I have worked as a Teacher specialising in Mathematics and Physical Education (PE) for over 41 years, in this time I have worked with students of varying ages from University to Primary schools in both the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA).
My positions have always been permanent and long term, however upon my return to the UK, I decided to use an agency for some supply teaching.
I registered with New Directions Education in Manchester, having had a professional orientation, I filled in the forms and then waited for work via my Account Manager.
The phone has never stopped ringing! I have been provided with work whenever I have been available. New Directions has kept me very busy, this has exceeded my expectations of the company.
I would like to thank the team for finding me regular work and I would certainly recommend my Account Manager and New Directions as an agency for the supply of teachers.
