phrasing experience for Executive Summary - help please

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by senlady, Feb 25, 2016.

    The essential criteria listed is:

    Experience of monitoring, assessing, recording and reporting of pupils’ progress.

    Now as an experienced teacher I have this but how to phrase it in a succinct way for an Executive summary? Would:
    "As a class based teacher this was an essential part of my day to day work using x or y system" be suitable? I would then add a sentence about how I do this now as a specialist (peripatetic) teacher trying to keep it brief!

    As an aside another criteria is:
    A commitment to differentiate materials to meet pupils’ needs

    Surely that is just the minimum required??

    Much too long.

    Successful use of X system over Z years.

    You don't want to be drawn into sentences . . . just simple statements.

    Regularly produce materials to meet differing needs of pupils.

    Just get their words and turn'em round when they are too obvious.

    Some people don't know how to write job descriptions or person specifications. :)

    Best wishes

    brilliant - I had kept the other ones very short and to the point but this one stumped me for some reason. That is far clearer and fits with how the others were reading.

    Thanking you.

    Good luck! E.S. are not at all easy to write.

    Should it be kept to one side of A4 or does this not matter. On your comprehensive guide I cannot seem to spot anything about that?

    I am having a similar problem to this one except I am applying for a post as an NQT. On my most recent placement I was graded against all the teaching standards so have 'numerical evidence' for my ability to monitor, assess, record and report pupils’ progress, but I'm not sure if " graded level x in assessment strand of teaching standards on most recent placement" is appropriate in the Executive Summary?

    It is evidence that is clear. Go for it.

    Best wishes

    P.S. if you just add something to the end of a thread, it may not get seen, @ivpinches . Best to start a new thread. @senlady tagged me @TheoGriff so i was alerted to this, but starting a new thread would be better next time.

    Best wishes again!
