Part time applications are welcome. 

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, confident and skilled Cover Supervisor to join our team of professionals as soon as possible.

The ability to work calmly and often under pressure is essential.   A good working knowledge of current ICT packages is required and previous experience of working in a school environment would be an advantage. However, we have a strong commitment to developing our staff so you can also expect to engage in a range of training activities. As such this is an excellent preparation for anyone considering a career in either teaching or supporting students’ learning.

Warden Park Secondary Academy is a significantly over-subscribed school demonstrating the high regard with which it is held in the local community.  The vast majority of our students are committed and hard-working and it is in no doubt that this is a very enjoyable place to work.
