Our Latest Testimonial
I have enjoyed working for New Directions for the past three years, it has given me a great experience of working in different schools within a range of year groups and has increased my confidence.
New Directions try their best to get me work in advance which I prefer and always seem happy to make enquiries for me to ensure I have all the information I need before I go to a new school.
New directions try their best to put me in schools and year groups that I enjoy working in and always check with me before booking me into a different work place. They listen to my views and opinions which makes me feel valued and part of a team.
I have had a number of consultants finding me work and I must say that my current Account Manager goes above and beyond, he keeps me in the loop and try’s to have a catch up with me so we both know what is happening, whether this relates specifically to the schools I am going into or just to check how I am, this especially helped recently as I had a family crisis. He made sure I had any days off that I needed and this gave me one less thing to worry about.
I would like to take this opportunity to say that New Directions are a great company to work for and I would recommend them as an agency for anyone looking to work as a supply teacher.
