Hi everyone, I have an interview coming up for a school in Thailand and in preparing for the interview I have been reading a number of threads on here. A few recommend taking a portfolio to interviews which isn't something I'm familiar with. I'd be interested to hear people's opinions on this: is this something which may make a candidate stand out or an unnecessary extra? Haven't been asked to take/prepare anything by the school interviewing me but realise this doesn't mean it isn't a good idea! And if a good idea - what sort of things should it include? I've looked at examples of teaching portfolios online and they seem very detailed - more than I'd expect there to be time to look at in an interview - and included CV (school already has this from my application) and statement of teaching philosophy just for starters. Most were long enough to have an index. Would it be worse to take a portfolio that didn't meet expectations than not have one at all? I'd also welcome any interview advice generally - am an experienced teacher but have very little interview experience. Many thanks in advance!
