job description

Do you have experience working with children?
Would you like to work 3-5 days per week in local secondary schools?
Would time in the classroom be the catalyst you need to move your career to the next level?

Randstad can offer the right candidate a great opportunity to schedule their work around other commitments and preserve their work-life balance! Working very closely with a number of schools in the Blackburn area, we constantly need classroom supervisors to cover absences.

Cover supervisors must be able to work on a casual, ad hoc basis, covering lessons and year groups as and when teachers are absent. Cover Supervisors deliver pre-set work, which absent teachers have set in order to ensure that students in their classes will continue to learn and be productive throughout the school day.


*Flexible work shifts
*An opportunity to build strong links with the wider community
*Facilities are new, modern and complete
*A broad curriculum which allows students to make informed choices, while at the same time receiving effective advice about careers and higher education options

Responsibilities will include:

*Communicating with peers and colleagues in order to make sure work is delivered and completed thoroughly and on time by pupils in your charge
*Thinking quickly and being adaptable and flexible in order to overcome obstacles
*Having excellent organisational and communication skills, with an eye for detail
*Exuding a passion for learning and a driving ambition for every learner to progress


*Degree-educated or equivalent
*Previous experience of working or volunteering with children in an education-style setting
*An ability to confidently address classes of pupils and individuals regarding cover work and behaviour

The school are looking for cover supervisors with a can-do attitude to match the school's aspirations. If you match the above criteria, then this role could be perfect for you! Please apply as soon as possible or you will run the risk of missing out on this excellent opportunity.
