Advice on writing a covering letter for an international school

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by jessjaw, Mar 16, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I am about to begin applying for teaching positions in international schools, specifically in South East Asia, and have been advised to adapt my CV in format and structure for the International market. Having done this, I am also aware that the initial covering letter is extremely important, and that getting a CV read will depend on it, but am really unsure what this letter should contain and how long it should be.
    Does anyone have any adivce on the matter?
  2. Hi JessJaw,
    You need to say why you wants to work there, how your skills, education & experiences would make you an excellent candidate for the post. If you can relate your skills / experiences to the school's mission statement and aims then all the better.
