I have read the frequently asked questions and other threads on the difference between a covering letter, application statement etc. However, in my area schools frequently ask for the application form with statement and a covering letter explaining what you can offer and sometimes a CV as well. I was wondering if you could.. (or anybody else) let me know the difference if you HAVE to complete both, as I am so far being unsuccessful within the area and although I get plenty of opportunities outside of the area (they ask for one or the other) no luck in my desired area so I must be doing something wrong! I have even tried to write the letter as a statement and put a summary of skills (as shown on other thread) into the application statement! Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
