    I'm applying for a job as an NQT and feeling rather daunted by the application form with a big blank box! I've written a draft as well as I can with the sections Current and Past Experience, Other Educational Experiences and Hobbies, but the hobbies section feels a bit like I'm writing a dating profile... I like long walks to the fridge etc ;)
    Do I need to include this? Uni have mentioned it but it feels a bit informal and deflating compared to the rest of my application. I've tried to relate it to my career too.

    So does anyone have any recommendations of sections? And should I include hobbies?!

    Thanks in advance
