As Lemov writes, ‘No one wants to spend their career at odds with the organisation they work for, trying to hide from the training it offers, or watching the philosophy change every year while thinking, this too shall pass.’

We are seeking to appoint a Learning Supervisor, whose primary role will be to cover the classes of teachers who are absent from school. Whilst no teaching qualification is required, the successful candidate will have the ability to create a climate for learning and establish a working atmosphere, ensuring that students remain focused on their work across all subjects. They will genuinely enjoy working with teenagers of all abilities and will be able to establish and build relationships with the students, whilst displaying a calm, authoritative and professional manner.

Main Duties and Responsibilities

The school day is made up of five lessons lasting one hour each. There is also registration at the start of the school day and DEAR time lasting 20 minutes after lunch during which cover may be needed. Please note that there are bound to be some occasions when no member of staff is absent. At such times the Learning Supervisors will be assigned to other duties which may including acting as a Teaching Assistant to an individual student or small group of students.

The main role of the Learning Supervisors is to “cover” the classes of teaches who are absent from school for a short time. Work will usually be set in advance. Therefore, Learning Supervisors will have to inform the class of the work that has been set and then oversee each student to ensure that they are fully engaged with the task during the course of the lesson.

The Learning Supervisors do not teach as such, however they do need to remain calm, patient and authoritative so that they quickly develop the ability to have good classroom control and classroom management skills. Basic computer skills are needed as classes are registered electronically.
