I'm looking for a cover teacher to work across primary schools in Crawley, so if this role interests you then please keep reading!

Randstad currently works in a long-standing partnership with the primary schools in the Crawley area, supporting them with their day-to-day, longer term and permanent cover. This means that through working with Randstad you will have access to roles in the area that are exclusive to us. Each school in the area is unique, ranging from half form to four form, village schools to academy trusts, every school is different and we will support you to find your perfect fit! Due to the outbreak of covid-19 all teachers will be assigned to a supply bubble based on your local area to limit the potential spread of the virus.

The role of a cover teacher is an important one. It involves confidently working to a different set plan each day to continue raising the attainment of each child in their class teacher's absence. Each week you will update your availability for work and then, using our bookings app, you can then accept the roles that work best for you. This is an extremely rewarding role which opens up multiple opportunities for either regular work in your preferred schools or permanent opportunities when they become available. Through cover teaching you can explore all avenues so that if the time comes to choose a permanent role you have an insight into each school's ethos and values, staff support and atmosphere before making a decision, or you may choose cover teaching as your career, which is often the case.
