    Hi, sorry if I am appearing thick here [​IMG] I am filling in this application form and have come across this

    In this box please provide examples to demonstrate how your behaviours meet the essential criteria for this role
    Can someone please give me some pointers (it's a TA job).
    Thank you

    No, not thick at all!
    But it's a bit confusing the way that they have worded it, so with a bit of luck some of the other applicants will just give up at this point, so you'll be left with fewer rivals. :)
    They want you to show specific examples of how you meet the criteria on the person spec or job spec that goes with this job.
    So the best thing is to do a nice neat Executive Summary here. If you have no idea what I'm talking about here, then you need to pop into the Welcome thread and open the two Shortlisting clickables.
    All will be explained!
    Best wishes

    Just to add...
    I live in Scotland and the councils use a central site with standardised forms for applications and there is no way to submit the exec statement. I do one anyway as the starting point for my applications to focus my mind on the school's priorities.
    Since I started doing this my strike rate for interviews has gone up from 10 to 50%.
    Well worth it...
    PS typing with baby asleep on my shoulder so sorry for any mistakes - can only see half the keyboard!
