    Hi all!
    I have an interview next week so i'm really pleased as my teaching past has been a little bitty!
    Its for a HOD which i am currently but in a lovely school and better location! I've read the tips - thank you!
    However, .... the interview doesn't have a lesson to teach or pupil voice / pupil pannel and is just a presentation. I find this a little strange and have never come across this. I was lead to believe that how you interact with pupils is vital for roles within school (even roles with promotion).
    This this becoming more common or just a different schools take on the application process?

    Well done for the interview! Great going.
    I guess that it is just this. But in some ways they will be testing your teaching through the presentation . . .
    Looking forward to that new thread from you called Dear Theo - I got that job!
    Best wishes

    I would imagine it's because it's for a HoD position. Your teaching ablilities should be a 'given' for this level of job, though I've known many DH have to 'teach' a lesson or do an assembly etc.
