Job Description

New Directions Education are seeking Higher Level Teaching Assistant’s to support local schools in the Vale of Glamorgan with their supply requirements.

New Directions have built excellent relationships with schools in the Vale of Glamorgan, and they require HLTA’s to cover across the Primary age range to cover staff absences. As a HLTA you will be expected to support the class teacher and also help with group learning, as well as occasionally leading learning.

Supply work is a dynamic, exciting role with an opportunity to manage your own diary. This is a fantastic opportunity to build relationships with local schools, and you will work closely with your account manager to find schools that fit your ethos.

New Directions also support schools with medium and long-term cover. Longer term placements often arise from building relationships on short-term supply, or New Directions recruit specifically for placements. All supply placements are specifically requested by the schools, so can vary.

New Directions offer free training to support your continuous professional development, including free online webinars covering a range of topics including British Sign Language, Mental Health, Mindfulness and Adverse Childhood Experiences.
