New Directions Education are proud to be working alongside the largest schools in the Caerphilly area and are recruiting on their behalf, NQT’s to work on a supply basis. As one of the preferred suppliers in the area, New Directions are seeking Newly Qualified Teacher’s to work in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes either on a day to day supply basis (which will still contribute to your NQT hours) or on a long-term basis which could lead to a permanent contract. Daily supply for an NQT is great as you get to experience a variety of schools, get to know their ethos and will help you decide on where you would like to work in the future.
At New Directions, we care about the schools and offer a variety of free training to staff as well as the children. We recently hosted the World’s Largest British Sign Language lesson with over 3,500 attendee’s breaking a world record! We also offer free first Aid lessons and British Sign Language lessons to Key Stage 2 children and we can also provide a free inflatable penalty shoot out to schools to assist with fundraising incentives. We also run regular webinars for school staff and senior leadership teams on various topics such as the new curriculum, mindfulness and wellbeing and motivating your team with guest speaker and Wales and British and Irish Lions rugby player, Ryan Jones. Our Account Managers also enjoys getting stuck in and will often volunteer to help with various activities within the schools.
New Directions is also committed to your learning and development and offer a variety of online courses which are accredited and a certified. During the half term breaks, we host a variety of free webinars which is open to all candidates. These include Incidental Welsh, Mindfulness and Well-being, Assessment for Learning plus many more. When it is safe to do so, we will revert back to providing essential on-site training such as Team Teach, First Aid and British Sign Language delivered by well recognized professionals in our brand new Llanishen office.
This Summer, we are launching our new and exciting NQT support programme!
