Interview lesson

    Hello everyone

    I have an interview and would like to use a lesson I have taught before that worked really well...

    What are your opinions of using tasty treats in interview lessons to help students associate them with different theories?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ooh, dangerous territory there if you're talking 'food' treats.

    How would you know about any potential allergies? (How up-to-date is your epipen training? )

    Might there be a 'Healthy Eating' policy in the school which prohibits certain types of food?

    Could you adapt the lesson to have pictures of the treats for the word association, which would bypass any potential problems?

    Good points! I think I'll use pictures instead!!

    Just to add to this discussion, you could always put a note in your lesson plan that if you knew the class better you would have used actual food to stimulate the learning. I'm pretty sure the panel would be impressed. :)

    Great idea- just check the school hasn't got any objections in a 'Healthy Eating' policy. Check on the website.

    Some wise words above!

    I'll just congratulate you on getting that interview, and show you where to find the interview advice.

    Daft Interview Questions

    What shall I wear to the interview?

    Interviews – making a positive first impression

    How do you decide who to appoint?

    What excuse can I give for going to interview?

    Child Protection: the questions, NOT the answers

    A typical Child Protection Policy

    Two interviews and a dilemma

    Interview feedback - they blamed my experience, but they knew that when they shortlisted me!

    SLT interviews - possible questions

    In-tray exercises. Deputy Head

    Assistant Head interviews

    General interview questions

    Questions to ask at the end of your interview

    On here we have a very nice tradition that when you actually get a job, you started a brand-new thread (not adding it to this one - a brand-new thread) where you told us your good news. You call it Dear Theo - I got that job! and this gives everyone a chance to congratulate you. It also gives them hope and inspiration for their own jobseeking, to see you successful.

    Make sure you congratulate someone when you see a thread like that!

    So I will end by saying that we look forward to seeing your Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Best wishes
