I'm getting really worried about my interview tomorrow. It's for a TLR role and I meet all the criteria on the job and person spec, I've got loads of experience to bring but it's just the interview that always lets me down. I've been for an informal visit, spent time with the children and current postholder and they've all been very positive. I'm just so nervous about the interview and there isn't a lesson involved so it's all on that. I find that although lots of the things I'm asking about I know I can do, I just freeze when asked about them. For example, if I'm asked about how I would deal with a challenging colleague or a colleague who needed support, I do this all the time but I can't say HOW I do it! It's the same with questions about raising achievement or how I monitor and track progress. I do this all the time but I can't think up good answers on the spot as to how I do it. I just read Theo's thread about safeguarding questions and got all nervous again as I know I could answer them all with enough time to think it through but I'm so awful at thinking on the spot. In a non interview situation I could think of loads of examples to demonstrate the skills they need but on the spot I end up waffling and embarrassing myself! You'll all probably say that if I can't answer them I shouldn't be going for the job but I know I can do the job and do it well. Arghhh!
