Merry Christmas all. I am hoping to pick your brains whilst we are in good spirits, if I may? I am currently acting HOD (Drama) due to the HODs unexpected leave. Naturally, the school have advertised for a new HOD and I have applied and been invited to interview straight after the Christmas break (details of the day to be confirmed by letter). I have been HOY previously but haven't ever applied for a HOD role. My questions are: -what could I prepare for an interview? (I am expecting to talk about my vision for the department, innovation and my own professional development and experience - is there anything else?) -what would you expect to see in a HOD lesson i.e. anything different to a normal lesson? -I currently teach all the KS4 and 5 classes - could I be asked to teach my own class in an interview or is this unlikely due to being unfair on the other candidates? Thank you in anticipation! Is.
