Challenging and rewarding work. Well Managed
Cover Supervisor/Cover Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire – 27 September 2018
I really enjoyed working with Tradewind. The staff were exceptional. Very polite, efficient and considerate. My consultant was exceptional, and although there were times where I could have done with extra days, I was well aware that there were other much more qualified and experienced candidates than myself.
The support from the company was really good. I really enjoyed the varied nature of the work. Going to really nice schools in primary one day, and then the inner city rough schools for secondary the next.
I learned a lot about myself, my branch of skills and what kind of teaching i am personally suited to.
A typical day was to wake up about 6, head off to the school for the day, get a briefing from the school about my roles for the day. Fulfill the roles. Integrate with the students, and assist the teacher where i could.After the day had finished, i would get a call from Tradewind (normally my consultant) and review how i felt the day had gone, and review what the school thought of me. Then try and get some more shifts for the week. I would be finished on average between 4 and 4.30 pm
well managed, lovely staff
long hours, infrequent work
