Help With Resumes, CVs, Job Applications and Cover Letters

If you've already found your ideal teaching job and want to ensure your application makes the grade, you're in the right place.

Our simple-to-follow Job Guides will help you write a first class application, guaranteed to secure you that all-important job interview. There's a guide which gives help writing resumes and CVs, another which shows you how to write great covers letters and a third which provides advice on writing job applications.

There's also advice on using teacher resume templates as well as a real-life teacher resume template example if you'd like to see how a teacher resume could look.

Help With Teacher Interviews

An interview for a teaching position is, like all other job interviews, an audition. While your interviewers are interested in the answers you give to their job interview questions, they are just as interested in how you convey your answers.

Teaching is, in large part, about relationships and communication and the job interview is your opportunity to showcase your communication and interpersonal skills.

During the job interview, your interviewers will be assessing:

  • How well you keep your audience interested and engaged
  • How well you get your points across
  • How well you listen

Your interview answers should be thorough yet concise. Open-ended questions like the teacher interview questions on the next page leave plenty of room for you to say what you want to say. But stay focused - don't stray into areas that are not related to the job and your skills and experience.

Remember that your job interview is really just a formal (sometimes informal) conversation. You too can ask questions. Prepare good interview questions to ask about the school and the position you're applying for. If it's your first interview for a particular job, don't ask about salary and benefits - that discussion comes later.

In the same way that you wouldn't walk into a classroom without adequate preparation, don't walk into your job interview unprepared. When you are prepared for your interview you will be more relaxed and confident, which is the best way to be.
