Dear Theo...

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by meeperoon, Jun 28, 2011.

  1. I'd say you are in a stronger position than you think, many schools are looking for a strong MFL presence within the staff.

    I would make sure youve followed all Theo's advice regarding executive summarys and the such like and then think about the MFL over the higher key stages as an advantage.

    You understand what will be expected of the yr5's and yr6's as they go to high school and so you can adequately prepare them for that transition and also assist with the planning for the other younger year groups to allow early effective learning to take place.

    Dont worry about not feeling like youve had enough experience in either, all NQT's feel like that (I know I do!) but you actually know alot more than you think, where were you at the beginning of your course compared to now.

    If you write about your experiences with confidence they will come across that way too.

    Best of luck x

    p.s anyone tell me how to put spaces between lines in these paragraphs because no matter how I try it wont!!
  2. To do paragraphs you put the smaller than sign at the beginning and end of each paragraph!

    Also good luck to the OP, I've seen a couple just recently looking for language specialist for KS2, so you might get lucky!

    Some good points made by meeperson there!
    And have you considered looking at independent schools? Many prep schools run from aged 8 to age 13, so that covers your training perfectly. Pop over to the independent section and read the clickables in the Welcome thread there.
    (After reading the clickables in our Welcome thread here, of course!)
    Best of luck.
