Personal Statement and Letter of Application for a Deputy Head teacher

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by porthenys, Feb 19, 2010.

  1. I am applying, or trying to apply for a DH position in a Catholic Primary School however I am getting very confused about what should be in both. I am torn between two sets of advice. I have written most of what I consider to be my personal statement. I am finding writing my philosophy of Catholic education quite hard, any ideas on how this should be phrased?

    I would also be ever so grateful for any advice on how to lay out my letter of application. I understand it should follow the person specification but that is about it. Please help!

    Have a look at the thread pinned to the top of this Forum, which should give you all the advice that you need.
    The Executive Summary example is particularly relevant for a SLT post.
    Here's what another poster today said about this advice:
    Best wishes!

  3. Hi,

    Saw this message when doing a little internet research. Have recently applied for a DH position in a Catholic Primary ( I have not worked in the CES before). According to feedback I didn't get shortlisted due to my lack of evidence in supporting the school's ethos. To say the least I was a little surprised by this as I am a practicing Catholic and felt that my evidence was one of the strongest part of my statement (maybe a little over-confident)
    I would appreciate any advice in this area and the supporting statement process as a whole.

    I'd change your username and get this post removed from here - not your best plan to advertise to prospective employers that you're asking others for help on here...
