    Ive just sent my ucas application off for PGCE/School direct this September - it is a late application for personal reasons out of my control but there is still lots of time left before September deadline!

    Anyway i was wondering....interviews! How can they take place with university and school closures?!!

    Hope it will all be ok!

    Is anyone else in same situation?

    Yes, Skype is the way forward. Top tips. Have the light on you not behind you. Don’t look into the screen. Sit back a little for a head and shoulders shot. Be in a room with carpeting not hard flooring. Makes your voice much better.

    One of my placement via SCITT is postponed indefinitely, but I have Skype/Zoom interviews for other PGCE placements.

    However, I still work at the school where I work as a TA. I just hope schools will reopen in September. Best of luck with your interviews Robbie and Lesley.
