I am having great difficulity in finding an adminstration role with a local school.
My background is in housing - local authority , but I do have 10+ of administration experience .
I have applied for several jobs within local schools , but I have been told that my application form did not meet the criteria ( what is this criteria....... ) school experience which I don't have .
can anyone help.?
I had the same problem, having graduated with a Business Management Degree hoping to become a SBM i could not even get an interview for an administrator role, even though i had lots of admin experience and having been self employed for several years i have a vast knowledge of business, so i decided to ask at my own childrens school if i could volunteer in their office with the admin person to gain knowledge and experience within a school setting and using SIMS, luckily after only two months i got a job in a local primary school but only as assistant admin, however my SLT are very supportive and i recentley enrolled on the CSBM course which my school are funding, i would say go in and ask at your local schools because they are so busy some would be gratefull of the help and it gives you a learing platform.
