Cover Supervisor Training

What is Cover Supervisor Training and who should do it?

Our Cover Supervisor Training was designed specially by us following feedback from our cover supervisors.

The training package is tailored for cover supervisors who are looking to take the next step in their career and eventually undertake a PGCE or similar teacher training course. The training offers participants the opportunity to develop their classroom management skills and gives them the tools they need to think on their feet in situations where no classwork has been set.

The training is suitable for anyone who is considering work or currently working as a cover supervisor. To learn more about the role of a cover supervisor and what is required, look at our blog: Could you be a cover supervisor?

We also recommend taking a look at Q&As with current Smile cover supervisors Louise Dance and Shaik Ahmed.
