Job Ref:

Are you looking to enrol on a PGCE?

Do you want to gain hands on classroom experience to boost your skills and confidence?

Do you want to be paid for doing something you love?

Teaching Personnel might have the perfect opportunity for you.

The head of a comprehensive school in Caerphilly is looking for a full time cover supervisor for the year. They said that the ideal candidate will either come from a strong Teaching Assistant background or will be someone with a specialist subject area potentially looking to enrol on a PGCE course in the future. The school is specifically looking for individuals with excellent classroom and behaviour management so if you have strong tutoring or coaching experience, this might be a perfect role for you.

The school is based just outside of Caerphilly town centre. Having recently been 'lifted' out of special measures, new leadership is seeing huge progress being made across all areas of school life, particularly behavioural ethos.

Typically, being a cover supervisor means more day to day work, however the school are looking to appoint someone full time, with the intention of offering a permanent contract to the successful person after Christmas.

The role
* Cover Supervisor to KS3 & 4 pupils
* Working in a challenging secondary school environment
* Situated in Caerphilly
* Immediate start date
* Full time hours
* Up to £325 a week
* Opportunity to gain a full time permanent contract in the school depending on performance.

As a cover supervisor you will be expected to delegate work set by the teacher in their absence. You will be expected to maintain classroom behaviour and ensure work is completed. Although you will be supported by teaching assistants and other faculty members, you are there to showcase excellent classroom management.

If you are considering applying for a PGCE but want to gain more classroom experience, this could be a perfect opportunity for you. The role is challenging but promises a realistic view of teacher life. Ultimately, it is a great way to network and build connections in the school with opportunities to be taken onto a full time contract.

You Must
* Be available to interview immediately
* Have excellent behavioural management
* Work well under pressure
* Be adaptable
* Be able to improvise
