I am appying for a post and there is no person specification to tailor the application to. I completed my PGCE in 2010 and since completed 1 term of induction and then worked on long term supply and day to day supply as well as having some office temp roles. I am struggling to even get shortlisted even though I tailor my applications and have thought that some jobs were perfect for me - had everything that the school needed which I outlined in the letter. I have tried including the executive summary and it did work on one application where I gained an interview but I was unsuccessful as they went for more experience (it was a maternity cover role for a teacher that had a lot of GCSE groups). When on supply I am often asked back to schools and have been told that they want me to stay if the sick teacher decided not to return, so I must make a good impression at the schools that I teach in. The job I am applying for would be perfect. I have visited the secondary school and completed most of the application but I wandered how I can summarise the points without a person specification to match my skills and experience to? Thank you for your help.
