This post is covered by the Childcare Disqualification Regulations 2018.  

The school will need to ensure that they are not knowingly employing a person who is disqualified under the 2018 Regulations in connection with relevant childcare provision.  Accordingly, the successful candidate will be required to demonstrate to the school, by completing a self-declaration form as part of the pre-employment checks process, that they have not been disqualified under the 2018 Regulations.  

If the preferred candidate is found to be disqualified under the 2018 Regulations, the offer of employment will be subject to the application by the preferred candidate to Ofsted for a waiver and the receipt of a waiver from Ofsted. 

Rye College is seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor on a one-year fixed term contract. This is a new position created with the aim of increasing the quality of cover lessons and supporting our teaching staff by adding capacity to the school. We are driven by a pursuit of high academic standards regardless of background and a desire for all students to experience an exceptional education.   

This role would suit perfectly a somebody that holds a degree and is interested in the teaching profession, or wishes to learn more about teaching before committing to further education. Success throughout the fixed term contract could lead to a fully paid route into becoming a qualified teacher (or to a permanent Cover Supervisor position). This position will be paid all-year on the Unqualified Teacher salary range, meaning the successful candidate will be fully paid throughout all school holidays.  

We welcome applicants with or without experience working in schools, and full training will be provided to the successful candidate.  

Our ideal candidate will: 

  • Be interested in teaching and willing to learn a new role; 
  • Understand the importance of community within a small secondary school; 
  • Be enthusiastic, energetic and open to innovation; 
  • Possess effective communication skills and be emotionally intelligent; 
  • Possess effective ICT skills and be open to new uses of technology in the workplace; 
  • Be committed to extra-curricular activities including lunch time activities; 
  • Be committed to continuing professional learning; 
  • Be able to show confidence when managing behaviour; 
  • Have integrity, optimism and a good sense of humour; 
  • Hold a good honours degree. 

In return, we offer: 

  • A happy community committed to the professional development of all colleagues
  • A distinctive local context ensuring we place inclusivity at the heart of all we do;  
  • • A motivated leadership team leading rapid improvement to the students’ life chances 
  • The opportunity to progress your career directly into being a qualified Teacher, without paying to train 
  • A college in which the students are enthusiastic, engaging and thoughtful; 
  • 13 weeks ‘off-site’ time during school holidays; 
  • 23.6% employer pension contributions. 

We would be pleased to welcome you for an informal visit to our school prior to application.
