    @mattisgeraldine - you asked for interview tips from a HT. You asked for 5, I have many more than that to offer you!

    Here, from the Professional Advice Hub, are the advice articles on preparing for interviews, with direct links.


    3. Preparing for Interview I suggest that you read these in this order

    Help, I've got an interview!*** The basic advice ***

    Teaching an observed lesson at interview

    Using mind-mapping for interviews*** The best-loved advice ***

    Tell us about yourself - dream or nightmare question?*** Read and note this ***

    Daft Interview Questions

    What shall I wear to the interview?

    Interviews – making a positive first impression

    How do you decide who to appoint?

    What excuse can I give for going to interview?

    Child Protection: the questions, NOT the answers

    A typical Child Protection Policy

    Two interviews and a dilemma

    Interview feedback - they blamed my experience, but they knew that when they shortlisted me!

    SLT interviews - possible questions

    In-tray exercises. Deputy Head

    Assistant Head interviews

    General interview questions

    Questions to ask at the end of your interview



    We have on Jobseekers a very nice tradition that when you actually got a job, you started a brand-new thread (not adding it to this one - a brand-new thread) where you told us your good news. You call it Dear Theo - I got that job! and this gives everyone a chance to congratulate you. It also gives them hope and inspiration for their own jobseeking, to see you successful.

    If you see one of these threads, make sure you congratulate people!

    So I will end by saying that we look forward to seeing your Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Best wishes

    This former headteacher agrees with Theo's advice (above).

    For anyone looking at it - pay special attention to her advice on 'questions to ask' at the end of the interview.
