Brompton Academy, part of the University of Kent Academies Trust, is seeking to find highly motivated and committed individuals to join our team of casual Cover Supervisors.  The main purpose of the post is to supervise classes during the short-term absence of a teacher and to provide support in a range of areas.   

You will be part of a team responsible for supervising whole classes of students to cover short term absences of teachers (planned or emergency cover). This will involve facilitating students learning through supporting them with set activities (provided by teachers), responding to questions from students and managing their behaviour according to Academy Policy.

To be successful in this role you will need to be well organised, confident and work well as part of a team. Previous experience in a similar role or classroom experience will be useful but not essential. However, flexibility, resilience, good numeracy and literacy skills and excellent communications skills will be key. Working as a Cover Supervisor can be extremely rewarding but also very demanding.

The casual nature of this role will require flexibility and work patterns will vary.

Successful applicants will be coming to an academy wide supportive learning environment, characterised by open management, and in the knowledge that they will enjoy the full support and care of the pragmatic (and down to earth) leadership team. We have a dynamic, innovative team of professional staff who want to make a difference to the lives, aspirations and opportunities of our young people.

The Academy is an extremely popular oversubscribed school with a current Ofsted rating of Good. The Academy also has a 400+ Adult learner education programme.

The Academy moved into brand new buildings in September 2013, with outstanding facilities, and Apple technologies for all, enabling us to enhance and support cutting edge learning strategies required for continuous improvement.

This is a rolling recruitment programme and candidates are requested to submit their application at the earliest opportunity.  Candidates meeting the criteria will then be invited for interview.
