    Interviewers tend to ask the same questions of people during interviews, rather than different questions for different people so that they can compare their answers.
  2. I got asked all the usual questions,
    what does 'Every Child Matters' mean to you?
    Describe a successful lesson you taught recently. What would you change about it?
    What behaviour management strategies you use and then what individual ones you use for specific children.
    What ways you assess and how you use your assessment data.
    Why they should hire you/ What strengths you should bring to the school. etc.
    Why you want to work in this school.
    What would you do if a child told you they are in trouble.
    List the qualities of a good classroom/class/lesson.

    hmmm cant think of the rest I was asked, but nothing out of the norm.

    they usually give you scenarios and then ask what you would do about it. Usually something to do with behaviour and the answer is always started with, 'Well, first of all, I would consult the school's behavioural policy...'

    or they may ask you about a successful lesson you have taught and explain why it was successful.

    Interviews sux. Good luck! :)
