Hello Theo, With the end of my probationary year in sight I'm currently applying for jobs. I am keen to work overseas and been trying to put a CV together. This is to send to international schools and in response to job adverts. Struggling a bit with what to include. I started teacher training when I was 25. Prior to that I had held a number of jobs, both in the UK and abroad. Also while at university and during holidays. Always with responsibility, successes and promotion but never for very long and not related to teaching. I have moved around alot,however I feel these experiences have had made me who I am and given me traits that have a very positive effect on my practice. However to include them all is very lengthy and most advice seems to suggest omitting any non teacher experience. This would leave large gaps in my employment and my CV looks rather bare. Also should I include a personal statement? If so should it include my key skills and teaching style? Many questions I know but I am finding it hard to get any advice. Cheers! Katy Oh im a primary teacher from Scotland if that bares any significance.
