Non-fiction writing- cover letter for job application

Non-fiction writing- cover letter for job application

A whole lesson for mixed ability KS3 or KS4, focusing on the style and structure of a cover letter when applying for a job. Resources include 10 different job adverts from a range of industries for students to ‘apply’ to with a formally written cover letter. This was used for an English lesson but could be adapted for whole school e.g. students applying for work experience.

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

This is a careers strategy that maps out careers provision from Y7-Y13 to help your school become compliant with the new statutory changes for careers launched in January 2018. The roll out of this plan will satisfy all Gatsby standards which outlines best practice in this area. The document is a comprehensive map of provision that can be adapted to any school setting (including one with a sixth form). The document can be edited so that you can include your school branding. The idea is the map is then printed at size A1. I have also included some recruitment documents and the pupil survey.

Year 11 GCSE MOTIVATION!! Your Life in Weeks - Demonstrated on a single slide

This powerful illustration puts a students' life into thousands of tiny squares in a screen and puts into perspective how small their time at school is in comparison to the rest of their life and the life they have already had. The notes under each slide explain which slide links to which school year. This is especially powerful for year 11s just about to undertake their GCSEs in helping to see them in context with the wider picture. The concept of this is slightly abstract so any questions about this, please message me!
