    Dear Theo,
    I have been asked to prepare a presentation, to be given during my formal interview, about my committment and passion for teaching.
    I'm really not sure where to go with this. Do I just talk to them? Do I create a powerpoint? I'm stuck!
    Also if I did use a powerpoint is it ok to include pictures of myself engaged in tasks with the children. Obvioulsy childrne who have been given photo permission by their parents.
    I'm really not sure what the best course is here! Help please!

    Well done for getting that interview - great news!
    Do go and look at the interview advice in the Welcome thread here on the JobSeekers Forum - there is a link to a thread about presentations in general.
    As for which is better - it's what you feel most comfortable with. You will want, in particular, to be comfortable with the technology and not be nervous. If you go for not PP, you could always have printed pictures, perhaps even laminated, to hold up. It's likely to be a smallish panel.
    Basic rule for a presentation is to have an intro, middle and summing up. Often called: Tell'em what you're going to tell'em. Tell'em. Tell'em what you told'em.
    But the main thing, the main thing, is to let your passion show through here!
    Best of luck!
