So I am looking at going to FT work this year or definitely next.
The thing is that I have been a FT SAM and have no experience or qualifications at all....

I'm sure there would be plenty to put in a cover letter.
- why you're looking for work
- why you want the job they're offering
- skills you have that apply to the job, for example: time management, organization, conflict resolution (if you have more than one child and they argue ), plus practical skills that would be of use, eg familiarity with Microsoft office etc if it's relevant
- what sort of hours your looking for, ie school hours with the option of flexibility one or 2 days a week if you have someone who can look after the kids/after school care etc
- values that you have that would benefit the company such as reliable, punctual, willing to learn new skills, good phone manner etc
Have a think about yourself honestly and start jotting down all your positive characteristics. It's quite hard as we're always the first to tear ourselves down. Or maybe ask your loved ones around you what they think your "pros" are. You'll be surprised

a cover letter can be just your details. age sex, marital status, interests hobbies, previous work exp. contact details . that is all I would think is necessary. marie

Have a look at example cover letters online.
My cover letters tend to be a few paragraphs:
-greeting, purpose of the letter (applying for job X)
-address how my skills/knowledge/experience meets the needs of the job (I usually write a couple of short paragraphs, addressing 2 main things)
-mention follow up (that I look forward to hearing from/meeting with them, or to contact me for extra information)
-thanks, and farewell

Keep it simple, first paragraph mention the job you are applying for.
Then maybe a paragraph about how you qualify, this doesn't need to be work history. Maybe you have volunteered or helped out at school.
Finally a sentence or 2 stating you look forward to hearing from them.
Try googling for heaps of examples.
