Dear Sara, I qualified as a primary teacher last year and have had a couple of interviews but no luck getting a job yet! I have been supply teaching for the last year and had an interview yesterday for a ks1 post. However, the Head said that my portfolio was rather 'lack lustre' and that the work it included was quite bland - I am very creative but the schools I did my training in had quite an emphasis on worksheets so that's all I have as examples of work which is very frustrating and I admit, boring. I also, rather stupidly, did not take pictures of the creative displays I made during my traing. This school I had an interview for is very creative in it's curriculum and the Head said I should use examples of work I have taught as a supply teacher - can I do this? If not, what child's work could I use? Also do you have any tips about making my portfolio more interesting/creative? Many thanks!
