Cover Supervisor required for Nottingham-based SEN school.

Your new School

Hays Education are working in partnership with this 'Good' rated, Central Nottingham school and are looking for an experienced Cover Supervisor for the new academic year. The School is looking for someone that has experience in an SEN school and is able to cover for the Class Teacher when required. The school prides itself on its inclusive and welcoming environment, and is looking for someone who will be able to fit into the current team well, and hit the ground running.

Your new role

You will be required to support children with additional needs, such as Autism. You will need to be able to provide cover for the Class Teacher on occasion, and may be required to assist in moving and handling. The role is on a temporary basis from September to July 2020, but for the right candidate, a more permanent role may become available.

What you'll need to succeed

You'll need a passion for teaching, as well as the ability to adapt to different situations. You need to be confident in leading a class when required. You will ideally have experience working with children with Autism, and be able to build rapport with students and teachers. It would be beneficial to have experience in moving and handling. You will ideally have experience with MAPPA and Pecks, but this is not essential. You will be open-minded, creative and hard working.

What you'll get in return

You'll receive competitive rates of pay and holiday rates. You will have the opportunity to work in a rewarding environment, helping students to reach their potential while also developing your skills. You will also have access to a Hays Education Specialist that will act as your one point of contact. In addition, you can refer a friend in exchange for a £250 retail shopping voucher*.
