  3. In the personal statement, outline your experience so far regarding KS4, things such as running revision classes, catch up coursework, different teaching approaches which you have used. Priorities would probably be:
    • Overseeing Schemes of Work.
    • Ensuring that appropriate resources are available, e.g. copies of texts.
    • Identifying pupils who have fallen behind with work and putting appropriate strategies in place.
    • Identifying pupils on C/D Borderline and putting intervention strategies in place.
    • Supporting staff with difficult pupils.
    • All the admin which comes with KS4, mark
     
  4. should be mark sheets etc.
    • Moderating coursework.
    • Setting internal mock exams.
    • Using data effectively to highlight underachievers.
    • Preparing revision sessions etc.
    • Liasing with One to One Tutors.
    List is endless. Hope this helps
     
  5. Hi regentsreject,
    Thank you for your advice. I think I am just dithering and I am just going to put pen to paper and go for it.
