Kirsty is efficient, helpful and communicative. I am glad to have her help with scheduling and booking my placements as it has made working a lot easier and hassle-free. I enjoy working with children, so am pretty satisfied with the work itself. Besides that, the staff at New Directions are warm and friendly.

Shanila Teaching Assistant

It's been incredible working with New Directions the last couple of months, the contact and information that had been given to me has always been efficient and straight forward. It's given me frequency. Communications have been great, the online portal has been great. I just want to thank New Directions for all the support I have received.

Mellissa Teaching Assistant

Kirsty has been so approachable and professional in all contact, I have felt supported and heard during the time I have been working with her. Any problems I have had, which have been nothing major, have been dealt with quickly and in a manner that leaves me feeling like I am in good hands and supported. I feel strongly that…

Katie Teaching Assistant

Kirsty has been great and kept in regular contact with me regarding opportunities and kept in check with me regularly. Having the opportunity to work with different schools and meet new people has been my highlight and hopefully, after the Summer and my experience with New Directions I can get a full-time position in a school.

Ebony Teaching Assistant

Kirsty has always been very polite, professional and easy to speak to. Always available to help with any questions. If at any time Kirsty is unavailable, other staff are always happy to take a message to pass on to Kirsty for me or to help if needed. I've enjoyed my time working with New Directions.
