How We Write Teaching Job Applications

The approach to teaching resumes is specific. 

We want to address scaffolding, differentiated teaching and align your capabilities with the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) domains.

Teachers are faced with overwhelming competition for urban roles, a market of teachers subject to move at semesterly and yearly intervals, and rigid application processes that vary state to state.

When putting together teaching resumes, we ensure that we are well-versed with each state’s unique application requirements, and for private schools, we gain insight into the application requirement and guidelines.

We will work with you to gain the right information specific the field, year levels and your unique pedagogical approach in relation to the jobs that you will be specifically looking at.

We find that our strengths with teaching resumes are the very specific questions we pose to teaching clients about identifying students with learning disabilities, how a teacher gets to know their students, what their most innovative program was, and how the provided leadership to other teachers.

However, whilst a resume is your important snapshot of skills and forms your overarching career narrative, key to your application (and far more important, in fact) are going to be your responses to the selection criteria.

Teachers Selection Criteria

Our approach to selection criteria is systemic across the board, and the structure applies to all (English teachers can appreciate this!): Situation, Task, Approach and Result, best known as STAR.

Where the approach differs is in the targeted stories we ask to flesh out the best responses.

Questions to ask yourself for your resume and selection criteria, are:

  • How do you work and collaborate with your colleagues?
  • What was your most innovative program?
  • How did you form a relationship with parents?
  • What was the most challenging student you were faced with?
  • What ICT tools do you use in teaching?
  • How have you pursued professional development to enhance your teaching capabilities?
