We are looking continuouslyfor students interested in working in pupil supervision.

There is high demand in the afternoon. 

The city of Freiburg has contracted Studierendenwerk Freiburg for supervision of secondary school student for the last ten years.

A team of University students looks after secondary school students four to five days a week. Supervision of the secondary students is during lunch, games, sports and other recreational activities. Supervisors form teams that supervise one class and alternate with other teams. This means that students only have to work once or twice a week. If students find themselves sick or unable to work, they need to find a replacement themselves from within the team.

Experience and a fondness of supervising children is a must! (E.g. Proven by previous related experience with children)


We have received very positive feedback from supervisors and secondary students. You will profit from working with students, staff from the school and your team.


This is what we offer:

Training preparation is overseen by the Pedagogic University Freiburg. The compulsory training takes place on Saturday,29.06.2019  from 8.30 to 17.30 h.
