Learn to write a Teaching CV that stands out from the crowd

If you’re ready to start applying for your first teaching roles, it’s important to make sure your CV is up to scratch. You’ll want to ensure that your teaching CV gives an overview of your personality and skills, and shows recruiting staff that you’re the best person for the job. 

Here at i-teachers, we specialise in supporting graduates looking for long-term teaching experience through our Step Into Teaching graduate scheme, and we know a lot about what makes for a winning CV! Our education consultants, Demi and Jess, have created a video to talk you through each key component that your CV should include, along with some top teaching CV tips to set you up for success.

What makes a great teaching CV?

In the video above, you’ll hear our expert education consultants discussing the main sections you should aim to include within your teaching CV. These are:

  • A personal profile to introduce yourself, communicate your personality, background, and your enthusiasm for working in education.
  • An overview of your previous education, including the subject(s) you studied and the qualifications you obtained.
  • An overview of your previous work experience, starting with the most relevant. This should include any key responsibilities you had, personal or professional achievements, and how the role developed your skills.
  • Any additional training or core skills that you feel are relevant to the role.
  • Some information about your personal interests and hobbies. It’s good to tell the recruiting staff what you’re passionate about and build a full picture of yourself.
