    Honestly, it could be absolutely anything and the worst thing you could do is trawl for other people's experiences and then try to prepare for them - because that could well be a colossal waste of valuable preparation time.
    Aim to be on top of your game in terms of school improvement as well as the aspects of this role and remember - just because the job is advertised as CPD etc, it doesn't mean the head will keep you in it, as heads do like to appoint flexible people to their SLT, so that roles can be rotated or reassigned.
    Therefore - the task might actually be nothing to do with the role advertised.

    PS Please don't send messages in upper case (capital letters) - it's SHOUTING.
    Similarly, in the line of your professional work (e.g. preparing a Powerpoint presentation) ensure that your text is in the appropriate mix of upper and lower case letters.
     
  5. THANKS FOR THIS.
    IT IS PRETTY MUCH AS I EXPECTED. I AM MAKING SURE I AM REALLY WELL-PREPARED FOR THE INTERVIEW AND WILL DEAL WITH THE TASK WHEN IT ARISES.

    BECKY

  7. A polite request - but do you think you could just speak in plain English please?

    And research has shown that writing entirely in upper case is more difficult to read.
    It's not just me being picky, you see.

    Point taken and sorry for going in hard. I think the main piece of etiquette that you missed was the bit about being nice to newbies. Have a good day, good to cross light swords once in a while. End of thread.

    Call me an old nitpicker, but I don't believe I was in the least bit 'not nice' to the OP.

    Fair enough but you know what is sometimes said; between the intention and the reality falls the shadow. Now let peace reign upon this robust, feisty and fair forum. Good day to you MM.
