Interview for AST post - what questions?

    I have an interview next Wednesday for an AST post in a secondary school (not
    the one I work in at the moment). I haven't been given any details of
    what exactly they want an AST to focus on, so I'm assuming that will be
    discussed at interview based on each applicant's skills and
    experience. I'm not currently an AST but I do have some relevant
    experience which I'll obviously be able to talk about. I can guess a lot
    of the questions they're likely to ask, but can anyone suggest any
    questions beyond the standard interview questions for any teaching job,
    or give me any tips that would help me? I'll also have to teach an hour
    lesson - I know they'll be expecting to see AfL, differentiation and
    all the standard stuff any observer would be looking for, but is there
    anything else they're likely to be looking for specifically in terms of
    the AST role?
    I know the future of ASTs is a bit up in the air at the moment, so I'll be asking them some questions about that when I get the opportunity!
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Ask them how the post is funded, and how long they are willing to fund it for....
