Dear Theo (and others) Application question

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Butterflychic, Mar 28, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    The application I'm currently filling in doesn't ask for an employment history. It is asking for "previous teaching posts" and "present teaching post" only.
    As an NQT, I have no previous teaching posts, should I put my training placements in here? or even my work as a TA?
    My current post is as an admin assistant in the retail industry.. so entering that info would go aainst their present "teaching" post request :s

    Help! :s
     
  2. Oh NB: there is a section for "other employment" from the last two years - so scratch that no employment history bit!

    As a NQT (or nearly!), you may put your TP in the teaching posts, either previous or current, depending on the timing.
    But once you have got a real job, then in the future these drop off and are usually not mentioned again.
    Best wishes
