Cover Teacher NeededRamsgate, East Kent£70-£180 Per Day Depending on experience

Cover Staff (Teachers and Cover Supervisors) provide a vital service to schools during times of need but the role may not be what you think. Schools in Kent are currently in need of cover specialists for roles with students aged 11 - 18. Read on if you want to know a little more.

Being a Cover Teacher means:

  • Ultimate flexibility in working hours / days meaning greater work life balance
  • Variety in your work across a range of schools
  • Good rates of pay comparable to permanent teaching
  • No work to take home and more time to spend with your family
  • Support from a trained and experienced consultant

Being a cover teacher means moulding a job to suit your needs. You could opt for greater flexibility and variety taking daily and weekly placements. You could take only short blocks of subject specialist cover or you could become a long-term specialist covering maternity or similar assignments in your specialist subject.

Pay rates are flexible, you can choose your days and you can be as selective as you need to be on location and schools you would like to work in. We support schools across Thanet and Canterbury and right across Kent to Dartford and Tunbridge Wells.

In order to qualify as a cover teacher or cover supervisor you will need:

  • A DBS or be willing to undertake a new DBS
  • Permission to work in the UK
  • Qualifications or experience relating to teaching work
  • Good references showing classroom work
