Job Description

New Directions Education are looking to register Foundation Phase specialist teachers to provide relief cover for Nursery/Reception Classes within Swansea primary schools once the schools reopen. As we work with the majority of the schools within Swansea, you will be able to work locally. You will also be able to select if it is the short-term day to day placements you would like, or if you would rather long-term work.

We welcome applicants who:

  • Have gained Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and are registered with the Education Workforce Council (EWC);
  • Have experience of teaching within a Foundation Phase environment and Nursey/Reception classes in particular;
  • Have experience or are able to confidently utilise the outdoor classroom;
  • Are able to promote the ‘Cwricwlwm Cymraeg’ throughout the school and use incidental Welsh when appropriate;
  • Are either Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT’s) or experienced classroom practitioners;

Most schools within the City and County of Swansea are easily accessible via public transport or have parking available. Each school creates a welcoming environment and has a supportive staff network where you will feel part of the team. The schools are seeking regular teachers to cover their Nursery and Reception classes to ensure that the children receive continuity of approach even when their class teacher is away. You will need to be enthusiastic, creative and eager to develop the Foundation Phase departments you work in. New Directions Education will be able to offer free training courses to aid your Career Development and a dedicated Account Manager to work on your behalf. Due to the current climate the majority of the registration process can be completed via telephone and video call.
