Dear Theo 1. Executive Summary - I am in the process of applying for a job and am having trouble compiling an executive summary. Hitherto I have had no problem because the person spec has been relatively easy. The person specification for this particular job has a long list of professional attributes such as: embrace risk and innovation. a drive for improvement. deal with complexity and uncertainty. listen, reflect and have the capacity to be flexible. demonstrate political acumen. etc. There is another long list of of roles and responsibilities such as: To ensure that data is refined and used to monitor the performance of pupils. To ensure that data is refined and used to monitor the performance of pupils. To ensure that data and other pupil information is used by staff to effectively to inform and improve teaching and learning (including SEN). To carry out self-evaluation and performance management processes in-line with School policy. etc. The list for both goes on and on. My question is do I compile a ES based on both? My second question is how do I overcome the fact that my degree wasn't that good (3rd I am ashamed to say?) Please note I have been teaching for 19 years, been a successful Head of Department on TLR2c, UPS3 and have taught predominately in selective sate and independent schools?
