    Can be either!
    I've just come back from an interview:-
    • Why do you want to work at our school?
    • Tell me about your last appraisal
    • What would parents, staff or children say about you?
    • APP & AfL
    • Creative curriculum
    • Behaviour management
    • Tell me about your present classroom
    • ICT skills
    • Who in your current faculty do you admire/respect and why?
    These were some of my questions just yesterday.

    I've got an interview tomorrow for a school in Spain, but I already live there so I will be going to the school in person.
    I would imagine the Skype call would be video so they can see you and how you present yourseff.
    I had another interview a few months ago. One of the questions they asked was How would you deal with a difficult parent? Which I thought was a bit odd, rather than ask How would you deal with a difficult student?
    I have been unemployed for a bit so I expect to be asked what I did in that time. I uploaded loads of resources onto the TES site and have had lots of positive feedback from that, so that's my answer sorted.
    I expect they might also ask you about your family and if you have any dependents. I was asked at my first interview for an international job what my parent's thought of my moving abroad. I was 25 at the time!
    Good luck!
