I am attempting to fill in an application form which tells me that I can either fill in the additional information section, or attach as a separate document if preferred, referring to the person specification. My first problem is that the headings in the additional information section don't match up with the headings on the person specification. The person specification is in table format, which includes 9 essential points and 3 desirable points, as well as 16 leadership and management responsibilities. Also within the job description there are a further 16 bullet points each with at least 3 sub points which seem to be taken from the teaching standards. I have no idea whether I am supposed to include all of this within my statement (or how, without writing about 10 pages!), or just the main points in the person spec. Also, is it ok to write the statement as part of my letter of application or should it be a completely separate document? Sorry for the waffle, and thank you in advance!
