What Makes A Great Application for KingsGate?

We appreciate that sometimes it can be challenging to know what schools want you to focus on in your application. To ensure that you have the best chance of winning an advertised position, we want to offer you as much insight into the process as possible. We trust the sections below help you construct a robust application. 

What We Look At

What We Look at First

When you apply for a teaching position at KingsGate, the very first thing we will look at will be your online application. We check the following.

  • Has it been fully completed?
  • Has there been proper thought and consideration been given to the Section 2? question "Your Journey with Christ". This part of the application is essential to a Christian School. We acknowledge that we are all at different stages in our walk with Christ, but we want to hear about where you are with yours and how you've journeyed to where you are today. 

What We Look at Next -Your Covering Letter

Your covering letter is crucial because it tells us if you have taken the time to find out a little about who we are as a school, how your skills and experience would align with our vision and mission, and how you would be an asset to our school and our community. You would be surprised at how easy it is to identify an applicant that has submitted a generic covering letter that they have sent out to multiple schools.  So, to avoid your covering letter falling into this category, we ask that you pay attention to the following. 

  • Visit our school's website 
  • Visit our schools Facebook page.
  • Convey to us in your letter that you know something about us.
  • Convery to us in your letter how your skills and experience align to our culture and our future.
  • Do not address it to "whom it make concern", rather address it to our Principal, Mr Jared Stein.
  • The covering letter does not have to be a novella, but we must hear your heart. We would suggest that one side of an A4 would be sufficient, but we also appreciate that for some, this may not be enough. An applicant certainly will not be disregarded if this is the case.

What We Look at Last - Your Curriculum Vitae

If your application has been fully completed and your covering letter conveys your genuine interest in the position and our school, then we will make time to read your Curriculum Vitae thoroughly. Remember, it does become evident to an appointments committee if an applicant has sent out a generic CV. Keep in mind that we are a Christian School, so your CV should embrace your Christianity too.  To ensure we get to see the best of you, your CV should include the following where applicable.

  • Your work experience – period employed, position, duties, and reason/s for leaving.
  • Your formal qualifications (including dates).
  • Your experience relevant to the position advertised.
  • Other relevant training.
  • Your subject strengths.
  • Any extra-curricular school activities you lead.

We hope this helps shape your application with us we look forward to welcoming you as part of our team in the near future.

All the best with your application and may God continue to bless you in all your endeavors. 

From the staff at KingsGate School.
