Are you an exceptional Cover Supervisor?
A unique opportunity has arisen for a CASUAL Cover Supervisor to be part of our service.
The Medical Needs Teaching Service (MNTS) provides education for children and young people who are unable to attend school because of medical needs, including emotional and mental health. They may be taught in the community or in the specialist KS4 setting, Queenswood Education Centre (QEC). Teachers plan and deliver highly personalized lessons with a core subject focus to meet individual student need. Further information can be found on the MNTS tab on the east silc website.

The successful candidate will also have excellent literacy, numeracy, IT and communication skills to offer academic support, and be committed to high standards of behaviour and achievement.
