Got a job after 6 interviews!!!! Interview questions enclosed

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by wheezysteve, May 31, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,
    I wanted to first of all thank the forum for its pages and pages of helpful articles and advice. I had been on 6 previous interviews and felt so dismayed - being told I was excellent but they hired someone with experience. I have found a school that wanted to take a gamble with me as an NQT in September and to teach the very first class of A-Level Accouting; which is the subject I love.

    The interview questions I was asked were (from what I can remember):
    <ol>[*]What qualifications/experience make you qualified to teach this subject at this level?[*]How would you describe your classroom management?[*]How would you make use of assessment and data to show pupils progress?[*]If you suspected a fellow teacher was having inappropriate contact with a pupil, what would you do?[*]What would be the difference between a good and outstanding lesson?[*]How do you know the line between developing positive relationships with your pupils and going overboard (was asked differently but can't remember exact wording)?[*]How would you develop and maintain relationships with parents, and their role with your pupils?</ol>Thats is basically. To be honest I was also getting very disheartened with the interview process, thinking I could not get a job; like something was wrong with me. But I am thankful this school gave me an opportunity - and I made use of experiences off of here to help and guide me.

    • how do you use other adults in the classroom?
    • How would you deal with an anxious parent?
    • What is the most rewarding thing about teaching?
    • How do you ensure the safeguarding of children?
    Couldn't believe it- Just 5 questions at the whole interview!
