Theo, three of the LAs I'm applying to have a section on their application form for "known as". It comes straight after title, first name and last name. There are two posts in two of these LAs I want to apply to this week and, having sent off lots of applications so far this year and not even had an interview, I want to make sure I'm not making silly little mistakes that get my applications binned. So, could you clear up for me what this section is asking for? Does it mean the name you are "known as" as a teacher, ie. Mrs.....? Or does it mean the name you are known as if you go by something other than your legal name - in which case if you go by your legal name you would just write N/A? Another quick question - I am currently studying the TDA's Return to Teaching course with Edge Hill University. These two LAs' forms are also particularly unclear around education, qualifications and relevant training. Do I list my RTT under education or under relevant training? Similarly I am currently studying with the Open University towards a Diploma in Music, so the qualification is as yet incomplete. Should I list this under education/qualifications as "in progress", or would it be better not to list it and just mention it in my letter of application if the person spec is asking for Music specialism or commitment to CPD? I am at the stage where I have written so many applications and heard nothing, I'm questioning everything I write on them.
