Dear Theo..do I mention this?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by tweetypi88, May 4, 2012.

  1. Hi there,
    I'm currently writing my personal statement and filling out an application form for a job, however I'm unsure as to whether I should include something. I covered PPA in a school for around two months until someone else was appointed for the job. It wasnt a contract and I was paid as a supply teacher. I planned the r.e, history and geography lessons for this period. Should I mention this in my personal statement, and name the school? Also should it be put down in my work history or should I not include it as it wasn't a contract?
    Many thanks

    Yes, most certainly mention this - both in the letter and the work history. It's a bonus in your favour!
    Er . . . you don't mention doing the executive statement. Have you done it? It is best to do it before writing the letter of application, as it helps ensure that this is geared more specifically to the school.
    Best wishes
