We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic colleague to lead the Cover Team. You will be required to manage and record staff absences, arranging planned and unplanned teaching staff cover and room changes using SIMS software, as well as liaising with outside agencies to source teaching supply cover.  

The Cover Manager will also supervise lessons for absent colleagues which will include leading the lesson which has been set by the class teacher/department. The classroom based part of the role will be to give instruction and to ensure an appropriate climate for learning. You will be required to respond to pupils’ requirements in the lesson and ensure adherence to school policies for upholding the highest expectations and support for students to succeed, under the professional direction of teachers.

You should ideally be educated to at least A Level, with a high level of literacy and numeracy skills.  You need to be an excellent communicator, have sound organisational skills and be able to work confidently using your own initiative.   Previous experience is desirable, as is knowledge of behaviour management strategies and how to motivate young people.   An understanding of SIMS would be beneficial although training will be available for the right candidate.
