How many Cover supervisers does it take to change a light bulb?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by carlwan, May 11, 2011.

  1. How Many cover supervisers does it take to change a light bulb?

    Atleast two (and a qualified teacher)-The first one can climb the ladder, the second can hold it, and the qualified teacher can supervise as he/she is qualified to be in the classroom lol.[​IMG]
     
  2. Where I've worked they've done without the qualified teacher, so the ( and a qualified teacher ) part may be ignored.
     
  3. The teacher does not have to be in the classroom to supervise.

    Actually, thinking about it seriously - You'd need to replace the CEO of General Electric with a Cover Supervisor, because let's face it, you wouldn't need proper experience or qualifications to do that, and Cover Supervisors are cheaper and they know the light bulbs. Then you could kick General Electric's product development staff out and replace them with Cover Supervisors because they've done so many 'design a poster' lessons they could oversee the design of anything by now. Then General Electric's Production Manager could be replaced by a Cover Supervisor because they have so much experience of getting to the right room at the right time and doing lessons with minimal resources, so that would cut back on material costs. Then a Cover Supervisor could become General Electric's Marketing Manager because (you've guessed it) they've done all those 'design an advert for' lessons haven't they? Finally, with the new management team in place they could replace the Human Resources Manager with a Cover Supervisor because Cover Supervisors know the kids so they have all the necessary people skills. The new HR manager would then recruit only Cover Supervisors to run General Electric.

    Cover Supervisors would then be in complete control of worldwide light bulb production and distribution, so the answer to the original question (based on General Electric's current staffing) is around 287,000.

    ..and at the lousy rates they pay for Cover Supervisor work, lightbulbs could then be sold for only a few pence each ;-)
     
  10. Lol. Then they could train the next generations of electricians-surely they must remember OHM's law from Physics lessons? Plus the bonus being they dont need to be qualified to teach.
