KJIA is an 11-18 Academy located in the centre of Bishop Auckland; a market town surrounded by the Durham Dales, a short journey from the coast, and with excellent transport links via road and rail to other major regional towns and cities, including Durham, Darlington, Newcastle and Sunderland.

We are seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to supervise planned lessons for teaching colleagues in their absence, and provide in-class learning support within an identified curriculum area. The successful candidate will focus upon giving students opportunities for success both within and beyond the classroom as well as providing stimulating and engaging learning experiences.

Working at King James I Academy will provide the opportunity to join a dedicated and highly valued team of staff who are “proud to work at the school” (Ofsted 2022), and whose mission is to become an outstanding academy that develops successful, well rounded, socially mobile and confident young people who can contribute effectively to the global community.

Our excellent teaching and support staff help students to achieve positive progress and to follow a varied and challenging curriculum. Students in our Sixth Form in 2023 achieved very strong outcomes and all have now moved on to University, Training or employment.

The school currently operates as a standalone 11-18 Academy, (although will join the Eden Learning Trust on 1st December 2023) and has benefitted from the PSBP programme; enabling a move to state-of-the-art facilities. Student recruitment is consistently strong and the Academy has been oversubscribed in Year 7 for each of the last 5 years, with KS5 numbers also increasing. The Academy was inspected by Ofsted in February 2022 and continues to be judged as ‘Good’.

The successful candidate will be supported through a bespoke induction programme as well as being given opportunities and support for further career and professional development during their time at the Academy.

Closing Date: 12pm on Monday 27th November

Interview Date: W.B. 27th November
