Can I use a mobile while supervising a learner driver?

No. Not even to text.

3) No person shall supervise a holder of a provisional licence if the person supervising is using –

(a) a hand-held mobile telephone; or

(b) a hand-held device of a kind specified in paragraph (4),

at a time when the provisional licence holder is driving a motor vehicle on a road.

(4) A device referred to in paragraphs (1)(b), (2)(b) and (3)(b) is a device, other than a two-way radio, which performs an interactive communication function by transmitting and receiving data.

    As long as you don’t hold it you’re OK. You still have to be paying as much (more) attention to the road and to what the learner’s doing as you would normally though. If you’re seen by the police obviously (or even slightly potentially) not giving your FULL attention then you’re in trouble.
