Have seen a 'perfect' job advertised - it ticks every box for me and I tick all of job spec requirements bar one. I don't currently have the experience to teach 3 specified sports to match standard. I'm not too sure what this means either - is it a subtle way of saying has played at county standard, has organised teams and sporting opportunities, teaches PE?!? (I'm currently assuming the former...) I am not a natural sportsman - I ride and have (in my youth!) evented and showjumped at county standard but that was a very long time ago and unfortunately is not one of the specified sports. However, I enjoy teaching PE, am running a just set up tag rugby club with a colleague and have participated in local cluster tournaments in cricket last year with our school cricket club and I'm keen and happy to develop this area of my teaching practice. So the question is - is it worth an application? I don't want to ruin my chances of applying for a future post because I applied for this one knowing that one of the essential qualities I could not, at the point of applicatio, fully fulfil even though it is something I would be more than prepared to invest in developing?
