  1. 'Experience appropriate to length of service.' - sorry if i sound 'dumb' but what does this mean?
     
  2. 'Experience appropriate to length of service.' - sorry if i sound 'dumb' but what does this mean?
     
  3. I would take it to mean the following...

    Candidate X - Has taught for 10 years as a History Teacher, teaching the Cambridge Exam board in the same school.

    Candidate Y - Has taught for 10 years as a History Teacher. Has taught in three different schools, teaching three different curriculums, and for 4 of those years operated as a HOD for Humanities.

    So Candidate Y has more experience appropriate to the length of their service as they have taught a more diverse curriculum, worked in different schools and have worked as a HOD. Of course moving schools does not necessarily mean they are a better teacher, far from it, but it gives them experience on how different schools operate. It sounds like they want a teacher with ambition.

    Other reasonable explanations not withstanding it still sounds awkward to me. Maybe they meant to write salary/renumeration appropriate to length of service?
