"Maths cover supervisor"???

    So what's going on here?

    Surely if you are "supervising" classes, there is no need to have any specialist knowledge - the work being set should be possible to complete without the need for any intervention, teaching, or explanation.

    After all, you are only "supervising", not imparting knowledge.

    If there is a need for specialist knowledge in the role, then surely that suggests that teaching will be taking place - explaining new concepts, directing children who are struggling and offering feedback on work completed.

    Can anybody shed some light on my question?

    Seeing these types of job adverts on a far too regular basis now, sadly. It’s just ridiculous really. Saw one recently for a degree qualified LSA and yep, the job description was that of a teacher but for a TA wage. It just makes one despair.
