New Directions Education are now accepting CV’s and applications for the post of cover supervisor. We have supplied cover supervisors across the whole of Cheshire West, Chester and the Wirral and are now looking to recruit and replenish our team for this busy summer term and September.

What qualifications or experience do I need?
