Have you graduated with a degree in Maths, Sciences, History, Geography or Languages?
Have you considered a career in Teaching or Training?
Maybe you are considering a PGCE course and would like to build experience in Education?


In the role of a Cover Supervisor, you are responsible for a class in the absence of their regular Teacher. You will take the register, ensure students are set the work that has been left for them and ensure that behaviour in the classroom is of the highest standards. Using your knowledge of the subjects, you will be required to support the students, answer questions and offer advice on completing their work. You may need to address challenging behaviours and handle urgent issues with quick-thinking and professionalism. At the end of the lesson you will often need to report on student’s behaviour and progress.

A daunting thought for some; an exciting and rewarding challenge for others.
We are looking for those who feel the latter!

To build experience in classrooms many people like yourself take on day-to-day or daily supply roles as Cover Supervisors which gives you the flexibility of working when you want and getting to know the subtly different systems in Schools around Hounslow, Richmond, Kingston or Hillingdon.

You may choose to remain in ‘temporary’ assignments until you decide whether Teaching is the career for you or you could quickly decide to progress into a PGCE course.

Whatever you decide, we are here to help you make those decisions.

About You!
A degree should be backed by a real passion in your chosen subject. A knowledge beyond the text books and ability to relate it to every aspect of day to day life is essential.

Experience in a Teaching or Tutoring role will help you to confidently engage and support students, either in a classroom or 1:1 role however, your personality and engaging character will make the difference.

Teachers develop a thick skin throughout their careers and you will need to start that process too. Resilience and persistence are strong characteristics in a Cover Supervisor in order to quickly establish credibility with students and engage them in the work at hand.

Strong written and verbal communication skills are essential. Whether writing on the board or completing a report for the Teacher, your standard of spelling and grammar must be of a high standard.
