SIEU2231 Career Planning – Writing a teaching application

This session is designed for all teachers and student teachers who are applying for a teaching position in schools. An experienced principal, an application writing specialist, will share his experiences in recruiting staff to ongoing and extended contract positions. In the session the presenter will discuss the influence of resumes, teaching experience, the interview process, selection criteria, presentation skills and values alignment on the decision making process in schools. The course will include opportunities for you to ask questions and will also highlight courses and resources that can support you in maximising your employability. There will be some emphasis on graduate and student teachers and those returning to teaching after an extended break looking for their first substantial teaching position but the principles of a good application also apply to those teachers writing applications to move between schools.
