Teacher resume template

Whether you are a recent graduate looking for your first teaching job or an experienced professional looking for the next step in your career, a great resume is a must-have to get your foot in the door and secure an interview. Depending on how long it’s been since you last applied for a job, the content and style employers expect in a resume might have changed.

Teacher cover letter

Like a resume, your cover letter can make or break your application to a teaching job. While many a teacher has overlooked this crucial step and submitted their application for a job without a cover letter, that misses a great opportunity to highlight how your background and experience makes you the best candidate for the job, as well as giving you a chance to express yourself beyond the constraints of a standard resume.

My name is Matt, I am an educator with a decade of school-based experience and hold a Masters of Educational Leadership with Distinction (M.Ed). For a school-based application to be successful, it is all about the formula for structuring and writing selection criteria examples. It’s important to have a clear vision of this, which will not only get you to interview, but help position you in front of other candidates in order to give you the best chance for success. Through my knowledge, understanding and experience in helping clients across multiple Australian education systems, I help teachers deliver their best possible application and prepare them for the interview phase, coaching them to build confidence in understanding that they have the skills necessary to be successful. I look forward to helping you secure your dream teaching job! Please note: I am unable to assist teachers that I have a personal relationship with, are known to me or who are applying for a position at my current school or local area.
