Degree classification

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by catrennie84, Mar 13, 2011.

  1. Dear Theo,

    I wonder if you can give me some advise.

    I have been working in a primary (prep) school for five years, 2 as Director of Music. I am a qualified secondary music teacher and A level music examiner and am applying for music teaching jobs in independent secondary schools with my wife, who is a qualified secondary history teacher.

    My potential problem is that I have a 2:2 degree (from Durham in Music). In mitigation, I missed a year of my secondary schooling due to a very aggressive cancer that required extensive chemotherapy and surgery, which led to many side effects that continued throughout my degree.

    Obviously I am not going to explain this on letters of application etc., however would it be possible for my Headmaster from school (who I have kept in touch with and until recently was my referee) to write to these schools in support of my application? I am very keen that my 2:2 does not to hold me back from being shortlisted.

    Many thanks,
