Teaching CV template

This page deals solely with showing you how to write a professional CV for any teaching position and at the same time demonstrates to you how to successfully sell yourself to prospective head teachers. Our examples will save you time and effort and make the whole process of putting together a professional CV less daunting.

The primary impression you make on a head master or hiring manager will be through your CV. So its important that you plan it beforehand, think carefully about it and work hard to produce one that is to the highest standards. Remember it is almost always the quality of your CV alone that will persuade a recruiter whether to invite you to a interview or not. It is not uncommon for inexperienced or under qualified teachers (who have excellent CVs) to get invited to interviews ahead of more capable candidates (who have poor CVs). 

The first point to understand is that there is no right way or wrong way of writing a CV. The only ‘correct’ CV is the one that gets you invited to interviews. If you have been sending in your curriculum vitae to vacancies but not getting any interview invitations then your CV almost certainly needs a makeover.

Tips when writing a teaching CV:

  • It should always focus on the requirements and attributes of the vacancy.
  • Mention your most relevant teaching experience.
  • Make sure your CV is no longer than two pages.
  • At the beginning write a ‘personal summary’ explaining your strongest points and why you feel you are a suitable candidate for the position.
  • Do not include your: photograph, age, martial position, sexual orientation, disability, hobbies.
  • Highlight any awards or certificates.
  • There is no need to give the full contact details of any references, Instead a simple statement like ‘References – available on request’ will suffice.
  • Once you have finished writing it have a friend proof read it for you.
  • If you have little or no teaching experience then instead focus on your future potential as a productive and valuable member of staff.
  • Explain why you want to be a teacher, your ideals, reasons and approach to teaching.
  • Do not clutter it with information, instead have it well spaced out and easy to read.
  • Try not to leave any gaps in your career history.
  • Avoid using jargon, slang or abbreviations. In the worst case scenario the reader may simply not understand them.
  • be positive and show yourself in a good light.

What to say about your teaching experience:

  • Explain how you prepare pupils for examinations.
  • Give examples of how you deal with disruptive and abusive school children.
  • How you organise and participate in extra curricular activities after school.
  • Boast about your ability to monitor a pupils learning development and take actions quickly to address any failings.
  • Show your behavioural and classroom management skills.

Other ways of applying for teaching positions
Of course CVs are not the only way to apply for teaching jobs, sometimes schools insist on applicants filling in application form or sending in applications letters. In one sense a CV is just a duplication of both of these methods.
