Do you review job applications for DP and AP Roles?

Yes - I do! This is a service that I offer in The Career Accelerator Programme. The job application is a test of a candidates perseverance, writing and communication skills and can take 10+ days to complete and years to build the leadership skills. 🤩 You'll want to pull out all of the stops to ensure you get shortlisted.

Because I give premium support to my clients wanting reviews and because of the work involved in the review stage - The Career Accelerator Programme is the ONLY place that I review Senior Leadership Job Applications. Learn more about it here.

Do you recommend bringing in a portfolio or extra information to my leadership interview?

The purpose of your interview is to orally articulate why you are the best person for the job. For senior leadership interviews, some boards request that teachers do a short presentation (often on their vision for the role). This gives the panel an idea of your ability to present and also your idea of how you'd like to change and lead the school in the future. 

Besides that, bringing in extra information for them to read is not recommended as it was not requested and will distract the panel members from listening to your interview answers.
