Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by emmarugby, Apr 21, 2011.

  1. This may seem like a silly question but I'm new to this applying! I'm currently applying for PE teacher positions, in the application there is a section requesting ' details of special qualifications on the basis of which qualified status is claimed, including Membership of Professional Institutions gained by examination<font face="Times New Roman">.' Would this include previous NGB coaching qualifications??</font>

    Yes, that would be it exactly. You&acute;ve got the right idea there.
    You want to show off all your skills and qualifications, as it is a very competitive market out there - up to a third fewer jobs advertised this year so far, the Big Job Day in March just didn&acute;t happen (normally you need a fork lift truck to pick up your TES from your porch on that Friday - this year, it went straight through the letter box), and there are enormous numbers of NQTs from 2010, 2009 and even 2008 who haven&acute;t yet been able to start induction. And now teachers are getting redundancy notices . . .
    This explains why, in one recent case, a school with 2 primary vacancies got 500 applications.
    And many of those were asking to be considered for both posts . . .
    Do make sure that you read the shortlisting advice clickables inside the Welcome thread. Or come along on 14 May to get advice from us then.
    Best wishes
