Jersey's education department is looking for people to take on the role of lunchtime supervisor in schools.

In July 2010, after threats of a strike, an agreement was reached that changed the conditions of teachers' jobs.

From 1 January 2012 teachers will not have to supervise lunch in primary and secondary schools.

The department is now hoping parents may want to help for up to five hours a week in a school.

They will have to have an enhanced police record check to qualify and will be given professional training.

There are about 100 lunchtime supervisors working in Jersey schools at the moment.

Denise Drieu, of the education department, said it was a great way to start working in childcare.
