WORKING WITH PE DIRECT

We can offer you both short and long-term placements, and flexible hours. So you can choose how many days you want to work, from one day a week up to full time.

We’ll carefully match your qualifications and experience to the opportunities we have available. We’ll also help you get the experience you’d like. So you can specialise and use your skills doing what you love. Or you can get a wide breadth of experience to help you decide which direction you’d like your career to go in.

We pay professional rates of pay which reflect your qualifications and expertise. Your pay will also include holiday pay to cover the school holidays.

We administer our payroll ourselves. This means we don’t have to pay an outside company and you receive 100% of all you earn.

And because we work to the Agency Workers Regulations and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s guidelines, you can be sure we’ll always treat you fairly.

Training and Continuing Professional Development

We’ll support you throughout your time with PE Direct. For example, we’ll provide you with professional supervision, a range of training and advice and guidance on how you can develop your career.

Before you can start work in a school you’ll need to complete our in-house induction and the following training:

  • Safe practice in PE
  • Good practice in PE
  • Behaviour and classroom management
  • Child protection

To keep your knowledge and skills up to date, you’ll need to repeat this training every year.

We also provide optional training on subjects such as lesson planning and how to write a CV.
