Mr Carl Mackay
Head of Learning Support
Hill Valley School
84 Westfield Road
South Molton

Dear Mr Mackay,

Re: Teaching Assistant (#AS843)

I was absolutely delighted to see an opening for a Teaching Assistant position on your School’s website. I wish to apply for this post, as I have a keen interest in this job and a career in teaching is something that I am eager to pursue.

I believe that I am incredibly compatible for this role as I have graduated with a 2:1 Honours degree in Childhood Education from the University of London and completed the Teaching Assistant Level 3 qualification from South Birmingham College. Additionally, I have also volunteered at youth centres and secondary schools to gain experience in working with children for the last few months, something which has truly been a life-changing experience and has further cemented my aspirations for a career in working with young people.

I possess excellent communication skills which enable me to communicate clearly and effectively with people of all ages and different backgrounds. I have a friendly and outgoing personality, and I am exceedingly passionate about encouraging, helping and supporting pupils to realise their full potential and succeed in life.

I am very interested in joining your school because of the modern approach to teaching that has been adopted at Hill Valley School. It would be an honour to be part of your learning support team, and I firmly believe that my contribution will be invaluable to your students.

I have enclosed my CV along with this covering letter, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions; I am available anytime to meet with you to discuss this role and my application in more detail.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Mary Greene.

Head teacher

Dear Ms Stewart,

Re: Teaching Assistant (Job Ref: #24GH)

I was recently referred to you by Miss Karen Smith, who informed me of a vacant Teaching Assistant role at Cherry Orchard Primary and I am writing out of interest to apply. I have a lively interest in education and would appreciate the opportunity to work with you.

I have completed my three-year Early Years Foundation Degree course at Worcestershire College, and I am currently working towards my Level 3 NVQ in Childcare and Education. Throughout my time in studying, I have acquired a great deal of knowledge about working with children which has prepared me to begin my clear and committed career path in teaching. However, please do not be deterred from my lack of first-hand teaching experience, as I can assure you that I am a quick learner, motivator and passionate individual with the necessary calm and collected mindset required for this role.

I am a punctual, organised and goals-oriented individual with an excellent track record of meeting deadlines and working under pressure. My excellent communication skills, combined with my passion for helping young people succeed; make me the ideal candidate for this position.

I would love to be part of the teaching support team at Cherry Orchard Primary because the school has an outstanding reputation for education and student support. The efforts that your administrative and teaching staff provide to maintain such a positive environment are admirable.

I am eager to talk with you about the contribution I could make to your school, and showcase my ability to inspire and motivate young learners. If you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me on the above telephone number or E-mail address at a time of your convenience. I look forward to personally meeting with you to discuss my application for this role.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Paul Glover.
