Job Description / Person Specification

Applications are invited for the post of Cover Supervisor at Laurence Jackson School.  With uncertainty elsewhere in teacher training, we feel that this is a good potential first stage into the teaching profession and will support candidates with appropriate skills to pursue that outcome.


Cover Supervisors provide an excellent background of experience and a genuine insight into the skill sets required for a career in teaching.  LJS has a good track record of providing relevant CPD for support staff and several previous post holders have progressed on to teacher training with great success.


The successful candidate would join a vibrant team of support staff and would have the opportunity to track a highly experienced Cover Supervisor as part of their induction.


Candidates are welcome to visit the school to get a feel for the positive learning environment.


Applications should include a letter (no more than 2 sides of A4) which clearly outlines why candidates want to take on the role of Cover Supervisor and where that fits into an overall career plan.  Additionally, why they want to work at LJS and what other attributes they have to offer to the wider school ethos should be included.


Application forms and further details are available on the school’s website –  Please return completed application forms to Mrs D Anderson, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Closing date for applications is noon on Wednesday 20 March, shortlisting will take place later that week.  Interviews will be held on Tuesday 26 March.


Laurence Jackson School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and an enhanced DBS disclosure will be sought, along with other relevant employment checks.
