Teaching students of all needs
Excellent support from colleagues and administrators. Nothing but respect for the schools servicing the Las Vegas valley.

Cons

I truly have no cons for this company. Education is hard field and is not for everyone. To those who have put years of service in this field… thank you!

Advice to Management

Nothing. Continue doing great things for your employees and students!!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Somerset County Council (Taunton, England) in Oct 2018

    Interview

    Three men staring at you in one small office. Not a great interview. The interviewers did not come across as protectors and that they were interested in my welfare within the work place. Bad impression of the Council.
    Interview

    How soon can you start.
