Supply Teacher and Cover Supervisor Opportunities

Although we do not have any specific vacancies at present we are always interested in meeting people who are looking to return to teaching or working as part of a team covering lessons.

We have a well-established and highly effective team of Cover Supervisors who work closely with our students across all subjects to ensure they maintain their learning in the absence of their regular teacher. The cover team has a wide variety of previous experience and skills which are used across the Academy when not covering lessons. Consequently, every day is different and spent working with a wide range of colleagues and students, making this role particularly interesting. The majority of the team work between 2 and 3 days a week.

From time to time we also need supply teachers to cover longer term absence and for this we draw upon a small pool of teachers who know our systems and expectations. 

Our cover supervisors and supply teachers are extremely adaptable, organised and are able to work calmly often under pressure. They develop a good working knowledge of current ICT packages and digital learning and because of our commitment to developing our staff they regularly engage in a range of training activities. 

Cover and supply staff often find that the experience gained allows them to secure training opportunities (e.g. PGCE) or further advance their careers. 

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

If you would like to visit or have an informal discussion about a future role then please contact Nigel Regan (Assistant Headteacher) at nregan@wardenpark.co.uk or Debbie White (Cover Manager) at dwhite28@wardenpark.co.uk
