover Supervisor may be asked to carry out other duties if they are in school but have no lesson to cover so it is important that they are flexible, adaptable and have good ICT skills.

The start date will be as soon as possible after interview, when all pre-appointment checks have been completed.

Candidates should be able to offer a good standard of education, with a minimum of GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade C. Experience of working with children and young people in an educational setting in either a paid or volunteer role would be an advantage but is not essential.

The school is committed to safeguarding children and the successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure DBS check.

The closing date for receipt of applications is noon, 12thNovember 2020.
