A wonderful primary school in Wigan has just started working with New Directions!
This amazing school are currently looking for Teaching Assistants to work within their friendly team. The school has a great reputation and puts a warm community feel at the heart of its values. Staff are always happy to help and are very approachable.
Students are encouraged to develop their learning through a hands-on approach. The support that the staff in this school gives to the children, allows its students to achieve their maximum potential and gives them a smooth transition from primary to secondary school.

This is a great opportunity to work within a lovely school, so get in touch to hear more info!
New Directions also works with people with various experiences of working within teams or with children, to allow them their first step towards working in schools. So, if you want to take the jump into education, we would love to hear from you!
