Application Forms

How you complete an application form is important

There are a few guidelines you should follow:

- read and carefully follow ALL the instructions

- ask for help if there is anything you don't understand

- practise on photocopies or blank paper and make sure your answers are neat and clear, with no errors - spelling or grammar

- write out the actual form lightly in pencil first

- check you've completed all the relevant parts

- take a photocopy in case you get an interview

- send off the form in time for the closing dates

- think ABC - Accurate, Brief and Clear

Information required on application forms

- Forms require information such as personal details, education, qualifications, work experience and referees.

- There is also usually a place for adding a further information/supporting statement - this is information to support your application, in other words, why the nursery should choose you for the job.

- Think about what the nursery is looking for from applicants - the requirements of the job. Give examples of how you demonstrate the necessary interests, skills, experience, personal characteristics, etc.
