I am an international applicant, and I am applying for a teaching job in the UK. In the online application there is a section for competency evidence questions, and there is another section for uploading a supporting statement. In the competency evidence part, I already describe my qualifications with examples regarding the position, I don’t know what exactly include in the supporting statement to avoid the repetition. I also wanted to know if the supporting statement is the same as the cover letter. Thank you for your help, M
If you're not sure, the best place to search for answers would be
- Any available FAQ for the application / job opening application in the website.
- Any support / helpline contact for the organization (or any point of contact received through them)
You can also ask someone who is experienced in your field, if they had gone through the same process, about the details or particulars.
In my view, the competency evidence will be your experience certificates (work / training / learning - as applicable in your role / industry) and supporting statement is mostly references (who can confirm some things which you've stated in the application) - but that's my view and I do not have firsthand experience in this process/flow.
