I've now secured 3 interviews thanks to Theo et al!

    My first three applications were made and three interviews have now been offered to me! The first is next week and the the second two are the week after.
    I personalised each application to the school, by linking my skills and experience with their specialism, talking about their Ofsted report and what I could bring to support their needs. I really sold myself, discussing my experience and knowledge of my subject. Lastly, I backed all my claims up with an example. Oh and of course the all important ES was included!
    Each application took me hours, it was hard work but I can not echo what Theo says enough about starting each application afresh. Lots of my fellow trainees have been using the same letter of application/personal statement with just a few extra bits added and they are not securing interviews.
    Now I just need to get some effective lessons planned for the interview and prepare for possible questions! All very nerve racking but will let you know how I get on. I am 1 of 5 interviewees in each.
    Follow the advice on these forums, it really works!
