Our Latest Testimonial
Having started my role as a cover supervisor in February 2017, I have nothing but praise and high recommendation for Matt and the staff at New Directions. They have been hugely supportive throughout and in regular contact. The role is flexible and the team offers a number of courses to provide additional confidence in working in a classroom environment and dealing with classroom behaviour. Matt is also an experienced teaching practitioner who can offer great advice and support for anyone wishing to enter the teaching profession, and the experience gained working as a cover supervisor is invaluable in helping gain a place on a teacher training programme and in providing excellent experience of the reality of teaching. Overall my experience working with Matt and the team at New Directions has given me a great grounding from which to begin my teaching career. Thanks again Matt Jon
