New Directions Education are currently seeking teachers who would be able to cover time set aside for Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) within Swansea primary schools. All PPA sessions would be within Foundation Phase Departments and so Foundation Phase specialists would be encouraged to apply. New Directions Education are seeking teachers who would be able to cover these sessions when their PPA teachers are away from the classroom and so all positions are on a supply basis.
