GTP - Interview - Current Educational Issues

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by ashleigh1989, Apr 3, 2012.

  1. I have an interview for GTP on 20th April 2012, we will be asked as a group to talk about a current educational issue. Will be given the topic or have to think of one ourselves?
    I have a few ideas: new EYFS Framework
    new OfSTED criteria - role of TAs etc, assessment, marking

    I would be grateful of any help as I really want to be successful with this interview.
    Thanks,
    Ashleigh

  3. Which key stage interests you? You could have a look at info on the new phonics/reading tests for 6 year olds, you'll find info in press or BBC news website. Good luck!

    Sometimes the group discussion is open ended so it is left to the participants to come up with the topic but in most instances the topic is already set. Read around the subject and don't be afraid to take a wider view. Good sources are of course TES plus any of the other educational supplements and blogs you find. Always try to relate the topic back to the classroom and the effect it would/could have on pupils.
