  • Be flexible and willing to travel
  • Ideally have a full driving licence and access to your own transport
  • Be passionate about educating and supporting children with a range of backgrounds and ability levels
  • Have a degree or be a very experienced coach with a coaching qualification
  • Be eligible to work in the UK
  • Be able to provide a reference to demonstrate your ability to train/coach/teach/support children, young people or adults within the last year

The benefits of working with Principal Teachers:
  • No umbrella companies, you can be paid PAYE as standard
  • For long term supply teachers, we offer a PAID DAY OFF on your birthday (T&C’s apply)
  • Investment in CPD opportunities
  • Over 16 years’ experience providing premium standard staff to schools across Yorkshire and North East regions
  • We are advocates of fair pay and conditions and work hard to offer competitive remuneration for supply staff
  • We are proud to be reputable for our ethical and friendly service
  • Supportive Recruiters who will regularly check how you are getting on and listen to your feedback

Principal Teachers are strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure and a range of other recruitment vetting checks. Principal Teachers are acting as a recruitment agency in relation to this vacancy.
