Job Description

New Directions Education are working with local schools in the Tonypandy area and seeking dedicated, flexible teachers for supply cover. Teachers are required to cover PPA, sickness and course cover in local schools across all Key Stages. Our schools pride themselves on providing a nurturing environment for children where learning and development for all abilities is at the centre of school life. Teachers with experience in the local area would be at an advantage but our schools are welcoming to new teachers and keen to build relationships. Supply teaching can offer flexible and rewarding work for teachers without the stresses of planning, however if candidates are seeking a long term position with the full responsibilities it is a great place to start.

Candidates must be fully EWC registered and be able to provide referees that can comment on their teaching ability. NQTs are welcome to apply and encouraged to build rapport with schools to create future employment opportunities. You will work with a dedicated account manager with great knowledge of the local area and have the opportunity to be entered into our guaranteed work scheme. We also offer loyalty bonuses where candidates can get up to £500 over the summer period.
