Dear Theo, I need help with an application for deputy head in my current school

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by ashley6702, Apr 15, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    I am currently applying for the Deputy Head position at my current school. I know i have a lot of stronger competition so the application itself is stressful enough.
    Due to the nature of the position I am unsure of who to put as references.. This has been my only teaching position and one of my placement schools has now closed.
    For other applications i have put my current head and deputy but because of it been an internal position i am unsure who to put.
    Also with your experience for the roles and responsibilities would you bullet point/list or write in detail.
    Please help.

    For the reference question, I suggest that you ask the Head what s/he advises. To be quite frank, in internal posts, the referees aren't a make-or-break issue.
    As for your second question - have you read the shortlisting clickables inside the Welcome thread?
    Best wishes
