Link3 are recruiting for motivated individuals who have an interest or passion for Education & Teaching; Candidates are required to work as Cover Supervisors across a variety of Schools and Academies in Nottinghamshire.

So what is a cover supervisor? A cover supervisor is a member of staff who covers teachers’ non-contact time by supervising a variety classes. A cover supervisor’s main job is to manage the classroom behaviour and ensure that students remain on task with the work they have been set.

Cover supervisors are often highly qualified and may even have QTS but this is NOT essential.

Discussing and debating texts with pupils and answering questions

Differentiating and allocating extension exercises
