Dear Theo - Employment history and GTP declaration

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by mmm...Milk, Feb 4, 2011.

    Hi Theo, I have two questions, possibly both asked before but here goes
    1. The job application is asking for my current post - as I am currently not working, even on supply, I don't know what to put. (I don't think they will count chief cook/bottle washer and mother, despite the fact it is a more demanding role!) I am a parent helper at my daughers primary (I an secondary), but only one morning a week. I last worked Feb 2010 on supply.

    2. Where to do I say about my PGCE Futher Ed and my GTP? in post grad qualifications or proffessional qualifications?

    Oh, a third question (sorry), references - I do have two references I Can use - the head at the infants school I am parent helper at and another lady I have done voluntary work in a dance class environement. Will these be OK? Other wise it is someone I worked for for 2 weeks a year ago, or 8 weeks even more than a year ago.
    Thanks

    That's good, then. It can be quite upsetting for people with just the FE PGCE to discover that they can't get into schools.
    Q2 So put the QTS very very clearly as a postgraduate qualification.
    QTS (via GTP) June 2008
    Q3 Pick out the essentials to keep it to one side. Or just go for the person one if you fit it better.
    Do what makes you look best for the post.
    Best wishes
