Dear Mr Dickens,
Re: Learning Support Assistant (Ref: PP24)
I’m writing to express my deep interest in the vacancy you have for a Learning Support Assistant at your College, which I came to know about earlier today from a parent of one of your students. My dream job is one where I can see the difference I am making, and I know that in the advertised role I can do just that.
This is a role that I have prepared for since I became interested in teaching many years ago. I started to spend my holidays doing work experience at nearby colleges from the age of 18, and I have now completed over 18 weeks of work experience to date. I am currently studying a QTS course which requires me to spend many weeks in an educational institution as a voluntary Teaching Assistant, something which is already benefiting me greatly.
My greatest passion in life is to help other people succeed; I can explain things well, and I have a lot of patience when dealing with students who have additional learning difficulties. I am creative with the activities I set for classes, as well as having a good sense of leadership and management. I can work well under pressure, for example when I had to teach children with behavioural problems or when organising classes at very short notice.
I am especially interested in working at Halifax College because of its excellent reputation; I have only heard good things about it, and it is an establishment I would be proud to be part of. I would be very pleased if you would consider my application and my request to discuss this further at an interview, as I would very much like the chance to show you how much benefit I could bring to your learning support team.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application for this role, and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
