Hello everyone,

I have received lots of standard application forms and letters of applications from you to look over. I hope I got back to everyone eventually, if I didn’t just email me. The standard of the application forms is very high, so I am quite sure everyone will get sorted one way or another.


I noticed the letters of applications varied greatly. A very helpful principal gave me the following advice last year regarding such letters:


1. State why you are writing:

Dear chairperson,

I am writing with regards to the advertisement of a teaching position in your school, as advertised on the Education Posts website. It is with great enthusiasm that I write to apply for the position of mainstream class teacher in Scoil —-.


2. State who you are:

As noted on my application form, My name is ——– and I am an English and Law graduate from UCD. I completed my teacher training with Hibernia College and I graduated with an honours degree.


3. State why you are applying for this job:

Refer to school website and see how you can link your hobbies/interests to the school.


4. State what you have to offer this school:

My application form highlights specific examples of what I have to offer your establishment, including a willingness to run after school activities,  book clubs, sports clubs etc. ( be unique!)


5. My greatest strengths include:


6. I would love to interview for this position to discuss further what I can offer your school.


Kind regards,
