  1. Dear Theo,
    I have an interview for an Assistant Head post in a primary school and I was wondering:
    1) What sort of questions the Student School Council would ask?
    2) What a Data Analysis task might comprise of?

  2. In my last interview...
    the student council asked lovely questions eg What would you bring to our school? Do you like children? What is your favourite subject to teach and why, pretty straight forward really.
    The Data one can be anything - Raise Online or General Data in the format that the school use - not really sure on that one!

    Tip for next time: put Dear Theo on the outside, in the title, as I don't always have time to open every thread, just on the off-chance it says Dear Theo inside. (Been doing a Moving into SLT seminar this morning for people applying for AHT, by coincidence!)

    Well done on getting an interview!
    And another tip, to save waiting around for me to get home and answer, is to use the search function, or just browse a bit. Much faster!

    That lot should keep you busy for a bit!
    If you look inside the Welcome thread, there is an Interview Tips clcikable there with lots of advice too.
    Very best of luck. I look forward to you starting a new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job!
