NQT Support Programme

Welcome to New Directions

Our NQT Support Programme will provide you with a designated NQT Consultant. Their role is to work with you and your account manager, to secure you your perfect teaching job, support your CPD (Continuous Professional Development) and help guide you through completing your induction period whilst on supply.

Having been an integral part of the education sector for 25 years, we have built strong relationships with schools. We look to offer the widest choice of primary and secondary schools across Wales and the North West.

We understand that everyone is different, and that your ethos, teaching style and desired school are unique. We pride ourselves in getting to know everyone individually to ensure you are suitably placed.
