Dear Theo NQT executive summary

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by thattallteacher, Jun 9, 2011.

    I am currently writing my executive summary, as you suggest. However, as an NQT I find the example executive summary hard to apply to the posts I am applying to. I wondered if you could please provide an example of an NQT executive summary
    Thank you
     
  2. Just about to post exactly the same question!! awaiting Theos ever helpful response!

    Yes, I know that you would all like that.
    Which is just why I do NOT provide one . . .
    Let me explain.
    One of the major issues for schools and pools is plagiarism. Often accidential plagiarism. People showing their application statements around, reading other people's, and being too closely inspired by what they have read when they come to write their own. Schools and Local Authorities are so worried about this that they are now beginning to use the same sort of anti-plagiarism software that is used by UCAS.

    Therefore, I have deliberately chosen a SLT post for my example as the person/job specifications vary a lot for those.
    But if I did an exemple of a classroom post, as filled in by a NQT, it would fit hundreds of posts and thousands of NQT applicants.
    Come on, be honest!
    If I gave you an example of a NQT executive summary - wouldn't you be tempted to write more or the less the same? How could you improve on Theo's Wise Words? [​IMG]
    But if you wanted NOT to use mine - how easy would it be for you to find a different way of saying more or less the same thing? By publishing my example on here, I am depriving you of using some very good phrases and examples that you might have thought of all on your own, because they are now offically Mine and would come up as such in the plagiarism search.
    So, sorry, no: I won't give you the example that you want!
    (But if you do a search on this Forum for executive summary, somewhere among the hundreds of hits that you get you will find the odd thread where someone has asked me to suggest something to fit a particular criterion from a person spec. This may give you some clues).
    Best wishes.

    I understand the predicament
    Thank you anyway
     
  5. Oh well worth a try! Thanks anyway Theo.
    However I'm still looking to start my induction-two years after qualifying. I'm living in a rubbish area jobwise, competing with who knows how many other qualified, younger, better looking etc etc teachers, have tried everything Theo has suggested to get an interview- but nothing. Not only feeling very let down by my PGCE provider (apparently one of the best in the country) for not providing sufficent job hunting advice-but peed off in general with not being able to do what I am so passionate about-teaching
    Ho hum...onwards and upwards!!
