    Hi there,

    I have an interview on Friday and am worried about them asking about data.
    Can anyone give me some advice on different HOD questions and how to answer
    data questions?

    No-one will tell you how to answer any type of question on here, since you need to be able to identify good ideas for yourself.

    Questions on data are most likely to be based upon how it can be used to improve student achievement.

    There is a great deal of interview advice - including some excellent pointers by @Middlemarch on mind maps - in the Professional Advice Hub.

    For data questions you need to be careful not to give any information about your current school that would not be publicly available; but I doubt if they would ask you a question that encouraged that.

    Interviews advice: I have included here links that may not be relevant to you, for the benefit of other posters.
