Job Description

I am looking to recruit experienced and enthusiastic Teaching Assistants to work on a supply basis in primary schools across Conwy.

The roles I have available are due to start in the new academic year, and they can be on a full or part time basis. Hours are usually between 08.45/9.00an -3.00/3.30pm, or the morning and afternoon shifts are usually between 08.45/9.00am -12.00pm or 1.00pm-3.00/3.30pm. You are able to state your preferred hours/days of work, which may vary for you weekly.

We have day to day and long term opportunities available, and if you are looking for a permanent role within a school, supply is a great way to build relationships with schools/their pupils and hopefully lead you to that perfect permanent role.

New Directions also offers free online training which can include Autism Awareness and Safeguarding Awareness.
