A Cover supervisor duties - Information from TES.
The cover supervisor’s main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set. So officially, cover supervisors:
• Don’t plan
• Don’t have the subject knowledge
• Don’t mark work
• Don’t set homework
• Don’t differentiate
• Don’t set targets
However, in the TES Forums many cover supervisors report undertaking 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:
Cover supervisors are often highly qualified in their particular field. Many schools specify an honours degree as a minimum educational requirement and like their CSs to have experience of working with young people. – This is what we are looking for!
Skills and knowledge
The following are desirable:
• Highly adaptable as there is no a regular timetable
• Have a thick skin – Dealing with young People
• Behaviour management skills
• Be diplomatic
• Want to have fun and enjoy working in a diverse environment.
The upsides: Cover supervisors on the TES forums say “Every day is different. I also work with behaviour when I’m not covering so it’s always a busy, diverse day for me. A CS is respected in my school and teachers need those people that can step in when they are away.”
