Castleford Academy Trust

Graduate Cover Supervisor/HLTA

28.75 hours per week – Term time only

Grade 6 FTE £22,183 – £24,982 (Actual Starting Salary £14,544)

We require a confident person who can relate well to students and is committed to supporting teaching and learning. Previous classroom experience is preferred but not essential.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Good literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Motivation and flexibility to work across departments and have a real passion for working with young adults at secondary school age.
  • Behaviour Management skills.
  • Effective organisation and communication skills.
  • Will have good communication skills with the ability to work on your own initiative, but also be able to work flexibly as part of a team.

The post holder will be responsible to the Cover Manager.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate who is an aspirational teacher of the future as there is no better experience to get you ready for a role in education. Leading lessons in the absence of a classroom teacher will enable the candidate to get a real feel for what it is like being an educator and enable then to gain ideal experience to set you up ready for a future in teaching and/or to support a PGCE application.

We are able to offer staff a secure, supportive environment with continuous professional development.   If you have the vision and drive for excellence and want to join a partnership where relationships for learning are fundamental to their continued success we would be delighted to hear from you.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. You will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure.

Headteacher : Mr Peter Walker
