An outline of a typical Cover Supervisor day will involve:

  • To carry out pre-prepared exercises when teaching staff are absent from the classroom (normally the absent teacher will have left some notes for you to follow and deliver to the class)
  • You will manage the classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set
  • You will NOT teach any form of lesson but will leave handover notes for when the class teacher returns.
  • You will cover lessons of all subjects

Although you do not require any specific qualifications to be a Cover Supervisor, you do need transferable skills, such as: good written and communication skills, the ability to form strong relationships, patience and excellent organisation.
