Dear Theo..killer supporting statement/letter of application

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by pastychucker, Nov 13, 2011.

  1. Dear Theo, I have been a good girl and completed my executive statement now I need to do a killer letter of application.
    Can you point me to the relevant hints and tips?
    Am I just expanding on my summary?

    Good girl, you can be Board Monitor after break.
    Your letter of application should address the points in their documents, so yes it expands your summary.
    It should aslo set out your philosophy of education. Yours. Your own. Your own personal one.
    So when you google "philosophy of education examples", remember that a good number of applicants will have googled these as well . . .
    A school is likely to be unhappy with any part of an application that seems copied . . .
    Best wishes
