Job Description

New Directions Education are currently registering Final Year Students for potential supply placements. We will be able to provide you with placements as an Unqualified Teacher, which allows you to get straight into the classroom as soon as you finish your course. Undertaking supply positions as soon as you complete your course allows you to get a feel of working in different schools.

These placements also allow schools to trial staff for upcoming placements they will have in the academic year. As soon as you receive your certificates we will be able to place you as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT).  We are looking for candidates with strength of character, versatility, and enthusiasm. As New Directions Education has been awarded the Preferred Supplier for supply staff in Carmarthenshire, we are able to offer full time and part time positions.
