  • Are able to plan and delegate activities for the support staff within the classroom to undertake;
  • Can confidently liaise with staff, pupils and parents;
  • Seek the flexibility of supply work and are suited towards the temporary nature of placements.

We are looking for applicants who would like the flexibility of supply work and who would be available at times at short notice to fulfil last minute sickness absences. You would need to be able to adapt to each age group within the Foundation Phase and be able to work closely with the teaching and support staff in order to provide continuity of approach for activities. All schools have a range of resources you could utilise within the Foundation Phase Department and adapt to future classes. New Directions will also be able to support you through providing free in house and online training courses, guaranteed payment schemes and a personal account manager.
