About Selection Criteria It is not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required. - Winston Churchill One of the most important aspects of applying for a job is addressing the selection criteria. Selection criteria are specific job requirements which the employer has identified in his job description as being significant in the position and they will be used by the selection committee to assess your application. Statement Addressing the Selection Criteria The Statement Addressing the Selection Criteria is a document where each essential and desirable criterion is a heading with a paragraph of information following it. Each paragraph should sketch out what you have done in your major studies, in your current and previous jobs and in your extracurricular activities, which demonstrate that you meet the selection criteria. An application is not short listed if it does not demonstrate how the candidate meets the criteria. Essential and Desirable Selection Criteria Selection criteria are divided into two categories, essential criteria and desirable criteria. If a candidate does not meet the essential criteria, he or she will not be short-listed for an interview. Examples of Selection Criteria Here are some examples of selection criteria: 1. Demonstrated supervisory skills
2. Well-developed administrative skills
3. Demonstrated ability to use CALL software
4. Knowledge of contemporary language teaching methodologies
5. Demonstrated written and oral communication skills
