Headteacher Application - Personal Statement and cover letter. (Successful 2019)

(0)
A comprehensive covering letter and personal statement which I wrote during my recent job search. Although it obviously needed to be adapted to suit the needs of each school that I was applying for, I found that having a ‘base’ letter was extremely useful. I was shortlisted for each job I sent this application to (and gained a headship) There was nothing on line at the time that I could use to guide/scaffold me, so I hope that someone finds this useful!

A plan which contains all of the instructions, and the resources to set up a crime scene in your classroom.
