Gerald Haigh provides invaluable advice for navigating the job application minefield with ease
Teachers who truly want to get on and make a difference to children’s lives always have one professional eye on their next job. Landing the post you want, though, involves skills and techniques that aren’t necessarily the same as the ones you deploy in the classroom. Half the battle lies in simply realising that. The other half consists of learning the rules of the job-seeking game. My aim here is to help you understand those rules, so that you can avoid the common pitfalls that can stand between you and that wonderful job you have set your heart on.
