I'm filling in a job application for KS2 Class Teacher and one of the sections on the application form is to declare membership of professional bodies. I'm not currently in the GTC as have been out of teaching for almost 4 years, and similarly not a member of a teaching union - I couldn't afford to keep up the fees on a non-teaching wage. I can't think what else it might mean, do you have any advice? Also I'm sure I've seen the answer to this somewhere but can't find it now - the application has a section for supporting statement on the application form and from the description it sounds like they want a supporting statement and not an executive summary. However in his letter the headteacher has asked for a separate letter of application. What should I put in the supporting statement section in this case? It's a generic council application form. Thanks in advance for any advice.
