Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by clairebobs13, Oct 12, 2011.

  1. Dear Theo,
    I was offered three interviews on Monday - yesterday's was only an agency, but they contacted me off a site where I'd posted my CV. Have one I really want on Friday and have already planned my lesson - I always seem to fall down somewhere though.
    Do you have any advice about tackilng behaviour on an interview observation? My behavioural management isn't bad, but on interview day it feels a bit odd, not knowing how 'strict' to be, or the sanction/rewards system Have looked on the site but can't find any information about it.
    Do I go in guns blazing, calm and collected...do I tackle lateness and how? Do I move children if they aren't getting on with their tasks?.........
    Any advice will help.
    P.S. I'm chuffed to little mint balls ;)[​IMG]

    Well, presumably your lesson will be observed, so generally behaviour is less of a problem, and if it isn't and the children misbehave in front of SMT, it might not be an ideal school to work in anyway.
    Definitely <u>not</u> 'all guns blaring' (recipe for disaster that one) and the old 'Firm but fair' would seem to be the way to go. Try to 'catch them 'being good' especially with a child who tries to show off, praise good behaviour consistently to let them know your expectations.
    Lateness unlikely to be a problem as you'll probably be taken to the class and personally I stick with any 'normal' seating arrangements.
    Best of luck with that interview! Fingers crossed.
