    Dear Theo,

    I thought I saw this question answered before but can't find it now after doing a search.

    Basically in a school's advertisement they said: "preferably experienced in teaching the IB PYP" which I don't have experience of.


    Should I just not put that into my ES or should I put it in and say I have knowledege about it and excited at the prospect of using it, etc etc


    Thanks again for your help :)

    You can do one of two things, Mairead.
    You can either leave it out completely, or you can put it in but changed.
    experienced in teaching the IB PYP = Familiar with IB PYP
    And then say that you have consulted the syllabus and seen overlap with your curriculum.
    :)
    Best wishes

    Thanks Theo,

    Also if a job says that they are looking for creative, dynamic, engaging teachers, should you use one of these words for each section of you ES/

    I'm at a loss of what to write for these kinds of things, any ideas?

    Thanks :)

    I would put the 3 together, and say something that shows them all.
    Produced play for 23 children in Year 3
    Or
    Devised 4-week cross-curricular scheme of work based on the Olympics.
    You've still got time to do that!
    Best wishes
