Vetro Education North Wales requires a number of HLTA / Cover Supervisors to support schools based in Wrexham Starting from September.

Are you about to sign up for a teaching course and want to further your classroom-based experience?

Are you the type of person who wants to make a difference of the lives of children, within a secondary school environment?

About the Role.
Working at these schools will give you the opportunity to work full time, part-time or on a flexible Ad hoc basis as the schools often require cover in a variety of departments.Not only is this a great opportunity to work to a schedule that suits you but it's also the perfect way to gain experience in a secondary setting and/or take the next step towards becoming a secondary school teacher.

The role itself:
Working as a Cover Supervisor can be very rewarding but also very demanding. The main job of a Cover Supervisor is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set by an absent teacher.

  • Supervising the completion of the cover work by effectively communicating the work set to students
  • Managing the behaviour of pupils whilst they are undertaking set work to ensure a positive learning environment
  • Responding to any questions from pupils about process and procedures
  • Dealing with any immediate problems or emergencies in accordance with school policy and procedures
  • Collecting completed work after the lesson and returning it to the appropriate teacher
  • Reporting back as appropriate, using the school’s standard procedures on the behaviour of pupils during the class, and any issues arising.

In order to be considered for this role:
  • You will have previous experience of working with secondary age children
  • You will have the confidence to control a class (often with no classroom assistants)
  • You should have the ability to be flexible and work within a variety of subjects
