Dear Theo, I didn't get the job. But I would like to thank you for all the good advice and especially for the information re the executive summary. I should first explain that I am not a teacher, I work in school admin but have been following the discussions on this forum very closely and have adapted the advice and used it for support staff applications. Feedback from my interview included the fact that my application form was so strong and that I should not change a thing. It was just unfortunate that on the day my personality did not shine through until near the end of the interview (need to work on that ) and if it hadn't been for such a strong field of applicants I would have definately got the position (it was down to three of us in the end). Anyway, thanks again, the experience was well worth it.
