This is a one-stop shop for finding and obtaining the teaching job for you, whether a trainee or looking for headship in primary and secondary schools. Many teachers strive to work in a particular type of school, a precise location or a specific post. Once such parameters have been set, obtaining your dream job can be extremely competitive. This guide to finding the right school, perfecting your application and polishing your interview technique will empower teachers at all stages of their career to gain an advantage in a competitive environment. "Get That Teaching Job!" includes: time-saving guidance on where to hunt for jobs; role-specific advice on developing a letter of application and preparing for interview; a comprehensive list of interview questions and advice on what the interviewers are looking for; and, techniques and tips for reflecting on, and building on the experience. Although the book contains template CVs, model answers and reflective questions, this book will help you to stamp your own personality on every application you make throughout your teaching career to help you to stand out from the crowd.
