Please can anyone help me I am a newly qualified teacher who has not been able to secure a permanent position. I am registered with several supply agencies and they have told me that my references came back really good. However when I apply for jobs I am getting refused straight away and not even getting on a shortlist. I am convinced this is due to a poor personal statement. Having followed the advice on the TES websites, prospects websites and of several people ranging from heads to supply recruiters. My personal statement has been written and re-written, as well as restyled several times by me. I am anxious to get this sorted before next week as i will be applying for jobs in september. What i am looking for is someone to look at my personal statement and advise me in detail ( i.e examples of how to make it sound better). I will not post it online but please can someone help me.
