    I am joining a supply agency and they have asked me to send them a CV. I have been teaching 10 years and have never had to do this so I am a bit stuck for where to start with layout, etc. Can anyone give me any advice on where to start??

    Thanks

    Just a couple of pieces of advice:

    1. Google "teaching cv"

    2. Reject any examples that come from the States; only UK ones

    3. Do not begin with a Mission Statement I am a highly-committed, well-trained individual looking to develop my skills in an environment where all share their talents . Yuk.

    4.. Do not leave any gaps.

    5. Set it our very neatly with loads of white space

    Best wishes
