    First of all - congrats! I'm sure there probably is an old thread on here or elsewhere for questions if you google it - however I think there are some things you're always pretty likely to get asked. I'm a second time round applicant and last time I was asked things such as -
    - What attracts me to teaching
    - Why that particular university
    - Specific questions such as: how you would manage behaviour or situations, e.g. you hear racial abuse in the classroom, what would you do?
    - What can you bring to the course? (any special skills, e.g. if you play an instrument)
    - What did you learn from your school experience?
    - What is a current issue in education that concerns you? Discuss its implications.

    A good list can also be found here on Kent Uni's website, should give you an idea of what to prepare for :). Just prepare and make sure you reflect on your school experience - teaching is all about reflection. Good luck!
