Ok so in the first of my <u>'last go'</u> applications, there are as usual some things I need to ask if that's ok? It's for an Independent School. Not had <u>any</u> experience of these before, and doubt they would want someone like me, but feel I should give it a go anyway. Sorry if my questions' seem obvious to you. Q1. 'Curriculum Strengths should be in English, and experience of teaching across KS1 and KS2 would be an advantage although expertise in other areas are also welcome. Ok so are they talking about the other areas of expertise being in another Curriculum area, or that they don't mind receiving applications from Secondary trained teachers- or is this just what I am hoping? Q2. They say in the briefly 'If you would like to arrange a visit, please make an appointment by calling XXXX' , now usually that would be fine, but I thought that Independent Schools were not keen on visits. Do they want you to visit, or are they just being polite? Q3. I have no idea who my present employer is!? Q4. They talk about form tutors. I was never a form tutor in a primary school, but I was one with the same form group from Year 7-9. Should I mention something about this in my letter of application? Q5. (Last question, I promise (for the moment)!) They ask for a letter of application. I know what this is (I think) but on the <strike>stupid </strike>grey bit it says, listing all information relevant to the application, and any other information you may wish to provide. It would be in your interests to provide as full a statement as possible at this stage. Please indicate if there are any attachments - Do I tell them that I have actually attached the letter and the executive summary? The person spec for this one is hard! Sorry for all the questions, and if they sound a bit stupid!!!
