There was a lot of interest on my Instagram (rebecca.the.irish.teacher) of a sample cover letter for teaching abroad, so I decided to make one.
A cover letter is the school’s first impression of you as a person, professional and potential employee.
Even though you may be applying for lots of jobs, ensure you make your Cover letter stands out from the crowd. Read their mission and vision, read their objectives as a school and mention these things in your cover letter and how you are going prosper and flourish in their school.
For this sample cover letter, I have clicked on to a job offer on TESjobs and read their ethos, mission and vision statements. I quote from them and make my cover letter look very individual to their school in hope to make it ‘stand out’.
There is no set length required for a cover letter but you need to refer to their ethos and mission statements if you want to make them believe you would like a job at their school.
A detailed cover letter that’s specific to a school’s ethos, while providing information of you as a teacher.
