New Directions Education has been embedded within the supply teaching community since 1999. In that time we have filled over 1,000,000 days of supply cover.
We have been recognised this year with a ‘Supplier of the Year’ award at the Welsh Procurement Awards. We are proud that our supply staff are being celebrated by the wider business community and recognised as a fundamental part of schools and colleges across Wales.
Our pledge(s) this National Supply Teacher Week includes:
· To show appreciation for those working as supply teachers
On June 19th we will be hosting our annual Inspirational Teaching Awards where we recognise the efforts from supply staff across the education community in Wales. We want to celebrate the contribution supply teachers make towards the success of our schools and colleges.
· To support supply teachers with their professional development
Our in-house training team has continued to deliver training to supply staff across the UK throughout 2015. We are committed to supporting CPD for supply staff; this year we have extended our offer to include a certificated Safeguarding course that equips supply staff with the tools they need to understand this very important area.
Also watch out for our online Cover Supervisor and Personal and Behavioural Management courses which are new for 2015.
