Assistant Head Applicaton-pastoral?
« on: January 31, 2010, 07:45:50 PM »
Hello Fellow SLNers,

I am considering the above role and was wondering does anyone have a copy of their letter of application for a similar role?

I would be very appreciative.

Thank-you in anticipaiton.

I'm an AHT but not pastoral- so I can't advise you on that. Have a look on the SMT forum on the TES you may find something there. On a general note- Make your letter match the person spec 100%. you need to demonstrate whole school impact of a pastoral nAture that you have done. If you have completed the ncl leadership pathways programme you should be able to write about your project in detail.
I don't know what job you do already... Hoy? Hod? You need to show you are ready for the next step. It's a huge jump ..   Even if you think you're ready it'll run you ragged!!! I love it but despite being experienced still underestimated how hard it would be.
If it's for a job advertised in the Fridays tes - let me advise you it was a Senior dht job and now it's an aht
best of luck with it.
