I need help please in working out how to fill in the employment history and references section of applications. I am an NQT but have decided to apply for TA/LSA posts. My situation is this: completed PGCE July 2010 independent supply work - at final placement school and another school (not had any work from either for months despite them being very happy with my teaching) agency supply work - January 2011 to March 2011 - again excellent feedback but stopped working with them because I had a cancer scare (all clear) and my brother had a brain haemmorage (sp?) which caused me to re-evalaute my own life since then I have coached the netball team at a local primary school and, since last month, am working as a volunteer session worked with The Children's Society. So the questions are: What do I put for last job and reason for leaving? Do I put down the independent supply work? Who do I put for referees - I was thinking the Head at my last placement school (since I'm also down as a supply teacher for them) and the Head at the school where I was a TA prior to the PGCE or do I have to put the supply agency (who don't know me very well but did have the excellent feedback from the small amount of work I did) or The Children's Society (though they don't know me well either and it's voluntary). Hope you can make sense of this. Thank you.
