Teacher CV template

Whether you're just starting out as a teacher or have got a great track record behind you, our Teacher CV template is designed to help you get your next big break.

Try to include the most relevant and impressive information as early as possible. If you have any stand-out achievements, for example getting through to that one child that just wouldn't learn, put those in a section under your personal statement. Cross-reference them with the role they relate to.

Use a skills section to highlight your ability when applying for a teacher job. This is particularly useful if you haven't gained much experience. Concentrate on those valuable transferable skills plus those you gained through your studies.
