What To Expect As A Cover Supervisor:

Here they will check your ID and DBS, as well as induct you briefly through H&S and Behaviour Policies. Most schools will have a Supply Pack to give you, so please feel free to ask for this! They will give you your plan and timetable for the day as well as take you to the department of your first lesson and introduce you.
