Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by hol75, May 18, 2011.

  1. I am applying for a job in a primary school and have the job specification but in addition to that there is also a list that bascially states that the school expects the post holder to carry out the folowing duties set out in the list eg
    work in close partnership with colleagues in parallel classes,
    work and manage on a day to day basis the assistants and support staff .
    There are twelve duties in all.

    Do I include the list as part of the job spec and use each point as part of the executive summary or do I just use the essential points from the job spec? Hope that makes sense!

    Thanks

    Glad to hear that you are tackling the E.S. sensibly!
    For anything like this, you have to prioritise.
    What do you think is more important to the school? What cannot be seen immediately from your application form? (So leave out the bit about QTS if space is tight).
    You can sometimes group two or three things together.
    This could become Work collaborately with parallel teachers, teaching assistants and support staff.
    Good luck!

  4. Thanks for the quick response. I have found this forum especially helpful as I have been a supply teacher for the last 5 years , having taught full time for 12 years before then. I am now trying to get a part time teaching post!
