Free of charge Cover Supervisor training

Are you looking to get into teaching or break into the education sector? Are you a recent graduate who is looking for flexible work whilst you explore different career options? Or perhaps you’re an actor, ex-military professional or parent looking to work a job that fits round other commitments? Then attending our cover supervisor training to learn about the role could be for you.

As a Cover Supervisor no two days will ever be the same and working in a range of secondary schools your main job will be to manage a classroom in the absence of the usual class teacher, ensuring pupils complete their work to a high standard. Alongside this you’ll also learn school policies, gain a greater understanding of behaviour management and also get the opportunity to explore a variety of schools. Becoming a Cover Supervisor also has a great rate of pay, where dependent on the school location and your experience, you can look to earn between £65 and £80 a day.

As no previous school experience is necessary, we want to make sure you’re well equipped to take on this new job role. That’s why we’re providing free of charge Cover Supervisor training.


A Cover Supervisor role will suit anyone who has excellent communication skills and has achieved English and Maths at GCSE level.
