Had an interview today for GTP (secondary) at Derby Uni. As people are asking on here for advice, thought I'd tell you about my experience. We began with being given an outline of the GTP programme, followed by a skills test which included spellings, grammar, maths and a written exercise. This was followed by a group interview, which began with each of us having to introduce ourselves, and our reasons for wanting to be a teacher. We then had to discuss as a group a topic of the interviewers choosing. In this case it was essentially our thoughts on what made a good teacher. Then came the individual interviews, which was essentially an opportunity to give some ideas and opinions on classroom management, current educational issues etc. As I say, this is only my experience, and I am not suggesting that all interviews/providers will follow this format. Just thought it may be of some use.
