Job Description

New Directions are currently recruiting Teaching Assistants to work in local Primary and Secondary schools. We can provide long-term contracts as well as flexible, day-to-day bookings.  

Ideally you will have experience in a classroom setting, working with students as a general Teaching Assistant, or in small groups/1-1 support. SEN experience is also a benefit as we regularly have SEN specific bookings in both mainstream and special schools.  

If you are looking to open doors to new schools with the goal of finding a permanent contract or wanting the flexibility of working around your schedule with short-term supply, this is an excellent opportunity for you.  

Those looking to start their journey within education are also encouraged to apply as we have Trainee Teaching Assistant positions available in multiple schools.
