    Hi

    I have an interview next week at a catholic school and was wondered if anyone had some sample questions that i may be asked along with the generic teacher interview questions.

    I currently work in a catholic school and i'm not catholic!
    I was asked how i would uphold the catholic ethos - things like be respectful for the faith, take part and lead prayers etc. I said that i would research and ask for support if i wasn't clear on something.
    Depends how catholic the school is to be honest - mine is about 80% catholic so a very strong ethos!
    Good luck

    Well done on getting an interview!
    Go to the Welcome thread and read the Interview clickables inside for general tips and questions.
    And read this:
    Dear Theo et al - Evidence of Christian commitment
    We have a tradition here that when somebody gets a job, they start a brand-new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job! We look forward to yours!
    Best wishes

  6. Hi I had an interview in a catholic instituition today, still awaiting reply.
    Just be prepared for the main question "Are you comfortable/happy to uphold the catholic ethos?' and 'How would you uphold the catholic ethos?'
    If you are catholic these are fairly easy to answer lol but if not stick to good morals, promoting charity (check what the school does any local/international causes they support?) keeping good ties with all, maintaining a family/community based atmosphere, mutual respect with all, good manners, kindness etc
    Stick to the schools particular ethos eg do they talk about a family based atmosphere etc. Good luck!
