  3. Hi Italboggiwoman2,
    Qualifications are usually the second or third section within an application form. Even though they are important, it will be your personal statement that you need to really prepare and sell yourself to give yourself the maximum chance of being selected for interview.
    If you do get called, of course take your certificates along, but they will not really have any impact upon your interview success or their decision. The interview panel will already be aware of your training and will be far far more interested in you and your teaching on the day.
    All the best in your applications and interviews

    Pop over to the JobSeekers Forum, open the Welcome thread, and read the clickables about shortlisting, and about interviews.
    These will give you help with applications and interviews.

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Workshops. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    By popular demand! In response to Tessers e-mailing in: another Job Seminar now on Saturday 14th May:

    Look forward to seeing you!

    Check whether you have to bring certificates to the interviews or whether this is picked up at a later stage. Do ensure you bring originals and not photocopies
