Leeds West Academy is an over-subscribed 11-18 school. Thriving in a state of the art building with stunning views over the River Aire, our Academy is committed to delivering an outstanding education to each and every one of our students. We provide exceptional life training; harnessing the skills and fortifying the aspirations of young people, who we know will transform the region and provide a positive, progressive contribution to society. Our vision at Leeds West Academy is clear: we will be Ofsted rated as outstanding within three years.


The White Rose Academies Trust is a local trust dedicated to raising and fulfilling the ambitions of young people. Our academies throughout Leeds are at the heart of the communities they serve, which is why we are committed to delivering an outstanding education to every one of our students.


We are looking for an enthusiastic and organised Cover Supervisor to join our passionate team of staff, who are committed to ensuring all students continue to achieve beyond their potential.  This is not a teaching position but the Cover Supervisor is expected to ensure that students remain on task and complete work to the best of their ability. A substantial part of the role will be the delivery of work which is set for students in the case of their usual teacher’s absence.


The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, confident. adaptable and well-organised and share the school’s commitment to helping all students achieve their potential. They will also need to have had some experience of working with young people, preferably in education.


The Trust employs over 370 outstanding professionals who are committed to unlocking the potential of the next generation. Our CPD Programme is focused on Innovation, Leadership Development and delivery of excellence for vulnerable groups.  Our Beginner Teacher Programme is amongst the best in the region.  We are on a significant journey which will see all of our schools Ofsted rated as outstanding within three years.


We benefit hugely from our sponsor, Luminate Education Group, which is one of the largest and most successful FE/HE College Groups in the UK.   Our sponsor provides leadership and operational support and advice to all our Academies.  They also share our vision of creating a truly Outstanding Trust.


As a Trust, we also work very closely with the Outstanding GORSE Academies Trust through our membership of the GORSE SCITT and via accessing the Stephen Longfellow Academy Provision.
