Dear Theo, I am currently overseas and spent 2 years working at an international school (primary) then got married and had a baby in September. I have been looking around at some options in Europe for my next job and applied for a couple of independent schools in the UK, without much hope of anything coming of it. However, by some amazing chance I have got an interview at one of them which coincides with my visit home next week. Now I am in a right panic though. I haven't actually done my NQT year and I don't know if this will be an option there or an issue. I have to teach a lesson too and I don't know if it's ok to email to ask questions about topics the students have done/ whether I should plan to use the IWB/ whether I will have time to set up beforehand etc. Or should I just prepare something I can do regardless? I am inclined to think that the most important thing will be my way with the children and maybe my planning, is this right? I honestly wasn't expecting to get anywhere with this and had pretty much resigned myself to scraping around the language schools for next year but it would be so good to be able to move back to the UK for a while. I really don't want to mess this up now and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks!
