Testimonials - Candidate

I registered with New Directions 9 months ago with no school experience. I was trying to gain experience in order to find a permanent job that worked around my child care needs. In this time, the ladies in the Support Services department have placed me in a number of positions and I have gained SIMS experience. My latest position has now led me to be offered a permanent contract, which is down the road from where I live and fits around my children. I cannot thank you enough for all the help and support you have given me. If it wasn’t for New Directions and the wonderful people who work there I would never of found my perfect job. #couldntbehappier

Victoria, School Administrator in Cardiff

My account manager has been a fantastic support through my first year of teaching. As a newly qualified teacher, the prospect of supply work seemed extremely daunting but she has been incredibly helpful and uplifting. She has been someone I can always rely on and talk openly with and always goes the extra mile to stay in touch and deliver extra information about schools I have worked in.

Working with New Directions has given me the opportunity to teach in a range of settings and to grow in confidence as a teacher. I have loved teaching different year groups in different schools throughout the year.

As I have just got my first teaching job I would just like to say I will really miss New Directions and if I ever find myself in need of supply work again I will be sure to head straight back to them.

LD, Primary Teacher, Caerphilly

From my first contract at new directions I found a very professional whilst caring atmosphere, putting me at ease, relating information in a clear and understandable manner, my dealings with my account manager and all the team in new direction branch in Wrexham have been positive ones I feel very happy to work with a company and team that have such a good outlook towards their staff and clients, seven months on from my starting date still find it to be so.

New Directions is a great company to work for, and my account manager is ideal. She is always friendly and professional and understands exactly the time I can offer and the schools I prefer. She always answers the phone or phones back and she is always cheerful. She has also built a good relationship with the schools, which makes going in on supply much easier. Thanks. Janet.

Denbighshire Teaching Assistant

When I attended my interview I was made to feel very welcome by my account manager and the other staff I came in contact with. I was given all the information I would need about joining New Directions, the process was explained clearly and my questions answered well.

I was contacted by phone on a regular basis to update me on my application and when a position became available she went through the details of the role and once again answered my questions.
Since starting the position I have received emails and text messages about courses and work opportunities. I have also been visited by my account manager at school.
I have now secured a full time position at the school

Just a message to inform you that I have been very happy with the way I have been treated by yourself and New Directions. I feel I have had plenty of support and guidance from the time I have started with the Company. Everyone is very friendly and approachable whenever I have spoken to them on the phone and I look forward to working with you in the new term.

Denbighshire Teaching Assistant

I joined New Directions after a school placement recommended them to me.  They have given me a great opportunity to expand on my experience as an NQT and develop my skills in order gain a permanent role from September.  I cannot thank you enough for all you help and I doubt I would have secured the permanent role without the help of my account manager and the team.

Hayley, Primary Teacher

I would like to thank the team at New Directions Liverpool office for all their support they have provided since me starting with them back in May 2015.  They found me a long term placement within a few weeks of starting and I have been at the same school since then.  They girls are very friendly and often call to ask how I am getting on at school.  Would I recommend New Directions Education?  Yes definitely.

Chris, Teaching Assistant

New Directions are a brilliant agency to work for. Their staff have given me numerous opportunities to widen my experiences within the childcare sector. They are always polite and respectful when contacting me.  I have now done lots of work all over Cardiff and gained great hands-on experience within special needs schools and I’ve also carried out various 1:1 work- all thanks to New Directions.

When allocating me work, New Directions kept me as local as possible which was very helpful because I didn’t have a car when I first started with the company, My Account manager always gives me feedback that she’s received from schools that I’ve worked in and this has been a lovely confidence boost. It has helped to make me feel a valued member of the team.

I would definitely recommend this agency and would always speak highly of it to my friends. New Directions has helped me to improve my CV through all the work they have provided me with which will then benefit my future job prospects and hopefully help me find permanent work.

Many thanks to the all New Directions team and my account manager – very much appreciated.
