Employment: Support with Applications and Interviews

It is that time of year again where teaching jobs for September are starting to be advertised. In order for our trainees to feel as prepared for this next step in their journey, we have started the year with training days focused on all things employment!
From support with application letter writing to mock group interview, our trainees have felt incredibly supported in starting to apply for their dream jobs.

Top Tips for Application Writing:

  • Ensure every application is truly bespoke to the school you are applying for
  • Proof read your application carefully. Ask a friend or colleague to proof read it and send it to your link tutor in good time for checking and feedback
  • Give specific examples from your teaching practice to demonstrate how you move evidence and theory into practice
  • Let your passion shine through!

Top Tips for Interviews:

  • Reference the school specifically
  • Show you have done your research
  • Be passionate about the school
  • Take your time. Ask the interviewer to repeat a question if necessary
  • Draw from examples to exemplify your answers
