Application for the role of High School Teacher
I would like to apply for the role of High School Teacher which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I qualified as Teacher status in (what year) and (from where if applicable) and since then I have been working (as what and where – this is where you can provide more details about what you have done, who you have taught etc). I have my CRB check and have had this since XXX, please find enclosed a copy of my CRB.
I have a very patient nature and enjoy working with children of any age but in the particularly important educational years in high school. I like to see the differences that you see when a child joins high school to when they leave and how they have developed and changed over the years. It is a real pleasure and makes all the hard work worth it.
I am a very organised person, I like to plan my lessons well and make them interesting for the pupils. I have always been interested in (what subject do you teach) and therefore I think it helps being passionate about a particular subject.
I have enclosed my CV which details my relevant working experience and qualifications. Should you have any interest in my skills and experiences, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
