Headteacher application form

    How should I complete the section relating to the National Standards for Headteachers - four Domains?

    Should each point within each domain be referenced to a particular event/role/activity or could it be evidenced as ongoing occurrences?

    I haven't seen the form so I don't know how much space there is.

    I would have thought that you needed to give outcomes where possible as well as continuing actions.

    Have you seen all the applications advice BTW?

    Let me know if not.

    Best wishes

    There is one A4 page allotted to each domain and then an A4 for space for a letter of application/personal statement.
    No I have not seen the applications advice - do they refer to the new standards?

    Then my suggestion is the following.

    For each of the A4 spaces for the domains you do an E.S. (Explanation later). For the A$ space for supporting statement you write about your vision for the school and how you would achieve this.

    No, I was referring to my advice!

    2. Applying for a job in a school I suggest that you read these in this order. I have included links not relevant to you for the benefit of any other poster reading this.

    NQTs start here! *** N.B. ***

    Do I have to tell my Head I am applying elsewhere?

    Pre-application visits to schools

    Why you should always include an E.S. in an application
    How to get shortlisted for a teaching job *** The basic advice***

    How NOT to get shortlisted

    How do schools shortlist candidates?

    Common errors found in applications

    The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth!

    Who should be my referees?

    Can I see my references?

    Can your Head write a negative reference for you? Or refuse to write one? Can you see what was written... ***NEW ***
    Step-by-step: How to write an E.S. *** More basic advice ***

    Executive summaries - where to start when no person specification

    Person Spec too long - how do I do an E.S.? And where do I put it? *** Beginners start here ***

    Application form: how to present long list of posts outside education

    How can I provide details of examination results?

    Can I omit, on an application, a period spent teaching abroad?

    No CPD to put on the application form!
