I have followed your advice in the clickables and yet I have been rejected for the past 20 jobs that I've applied for. I have even started applying for TA posts, which I have also been rejected for. I read through the posts on the forum everytime I write a new application just in case there was something I missed. I have attended your seminar and I would like to use the application review service, but I can't afford it. The posts I have included an ES for haven't resulted in an interview. When I was at university, my tutor said to essentially group the key points of the PS that overlap together. I did this for one of my early application and made it to interview. I have since tried grouping the points together if they overlap and addressing the PS criteria individually. Are either acceptable? Or is the individual one preferred? I have had feedback from SMT and two headteachers who say it is a strong application, which doesn't really help. I have been to the university careers service who don't give one way or the other as the best way to approach this. They just read through them and tell me that they are well written. The only possible thing I can think of is that paragraphs I write on relationships with parents, colleagues and children are a bit generic, but how do I relate them to the school without sounding like I'm going to solve all their problems or promising the earth? On applications I have tried to say what I could bring to the school, but again, the same problem, do I say something like from your Ofsted I see that you are working on....., this is something I'm very knowledgeable about for example? Help!
