Cover, Supply Recruitment in Bristol and South West
SCip5 Education and Media is delighted to have worked in partnership with New Directions in 2013 and 2014. New Directions are the largest independent recruitment and training company in Wales. They have built an eviable reputation for quality of service, in sourcing any school or college’s cover requirements (be that emergency, planned or long term), and leading training in areas ranging from First Aid to Autism Awareness. Their safeguarding and compliance procedures are gold standard; they also look to build a two-way relationship with client schools, and are keen to support their work, and their learning community (for example, by sponsoring sports team kits, etc.).
