  • Administer (and mark) class tests
  • Supervise the work of the teaching assistant
  • Abide by and work towards all the policies within the school e.g. behaviour management, Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities
  • Carry out the above duties in accordance with the Children’s Services Department’s Equal Opportunities Policy.

What New Directions Education offers:

  • A dedicated and expert Account Manager
