One of my favourite things as Headteacher is recruitment and it is this time of year when applications go into overdrive.
As I am currently going through this process, I thought it would be a good idea to share some suggestions and tips for applicants to avoid.
Essentially, applying for a job is a competition. Albeit, one where the rules are not necessarily made explicit. Every Headteacher will be looking for different things from their applicants, but one thing is certain - candidates need to make themselves stand out for the correct reasons.
