Trainee teacher who desperately needs help- job searching and CV writing

Discussion in 'Primary' started by thedancingqueen, Nov 20, 2010.

  1. Hi. I am on a three year primary teaching degree at a good university. I graduate this summer and so I'm beginning to think about applying for a job and CV writing. I know I have to get my CV written as soon as possible but I have no idea how I'm meant to structure it or what I'm meant to include. Can anyone help me please or direct me to a site that might be helpful. Also, I live in the north east and I've been trying to search online for local jobs but not many jobs have come up. Which sites can I use please to search for jobs and how I can I go about getting a job? Is there a chance that I could have a permanent post for september or are the chances of doing supply work much higher? I really need advice on how to go about applying for a job please, choosing a school to work in, what the interview process is like if I get an interview etc. I feel like I'm stepping out from my comfort zone and into the unknown. I enjoy teaching so much but finding a job seems daunting especially since there will be a lot of competition for jobs. How can I stand out from others when applying for jobs?
    I know I've asked loads of questions here but if people could point me in the right direction and advise me I'd be so grateful.

  3. Check out Theogriff's advice.
     
  4. I have never written a cv for a teaching job - in my local area all schools have their own application form which applicants of any level are required to complete.
    If you are at a good uni - or any uni for that matter, they should have tutors on hand to help you through the entire process.
    Finally, it is a little early to be looking for jobs for next september - they will not be advertised until at least Easter.

    Good luck
     
  5. Not strictly true.
    I got my NQT job long before Easter and the same was the case when I applied for and got my current teaching job.
