ClassCover has just launched shareable Teacher Portfolios, allowing you to build out your career portfolio via your ClassCover profile and switch your profile to live to share with schools and other potential employers to see.
Here you can showcase your work history, teaching levels, subjects, skills, and attributes. These new additions are now available for you to fill out and update via your ClassCover profile.
You can use your shareable teacher portfolio link in your CV when applying for work in schools. Schools can then find you on ClassCover and add you to their regular booking list.
Your teacher portfolio is a way for you to show yourself off, be found, booked and employed, and acts as an online resume. Schools don’t have to be logged into ClassCover to be able to view your Teacher Portfolio.
👍 Good to know: Personal information, references and files are not shared on the public portfolio page. Schools who are logged in are able to view your full profile as usual.
💡 Top tip: Make sure you have your profile switched on to ‘Viewable to schools’ so that schools can connect directly to you from your profile. You can find this in your settings on the web version of ClassCover.
Turning this feature on is optional
Schools will soon be getting a massive over-haul to the centralised school calendar. Not only are we improving the design, but are adding in improved functionality to make your job more efficient.
Daily bookings with list view
You will be able to click on a day and get a list view of all incoming teaching staff, which includes all high level information at a glance, with the ability to click on individual bookings to see more.
This is a hugely requested feature and will be useful for larger schools who can have over 15 casual staff booked for the day.
Bulk delete recurring bookings
If you have booked in a teacher for block work on multiple dates through the pre-confirmed booking option, you will soon be able to bulk delete the series if you need to.
Teachers, your calendar will soon be getting a massive make-over with improved functionality that will keep you more organised than ever before.
Besides a cleaner design, the following features will soon be available to you.
You will soon be able to add external bookings to your calendar if you are booked by a school outside of ClassCover. This gives you the ability to use your ClassCover booking calendar as the one source of truth to keep you organised. This will save you from managing several calendars so you can be across what your month looks like.
Recurring availability updater
We want to make it easy for you to update your availability ahead of time. If you know that you are available or unavailable for work on a consistent day or days throughout the year, then you can soon update your availability in a recurring way for the whole year, month or term!
The flexibility and ease of use with this feature will save you time and turn the task of updating your availability in bulk for a selected period into a simple action.
Teachers will soon receive more information around booking requests on both Push Noticiation and SMS.
This will allow you to see if you are the only one who the job has been sent to or one of many. You will also see how long you have to respond to the booking request before it gets sent to the next teacher on the list if the booking was sent in priority order.
Providing transparency around booking requests has been designed in order to alleviate some of the anxiety faced by teachers when accepting bookings on ClassCover.
Watch this space
Schools will be able to showcase important information about their school in the soon to be released ‘school profiles’.
There will be two versions available for teachers to see. Teachers who are considering applying for work at your school and will see high-level information such as school size, school type, contact info so teachers interested can reach out, your location on a map and any recent job posts from your school.
Teachers who are on your list will see a more in-depth profile with information such as school onboarding links and PDFs, recent school announcements and any other additional information you would like to include for your teachers to see.
We will have more features and updates to add to this page such as endorsements that teachers can recommend your school for and more additions and enhancements to school onboarding - stay tuned!
We have been working on a new page for teachers that centralises all important information in the one place and is now your new homepage.
Your new teacher dashboard showcases:
Your dashboard is viewable in the web version of ClassCover. We will be releasing the dashboard on both iOS and Android apps soon!
