Veritas Education are recruiting a number of Cover Supervisors for Secondary Schools throughout KIRKLEES.

You need to be a strong character for this role to manage the classroom behaviour.

Cover supervisors were originally introduced as a way of maintaining teacher's non contact periods but have become a permanent fixture in schools. It can be a rewarding job and a useful way of getting experience in the classroom for those with teaching ambitions.

Daily Rate

The daily pay rate will be between £50 & £80 per day depending on your experience.


Cover Supervisors are usually in school during normal school hours, but because there isn't a need to plan/mark there's rarely the need to stay after school.

Cover supervisor duties

The cover supervisor's main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set. Curiously, cover supervisors are often defined by what they don't do So, usually, cover supervisors:

  • Don't plan
  • Don't have subject knowledge
  • Don't mark work
  • Don't set homework
  • Don't differentiate
  • Don't set targets
  • However many of our cover supervisors report doing the following duties:

  • Teaching grammar
  • Managing behaviour
  • Discussing and debating texts with pupils and answering questions
  • Differentiating and allocating extension exercises.
  • Qualifications needed to become a cover supervisor

    Veritas Education requires our Cover Supervisors to have an honours degree or equivalent as a minimum educational requirement and to have experience of working with young people.

    Skills and knowledge

    The following are desirable:

  • Highly adaptable as there is no a regular timetable
  • Have a thick skin
  • Behaviour management skills
  • Be diplomatic
  • The upsides

    Everyday is different and its an excellent way to get into working in a school environment. Many of our Cover Supervisors go on to train as Teachers. As the majority of work is on a Day to Day basis, it can be very flexible and we see many Cover Supervisors working Part Time to suit themselves.

    The downside

    Because the work is usually on a day to day basis, its hard to guarantee work. There are usually a number of quiet periods throughout the school year, mainly at the end and beginning of a new term.

    If you're interested in working as a Cover Supervisor with Veritas Education and have a degree along with experience of working with children then please contact the Secondary Team.
