Hi all, I am a Primary PGCE student, preparing an application for a post starting next September. The school has sent an application pack, containing a standard Local Authority application form with the usual space for me to explain how I meet the job requirements. There is no guidance in the covering letter about whether they expect a letter of application. For any other (non-teaching) job, this would not be an issue and I would just complete the form as normal, but I know that providing a letter of application is quite common for teaching jobs. Do I (a) just go ahead and complete the form, (b) put 'See letter of application' on the form, and send an accompanying letter of application, or (c) (at the risk of looking a bit feckless) call the school and ask them about their expectations? I know it's all essentially the same information conveyed in different ways, but I don't want to take the chance of doing anything that could prejudice my application, given how competitive the market is. Any comments gratefully accepted! Thanks in advance.
