Coaching for Cover Supervisors

supervisorsThe emphasis on learning over time and the need to make sure that the learning in one lesson dovetails into learning across a sequence of lessons highlights the importance of the Cover Supervisor.

They have a vital role to play in ensuring the smooth running of the school when teachers are absent and are an integral part of the learning process.

This very popular and well received event supports Cover Supervisors to play their part in being a seamless replacement for the teacher allowing the learning to continue bringing positive outcomes for the learner, the regular teacher and the school.

The one day event will include:-

  • The role, responsibilities and needs of the Cover Supervisor - reviewing their impact on learning
  • Classroom and behaviour management and how to manage the learning to ensure progress and impact
  • Looking at some best practice models and resources to support the Cover Supervisor in the classroom
  • Developing a range of coaching skills that will support peer to peer reflection and the sharing and cascading of good and outstanding practice
  • Next steps to ensure positive outcomes for cover lessons using the GROW coaching model
  • Creating opportunities for dialogue, reflection and peer to peer communication can help to ensure that those members of the team who work in the role of Cover Supervisors have the confidence and are equipped with the skills to support the teacher in ensuring the learning is seamless.

Who should attend?

Experienced and new Cover Supervisors will benefit greatly from this profound opportunity to reflect on their practice and grow in their role within the classroom, their team and with their teaching colleagues.

This event will also be useful for those with responsibility for the professional development of Cover Supervisors who can take away a wealth of ideas and resources to undertake this training for groups of Cover Supervisors back in school or across a consortium of schools.
