Hi Theo, The application form for a job for which I would like to apply states that applicants should state and develop three reasons why the governors should consider them for the post. Is this the same as a covering letter in which I 'sell myself', or would I also need to include a covering letter? If I did, it would be likely to be shorter as some of the points I would make in the covering letter would be in the supporting statement. Would this be ok? Sorry if this is a silly question, I've never come across this before!
