Job Description

New Directions are looking for Teaching Assistants for a variety of roles within Secondary Schools and Special Educational Needs settings in the Shropshire area.

Dealing with a range vacancies including short and long-term and full and part-time assignments we have a pressing need to recruit for local staff with experience of working with children.

The ideal candidate(s) will have experience of working within a school setting, however applicants who have experience of dealing with children in a different environment will also be considered for the roles we have available. Experience of dealing with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities including those with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs is a particular advantage.

Due to the variety of roles that we can deal with, whether you are looking full time, long term assignments or occasional ad-hoc work we could have roles suited to you. Working on supply can also offer you a flexibility that you will not be able to find in a contracted position.
