Do I still need to write a covering letter?

    Hi all,


    I'm applying to my very first teaching post and have already encountered a
    hiccup. I have always been of the impression that, when applying for a teaching
    post, you should include a covering letter selling yourself as the best
    candidate. However, the job advert for this particular job does not state
    whether or not a covering letter should be included and has a 'Supporting
    Statement' section on the actual application form which invites candidates to
    write up to 2 pages and 'match your skills, knowledge, experience and personal
    qualities to the job description, person specification and advert'
    . Further to
    this, the application form states that 'the decision to shortlist you for interview will be based solely
    on the information you provide in the Application Form
    '.


    Should I still write a covering letter? Would this lead to too much
    repetition?


    Thank you in advance for your response(s).
