    I have my first teaching interview in 3 years next Friday (18th)! It's to a Year 6 class, so the poor things - they have to face me after a week of tests!!
  2. Hi Lara
    I know you said this to another poster:
    I did actually say this to myself just prior to my interview! It did actually help [​IMG]
    The power of positive thinking eh?
    Good luck to all the other jobseekers

    I have an interview late next week... good luck would be much appreciated!!

    Also, can I ask... what is the 'I am a good teacher' act??

    Will add to to the usual update on Sunday so we all know to keep our fingers crossed.
    Well, I often liken teaching in front of a class, especially under observed conditions, as a bit like 'acting' out a part in a production. You 'act out' being a 'good teacher' (or even better outstanding of course) and hopefully give a convincing performance and 'whenever you fool the people you fool yourself as well' by believing in yourself in that role. If you see what I mean.
  5. I've got an interview for an SEN teacher post next friday (18th) it's my dream job so I really hope I do myself justice!

    First round today :/ so scared!
  15. I didn't get mine :( Apparently I was a very very close second but it doesn't make me feel any better!

    Oh disappointing for you mrsmb17, especially if you liked the school.
    You're right, coming second isn't any consolation. On the positive side, remember, even the Gold medal winner will have had their fair share of coming 'placed' before they got that much wanted 'First'.
    In the meantime what about looking at our Flowers . . .thread and see if there's been a delivery.
  17. Thanks Marlin and little crossed fingered girl, it worked!
    I have no idea who still has job interviews outstanding, but best of luck to you all! :)

    I was trying to do an update but there have been <u>so</u> many posts re getting jobs recently.
    I know littlemissdarling is preparing for tomorrow, so to her and all preparing for interviews Thursday and Friday

  19. I've got an interview tomorrow... it's my 2nd interview so far (just finishing my training year) but my first one that has an actual teaching element. =D Incredibly nervous but quite excited too!

    Good luck to everyone else that has interviews coming up. (Also good luck to those that have yet to be shortlisted!)
