Help! Interview written task

Discussion in 'Primary' started by lan4, May 23, 2011.

  1. Hi, wondering if anyone has ever had to do a written task in an interview? I’ve just got an interview for a FS job and have been told part of the interview will be a written task. Has anyone had any experience? I really don’t know what to expect.

    I remember once having to copy out a paragraph in cursive handwriting. At the time I had no idea what that was, and given that I don't join most of my letters, I just joined what I could. lol. Didn't get the job.
     
  4. I had one a couple of weeks ago where I had to write what sorts of things I would put in my first class newsletter to introduce myself to the parents and talk about my aims for the year ahead.
     
  5. I once had to write a list of all the things I would have to think about doing before the first day if I got the job, so classroom organisation, display, planning, finding out about the children etc. It turned out quite a long list and I had very good feedback on it (but didn't get the job).
     
  6. Mine was looking at writing samples, levelling them, sorting them into abilities and making a Literacy action plan based on my findings.

    The written task is usually specific to the job you apply for- mine was a phase leader app.
    If it is just a class teacher job they will have something that relates to your day to day activities- e.g levelling, planning, giving feedback, writing to parents,newsletters etc
    Dont worry-just do what you normally do

    Or they could be checking that your spelling and grammar are up to scratch - can't be assumed these days. I think it's a good idea.

    I had one where I was shown big book of The Gingerbread man and either had to do literacy plan or say how I would plan cross curricular links for a topic on this (forget which). Good luck.
