Does anyone have any pointers on what to put on my application form? They are rather vague!
Which GTP are you applying for? What parts are you needing help with?
Have a look through the various other threads on here (and in the PGCE and prospective teachers sections) with advice on similar issues. Don't just limit yourself to application form help questions though - have a look at some of the interview help ones too.
In short, though:
1 - why do you want to be a teacher? Specifically why do you want to teach your subject/ age group?
2 - why GTP rather than PGCE or any other ITT route? (If you can target it specifically to the GTP provider too then that would be even better!)
3 - what classroom experience do you have? What has this shown you (both about teaching and yourself?)
4 - what will the challenges be to you - what have you done to start addressing these already (reading/subject knowledge/observing classes etc)
5 - why will you be a good teacher?
