Dear Theo and everyone, I had my first interview and got the job and i don't think i would have without all the advice i received on here from Theo, Lara mlf, Folly fairy and others (apologies for not naming everyone!). Also much good luck from marlin and lara, and other well wishers. Top tips i have received are The executive summary in application. Preparing for the interview and having examples you want to get in. Planning the lesson (with help from PIMP your lesson book). Many thanks everyone, it is such a relief and to think that 3 weeks ago i was desparing of ever being a teacher. Keep hope everyone else, it will happen!
