Use our questions when recruiting for a cover supervisor, and adapt them to fit your school's needs. If you're adding questions, think about:

  • What's in the job description and person specification, so you know what skills you want candidates to demonstrate
  • Any unique challenges in your school that the person would need certain skills to handle
  • Any skills gaps you've had with past cover supervisors that you'd like to avoid
