Cor, I hope your application is in a bigger font - can hardly manage to read this with my old eyes! I am very pkeased to see that you are taking such a sensible and organised approach to the applications you are doing. This bodes well! Now let's look at a few points: Yes, indeed. A summary is just that - it is summarises. So you may have some or many of the same things, but very, very condensed. Summarised in fact. Overall the E.S. should be just one page. In, er, a sensible font size please! No, please don't! I really hate it when someone expects you to juggle different pieces of paper to get the full picture. So please don't ever put: See letter or See CV or See Form or See Anything, anywhere on your application. Your example needs to be summarised something like this: Practitioner with effective strategies to meet needs of all pupils And your evidence will be one of the following: 2 years successful teaching KS2 (Put the right figure in!) Or: Successful placements in KS1 and KS2 Very short. Very brief. Very summarised! This should therefore in no way undermine your application letter or statement. If you feel you'd like more help on executive summaries, then perhaps think about coming to one of our Application seminars. Just given details in this answer: Dear Theo et al Or even, even, book a personal meeting with me some time in October . . . Best wishes. _____________________________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
