Got an interview!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by anon3407, Dec 6, 2011.

  1. Got an interview on Friday for a Graduate LSA position at a local school. Have to teach a 25 minute lesson to a group of year 8 pupils which develops higher order thinking skills! That's the only brief I have been given!!!! (Considering to apply for the job you just had to be a graduate (i.e. not really have teaching experience) I'm bloomin' glad I've done the PGCE and know what higher order thinking skills are)).

    Well done for getting that interview! The interview tips - and some LA questions - are in the Welcome thread at the top.
    Fingers crossed that soon you'll be starting your own new thread Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Gosh and we're led to believe a LSA is a 'lesser position'! ?
     

  6. Apparently so! At least for the teaching jobs I've have interviews for I've had an idea about what to do. When I got that brief today I was a bit like EEEAAKKK (went to look up Blooms Taxonomy). Apparently after they've seen the lesson they'll let me know if I'm through to the interview stage!

    Will let you all know how I get on of course.
