    After 4 years at my current school I have been job hunting, just seen a job for a Primary school I supplied at and loved.

    Theres nothing to download though and as I am a bit rusty at this application lark so I was thinking of grabbing a general LA application form and selling myself like crazy on it.

    Also Do I sell myself in the 'large box' on the application form or do I do a long selling myself cover letter or short cover letter?


    ( I did search the forums but found conflicting advice so just thought I would check :))

    Have you found the applications advice? tag me @TheoGriff to be shown where if not.

    I'd ring and check with the school secretary before doing that. Ask which application form is appropriate - the school may have moved to Academyship and not use LA stuff any more.

    E.S. in the box, plus a letter of application no more than 2 sides. Base the E.S. on the Teacher's Standards.

    Best wishes
