14.5 hours per week, worked over 2 days
Term time only - 38 weeks worked
Plus 5 additional training days as directed by the school.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Benfield School from September to work as a Cover Supervisor for 2 days per week as a job share with a permanent member of staff who has recently reduced her working hours.

The days required are 8.00am - 4.00pm on Thursday and 8.00am - 3.30pm on Friday with a 30 minute lunch break, although some flexibility to meet the operational needs of the school is desirable.

Your main role will be to cover lessons and supervise whole classes across all subjects within Key Stages 3 and 4 when teachers are absent, although you will be deployed to undertake a range of other tasks related to student learning if no formal cover is required.

You will need a good knowledge of English and Maths at Level 2 or above and will ideally have higher level qualifications in order to effectively support students’ learning. Previous experience of supervising students in a secondary school environment is highly desirable and you will need to be able to implement school policies effectively to ensure students have appropriate behaviour and attitudes for learning and are safe.

NEAT is highly committed to the professional development of its staff and identifying talent for the future. This is reflected in the desire for the successful candidate to attend all five school/trust training days to access CPD. We also provide access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, a generous annual leave entitlement and have an accrued time policy.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. You will need to have an enhanced criminal records check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

This post may involve working with children, vulnerable adults or dealing with sensitive information. Please note that in all cases written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.

A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 8am on Monday 24 June 2019 by email to lilian.reeson@benfield.newcastle.sch.uk

Shortlisting: 8am, Monday 24 June 2019
Assessment/interviews for shortlisted candidates: Thursday 27 June 2019.
