Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by rugby_gal06, May 19, 2011.

  1. I am revamping my supporting statement again for another NQT application. It has been suggested that I include a short paragraph at the beginning about the details of my degree/placements before talking about the positives of supply. Do you think this is needed?

    Ruby - what is needed is to have an application that meets the needs of the school. That identifies what they are looking for, and shows how you can provide it.
    And one that right from the start, catches their attention because you are clearly what they need.
    I'm not sure that writing about your degree (which is on the application form) is going to do this. Unless they are desperate to have an actual Physics/Maths graduate teaching Physics or Maths, in which case go for it!
    Have you read the advice in the Welcome thread? people have found it useful . . .

    I
    do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the
    Job Application Workshops. We look at application letters, executive
    summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really
    appreciate.














    The Job Seminars are all sold out, I'm afraid, but Julia is planning some more later on.















    A new SLT seminar is available now on 22 May <u>www.tesweekendworkshop32.eventbrite.com</u>, and another is planned for 18 June.















    E-mail Julia on advice@tsleducation.com for how to book a meeting with me personally.














    Look forward to seeing you!
