Discussion in 'Professional development' started by gomma, Mar 5, 2005.

  1. Hi..wonder if I could have some advice.
    I am in my third year of teaching and have been acting head of dept. since sept. when my HOD went on maternity leave. I am applying for a HOD job elsewhere, any advice on the kind of things to put into an application letter for a head of Dept. job? Also a bit concerned about my experince after only 3 years in the job...any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

  3. You need to underline what things you can do that your HoD does normally and if you have done any of them before, then give examples. Also identify areas to be developed and how you could contribute to that development with your knowledge/skills.
    I can email you my standard application letter if you want to, just let me have your email and I will send it to you.
    Good luck!
