profile up to scratch.png

Your ClassCover profile is your online CV and it's important that it is treated as such. Maintaining and updating your profile will help you put your best foot forward. Teachers with fully filled out profiles will have an increased chance of being added to new schools via our Find New Teachers feature.

The top 3 profile types schools avoid

The never touched profile - These are the set and forget profiles. The never went back and finished profiles. These profiles will have no information, no picture, no important attachments and certainly no availability updated - they are a sea of HI orange. The thing is, some teachers are actually operating ClassCover this way as they may have one school they regularly get work through. These profiles won’t be seeing much action with other schools however and are at high risk of being put to the bottom of preferred lists.

The abandoned profile - Teachers who fall into this category have failed to update their profile for a few months or longer, and it’s obvious. They will have out of date training certificates, an expired accreditation date, HI (orange) all over their availability calendar (hasn’t indicated) and will repeatedly ignore requests for work (yes, schools can see when you don’t respond - and they do complain).

The almost profile - These profiles are so close! However, they are lacking important information and fail to really market themselves. Unfortunately these profiles won’t be seeing action from new schools either and risk getting put to the bottom of the preferred list by connected schools as teachers with full and updated profiles will stand out more.

So how does your profile stand up?

In the checklist below, count how many items you have

Nice profile!

Your ClassCover profile is impressive and stands out from the crowd. Well done!

Don’t forget about your profile!

It’s likely that once upon a time you were operating ClassCover at full capacity. However you just haven’t been maintaining it lately and you haven’t updated your important information for a while.

Schools can see this and they order their preferred lists accordingly.

To ensure you stay on a school’s list and also get put on new school lists in your local area, upload and update all out of date items mentioned in the quiz. Schools like to see ‘active’ teachers and you can show them that you are via your profile. You will most likely see new schools adding you too.

Once you have completed your profile, remember to check back over time to make sure you always have the most up to date information (registration number, accreditation, training certificates etc) and always remember to update your availability weekly for schools to see. 

 
You scored between 0 - 4 (and you haven’t even uploaded or entered any info that could be out of date)

Your profile needs some attention...

It’s probably safe to say that you haven’t done much to your profile since signing up. You may have a school you work with regularly and you’re on their list so you may have thought you don’t need to worry? Wrong. Schools are looking for teachers with the most up to date information and periodically check teachers accreditation and registration expiry.  

To ensure you stay on a school’s list and also get put on new school’s lists in your local area, upload all the remaining items as mentioned in the quiz and your profile will be spotless which will lead to more bookings.
