Application for a Primary Teacher
I would like to apply for the role of Primary Teacher as I have seen advertised in (where) and (when). (Usually you will be required to complete an application form for these kinds of roles).
I qualified as a Primary Teacher in (what year, from where – include your relevant qualifications)
I have always enjoyed working with children and have had previous experience working in a nursery environment which taught me to have a great deal of patience and tact when working with young children. During the Primary years, children learn so much relatively quickly and this is a lovely time period to witness how far they come.
When I worked in the nursery environment, I used to plan the days for the children and have had experience of working with the Pre School room as well as the younger rooms and I enjoyed this planning to make sure that we followed the learning criteria as outlined by the government but making this learning enjoyable for the children as I feel they always learn better when they are interested.
I find teaching very rewarding as well as challenging and this is why I wanted to pursue my career in teaching. I am a confident communicator and feel that I work well with both children and adults.
I have closed my CV with my application form and also my teaching qualifications and anything else that I have thought would be of interest to my application.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to hearing from you in due
