Being a Course Supervisor is a challenging yet rewarding role for individuals who like variety and are confident in their own ability to manage classes of students that they do not know.
Thisr role has become an essential part of school staffing, and it is not uncommon to find cover supervisors as part of the permanent staff base in larger schools.
Cover supervision will vary according to the school type, for example primary and secondary schools will have different needs. However, the role in any school should not involve any active teaching, marking, or planning. You do not need any subject-specific knowledge.
The primary role of a cover supervisor is to ensure that students remain on task and behave well in the absence of their normal teacher.
