Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by haylmrgn, Jan 31, 2011.

  1. I'm currently filling out a application form and have come across the previous employment section. As I'm currently a trainee the only experience I have had of working in schools is through my block placements.

    Instead of leaving this section blank should I provide details of my placements schools here, although I have previously mentioned them in my covering letter?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, at this stage only (not when you have had a job), put in your TP schools, but making it very clear that you were not employed, just on TP.
    Make sure you have read the FAQs and shortlisting clickables inside the Welcome thread - there are fewer jobs available and a large number of unemployed teachers, so it is essential that you make your application as good as it possibly can be.
    Best of luck!
