Interview preparation

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by GemmaBKent, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. Well.... I have secured my first interview. It's the first application I've submitted so I'm somewhat surprised!
    I'm currently a PGCE student (11 - 18 Maths) so I've no experience at all of interviews for teaching posts. I've not seen the details of the interview but I'm assuming that I will be expected to teach part of, if not a complete lesson?
    What I'd find really useful are some guidance/tips on what sort of questions might arise during the interview itself. Are there any websites, or links within this site, that might offer some help.
    Thanks in advance.
  2. Just click on the pinned post at the top of this forum and you will find all the advice you need from Theo.

    Well done on getting that interview!
    Normally the school will tell you what lesson so that you can prepare, so if there are no details in the invitation, ring them and ask.
    Yes, as Chris says, open the Welcome thread - you'll see 2 interview clickables inside.
    Best of luck!
