Well....I have another interview for HoD...at the last interview - as I said on another thread - my answers came across as waffly. I tend to do this when I'm nervous. I have also been accused of being 'quirky', because sometimes my nerves mean that I make comments that make the interviewers laugh - I guess this must sound unprofessional, because at one interview a couple years ago, I was told; we thought we'd have great fun working with you, but we were not sure whether or not you could do the job. I liked the comment from Lara about giving 'short to the point' answers, then asking if I'd answered the questions, which I will try this time. Are there any tips from anyone else? Secondly, the group that I will teaching at interview is likely to range from A*-F. I'm worried that I will spend too much time on preparing a 'fantastic' lesson, to efficiently differentiate, at the expense of preparing for the interview. I feel that I have done this in the past, because I like things to be perfect. I don't have any issues with differentiation, even though the best of us can find it difficult - I'm just concerned that I won't get the balance right between preparation for the lesson and for the interview. I sometimes feel that I can pick the winning candidate at the beginning of an interview day. At my last interview, the way the winning person conducted herself was brilliant. I guess I have to use her as a glowing example, and yet, I felt that I was ready for that job. It would be great to have any advice from people, but also, I just wanted to get this all off my chest.
