Application Form Question

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by choca_holic, Mar 2, 2012.

  1. Hi all,

    Apologies that this is one of those minor, boring
    questions that probably crops up on here a lot!

    I am filling in an application form for a primary
    teaching post. Part of the application form is:

    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font>Relevant Experience: Please
    read the Job Description and Person Specification carefully, then describe how
    your knowledge, skills and experience relate to this post.

    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font>However it also says to send the form with a letter of application.
    Which one shall I write my main personal statement bit in? Is it acceptable to
    write on the form &ldquo;see attached letter of application&rdquo; or is this a big no? Or should
    I split what I want to say between this application form section and the
    covering letter?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Affirmative to that.
    have you looked at the clickables in the pinned thread at the top of this forum?
    If it were me, I address the Job & Person spec. in my application form and in my letter of application set out 'Me', my teaching style, personal philosphy, what I could offer to the school etc.
  3. Great advice Lara, thanks! I'll do just that :)
