What should I include in my CV?
Organise your CV so that it outlines your achievements. Include your employment and educational history as well as any continuing education or voluntary work you may have done.
Your CV should be no more than four pages. List your professional work experience from your most recent position backwards. Do not list vacation employment or non-professional employment unless it is directly relevant to teaching.
If you are a recent graduate with minimal experience, expand on your student teaching rounds or any teacher's aide work you may have done.
Keep jargon and acronyms down to a minimum and wherever possible refer to your experience in generic and universal terms. If you must use overseas terminology to illustrate some aspect of your CV then include a brief explanatory key.
Most initial appointments in the UK system tend to be for classroom teachers. It is important to highlight your classroom expertise even if you have experience at an executive level.
