On Tuesday 16th February, Sophie Bevan and Shannon Mash from New Directions Education attended the Bangor Jobs Fair to meet and recruit NQT’s that are qualifying to teach this summer. An impressive 136 NQT’s were registered at the event, 48 of which were Welsh speakers.
The team said, “It was fantastic to meet all the NQT’s at the Bangor Jobs Fair. It was a well-managed, successful event and we look forward to registering the teachers of the future.”
During the event, everyone that registered was entered into a free prize draw to win an Amazon Firestick. We are delighted to announce that the lucky winner is Esme Kendrick, a final year student who has been on her teaching practice in Bryn Deva Primary School in Connahs Quay in the Foundation Phase. Sophie and Shannon visited Esme at the school where they presented her with her prize.
Esme commented, “New Directions staff stood out to me at the Bangor jobs fair. The staff were very approachable and knowledgeable and when I came away from the fair the only agency I could remember was New Directions. Thank you for the opportunity to sign up to the agency and for the Firestick.”
