    Hello there,

    Does anyone have any tips for writing an application letter for HoD? Is there anything in particular i should include beyond a teaching application letter?

    You need to match your application to the job spec if you've been sent one.

    You will need to show examples of how you have managed others at work, worked collaboratively, deputised for your current HOD and so on.

    Good luck!
     
  4. Put in management experience, delivering inset, managing budget, induction and mentoring, chairing meetings and running team - anything that you will need to do as HOD and that is in the person spec. If they haven't sent you one then ask for one. Team working is important too. If you've done any management courses then make sure you mention them. And put in what your vision is for your department.
     
  5. Thanks for the valuable tips :)
