    Dear Theo,
    Unfortunately I did not get the previous job I had been offered an interview for. Thus, I am back to writing job applications! Please can you help me to decipher exactly what the following job application is asking:
    "Please send your application
    form with a letter of application and statement (no more than one side A4) on
    educational values and philosophy".

    I am really confused!
    Thanks for your help.

    They want you to send:
    • your application form
    • a letter of application (make it max 2 sides, plus an executive summary)
    • a one-page statement of your educational values and philosophy.
    Make sure that you don't repeat between the statement and the letter. Good luck - sorry about the last one, but this could BE IT!
    Best wishes
