Dear Theo - interview in SEN school help

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by elsielou79, Feb 14, 2011.

  1. I've got an interview on Wednesday in an SEN school teaching 14-19s. I'm secondary trained (Science) and am panicking I don't know enough about teaching in SEN.
    Have you any tips on questions I may be asked? The first stage of the interview is a 20 minute lesson (just about sorted!) and a short interview looking at teaching and learning. Then if I make it through that a more formal interview the day after.
    This is my first interview for 5 years so I'm terrified!

    OK, OK, stop panicking!
    Read the Interview clickables inside the Welcome thread for help on interviews in general. This should give you general advice that will help you be better prepared and so feel more confident.
    For specific help on SEN issues, I think you'd be better off going to the Special educational needs Forum and asking for help there.
    I am definitely no specialist there at all, I'm afraid.
    Best of luck!
