How we select our trainees?
Application – Personal statement
It is important you demonstrate that you have the necessary drive and ambition, married with an understanding of the role. The best way to demonstrate this is to provide further information regarding your experience of working in Primary Schools. What have your learnt about children and the role of a teacher?
You must use your personal statement to demonstrate you are the right person for us and the children of Hull. Ensure that you demonstrate what we are looking for and use the points identified in ‘the what we are looking for section’.
Application – Work and school experience
Give as complete a history as possible. Include all work experience. Demonstrate a strong work ethic and transferable skills through work history that is not just school based. List all school-based experience both paid and voluntary to show the breadth and range.
Application – References
The best person to make a judgement about your suitability to become a teacher is another teacher. Therefore discuss your application with schools where you have gained experience and where possible ask someone you have worked with in a school to be a referee.
