    So anyone else to add to the list for week beg 30 Jan ? I seem to have
    badgergirl (apologies if I've ommitted you, it's sometimes easy to miss if you've added it to another post), so any others want to add your name? I'll update Sun evening with a full list.

    You don't have <u>to be specific on the da</u>y and don't have to post if you don't 'get the job' - we all understand. (However we do try and send you a consolation bouquet on the Flowers thread if you do post- can be as short and simple as 'disappointed' or some such. ) It really is a very supportive forum.

    As promised a little reminder for all of us to keep our fingers crossed for the following who have interviews sometime this week.
    (apologies if I've ommitted you, it's sometimes easy to miss if you've added it to another post),
    Let's hope by this time next week we have a flurry of 'Dear Theo I got the job' posts.

  7. Good luck everyone. I have an interview too this week (number 7!) Fingers crossed! x

    Let's hope 7 might be your lucky number!
  9. Oh, thanks Lara. That really means alot x
  10. Thanks for the good luck messages.

    Good luck to everyone else who has an interview this week. Fingers crossed.

    Just realised there's tigger82 to add to this list of
    So again

  12. Good luck to everyone with interviews this week. I had an interview yesterday and as I've been lurking on here for a while without posting myself I decided if I didn't get the job I should really say hello on this thread as it's a great idea! So obviously didn't get the job and now back to the drawing board. My feedback was basically that my answers were not as indepth as the other candidates. I'm an NQT though so feel that lack of experience makes it difficult to answer like someone with years of experience to draw on! I've signed up to a supply agency but as my current CRB was over 3 months old I had to pay 50 pounds to get a new CRB before I can work for them, and which still hasn't arrived almost 4 weeks later! Should they really take this long? Anyway, I will stop moaning now and wish good luck again to everyone this week :)

  13. £50? £50????? Next time you sign up to an agency firstly check if they do portability on your current CRB. If not, then simply REFUSE to pay anything over £44 for another one as that is the current price! Also CRBs can take FOREVER. If you haven't got it by 6 weeks then start enquiring about where it is!

    Anyway, bad luck with your last interview. A good piece of advice I was given was that whatever I say try and back it up with examples. If they ask you about AfL for example, mention anything you've done such a pair/group work, peer assessment, quizzes etc. Good luck with any others you may have lined up!
