Well done forgetting that interview. I think that Learning Mentor jobs are really interesting. Two things here. Draw up a quick list of important points about being a mentor, and skills you have that will enable you to deliver this. A sort of executive summary of the job, really. Have that in your head if not in your pocket! Then for the presentation, remember the rule: Tell'em what you're going to tell'em; tell'em it; tell'em what you've told'em. In other words a clear intro, a main part and then a rounding- up at the end. Go and read the interview clickables inside the Welcome thread for hints on preparation. And to keep you away from the tele this afternoon, here's an exercise. Twenty mins prep and then 10 mins saying it aloud: How would you raise the achievement of a 15 year-old boy who has poor attendance because he is the primary carer of his Mother who has MS. Off you go . . . Good luck! _____________________________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
