Grade 7, Points 11-14 (£22,782 - £24,057) fte

Actual Salary - £15,361 - £16,221 (pay award pending)

Do you want a job that is fulfilling? Do you love and value supporting young people? Do you believe in the opportunity for every child to have the best possible opportunity to learn? Are you patient, tenacious, optimistic and a great communicator? Then Ashby School could be the place for you!

We are looking to expand our excellent team of Cover Supervisors to support students in the case of absence of their usual classroom teacher. We want to appoint an individual who can command respect, who understands how to communicate with young people, who is interested in being a learner and who works well as part of a team. We also seek to appoint someone who understands that this role is not always needed every lesson of every day and, as such, is willing to work with students in alternative capacities supporting learning in its broadest sense.

Cover Supervisor is also an excellent opportunity to start your journey into teaching. We believe that Ashby is a great place for students to take their next educational steps, be it as they join our Year 10 or as we welcomed our first Year 7s in August 2022. We also believe it is an equally great place to consider your next steps into a role in education. Whether this is building experience for an application to train as a teacher or exploring whether education is a good fit for you, this role is offered in conjunction with a full suite of continuing professional development, reflections on your progress to shape your classroom persona and personal advice around an application onto the LiFE Multiacademy ‘Teach for LiFE’ teacher training programme where you have an appropriate suite of qualifications.

Hours of work are 8.45 am – 3.05pm Monday to Friday with 30 minutes unpaid lunch. This is for 38 weeks term time plus one extra week to attend teacher days, training, meetings etc. This is a permanent contract.

So, if you think this could be just what you have been looking for, we look forward to welcoming your application.

Application forms and further details available on the school website.
