    How do I authorise my timesheet?

    On registration you will be given login details for our online diary and timesheet system.

  • Q

    Returning to teaching?

    If you hold qualified teacher status, you can return to teaching in either a permanent or supply role at any time. There is currently no requirement for you to complete any formal training. However, if you have been out of the profession for more than 5 years, we would advise you to look at the available refresher courses which can be found of the DfE website.

  • Q

    Can I complete my induction year whilst working on supply?

    Yes. Under the current regulations, NQT's are able to complete their induction over 3 separate assignments in different schools, provided each is for a full term or more. If you are keen to complete your induction while on supply, Class Cover will work closely with you and ensure we find you a role in a school that will be able to provide you with the support you need.

    You may work on a short-term supply basis for up to 5 years from the date you obtained QTS. Once 5 years has elapsed, you may only accept a teaching post which will count towards your induction.
