  3. They kept it rather vague on my interview ("what makes a good English teacher?"), so we could bring up our own issues and experience. And they're looking for someone who'll make a good teacher, not a good journalist! And the strikes are more a teachER issue than teachING, if you see what I mean?
    Questions that you might want to consider are more personal- why do YOU want to be a teacher, why would YOU make a good teacher, etc?

    Best of luck!
     
  4. I'm now worrying about the same problem. What did they ask you about in your interview?
     
  5. I didnt get asked about an issue at all after all that worrying they just asked why do you think you would be a good teacher, what challenges do you think face teachers in the classroom and what would you find difficult about teaching the third was a scenrio what would i do if i witnessed homophobic behaviour in the playground and lastly I had to tell them about my experience hope this helps x
