I just wanted to write a blogpost explaining a new part of Irish Primary Teacher – IPT Courses which is a place where I’ll be creating online courses for teachers. The aim is to create practical, informative courses with realistic advice and ideas that teachers can implement in their classrooms.

The first course is on applying for jobs and preparing for interviews. It will take a minimum of 2.5 hours to complete but you can do a little bit whenever suits you and then come back later etc. There is no deadline to complete the course! You can sign up now and then wait until the summer to complete the course.

It includes


  • Teaching Applications Overview (where and when are jobs advertised, what jobs can I apply for, types of contracts, panels, how to apply, types of schools, what do I need to apply for teaching applications, standard application form, online application forms, other documents)
  • Standard Application Form
  • Letter of Application
  • C.V.
  • Other documents
  • Interview process
  • Tips for the interview
  • How to prepare for the interview
  • Interview questions
  • Re – interviewing

There is a downloadable document where you will get the key points from each chapter of the course and then a video for each part of the course too where I share tips, ideas and advice.
