Dear Theo I have recently applied for several AHT posts but with no success. I contacted the last school for feedback. I was told the my letter was in the top 10, yeah, that I have strong leadership amd management and that I demonstrated strong leadership using data, which was what they asked me to discuss. I was told I wasn't invited for an interview as I didn't discuss the implications of the white and green education papers, not mentioned in their application pack. I'm thoroughly confused about the whole AHT application process and feel it is purely down to luck. I've followed your advice in How to get shortlisted and the advice of an ex headteacher. What should I do to improve my chances of securing that interview?
